Re: 1979 Indian moped for sale

But this is a good opportunity to relate the actual history of the Indian moped. It was one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated in all mopedum.

Some slick lawyer purchases the highly recognizable Indian name at bankruptcy auction for a few thousand dollars.

He then tries to capitalize as much as possible on the famous name known for quality by contracting the Merida factory in Taiwan in 1979 to produce a sorta clone of the Honda PC50 motor, but with the cheapest possible materials and workmanship so he can make the maximum per unit. At that time, Merida made total junk, and the quality of the metal parts was so low, cranks, pushrods, valves etc would snap at random. Thus began the short run of Indian mopeds. They were so bad, that a good number went back for warranty repairs, and the warranty was only 90 days! People caught on that this whole thing was nothing but a scam, and the company was sold in 1982 again for peanuts. Yet even today, people fall for the "Indian" name and associate it with collectability. The only thing they collect is dust and idiots.
