1929 Indian Motorcycle "Altoona" Hillclimber
(engine right side)

[right side of engine of 1929 Indian Motorcycle]
    Note the bronze timing cover which is a distinctive feature of Franklin's  "Altoona"  race motor.

    The special racing transmission utilizes a single speed  "in-and-out box,"  and unlike the Indian production transmission,  the kickstart mechanism is on the right side of the machine.
