Indian Dragster

This is one of the coolest drag bikes ever, I believe it started as a 1937 Sport Scout.  It was built and raced by Stan Dishong of Vallejo Calif.  I have had it on here before but it sticks in my mind because I used to ogle it every time I went into Stan's shop as a kid.

I need to get more particulars as to engine size and what kind of speeds it turned out and will upgrade as I go.

It is a '37 Indian Scout Dragster that Stan put the first ever racing slick on. This was back in 1953. The Indian ran mid 11-sec runs day in and day out. A truly wild an amazing bike.  It evidently went 118 mph in the quarter.  I wonder what it would have done at El Mirage ?
