Vintage is in and almost every major motorcycle manufacturer knows it. Everyone from Triumph to Honda is either resurrecting or redesigning new “old” models. Even vintage racing is back with a flat track revival leading the charge, and “new-old” heavyweight contender Indian taking on Harley-Davidson at Sturgis this year. Harley-Davidson has taken this interest in the archaic one step further by producing a TV series highlighting their racing roots and history.
