I thought this was a very interesting photo added earlier by Whitcrane because I think it's one of the early Indian Motorcycles that Western Electric sold to Telco companies for phone servicemen to use. They sold a one cycle and a two cycle if I remember correctly. They appear in one of the WE early catalogs.
