Nige
I last saw a red Indian of Nimbuwalla in a rally in Pune many years ago. No idea of the current status, or the fact that he had one more.

I should have been more clear. There were two Indians owned by two nimbuwalla's one was red the second was white I think. I am not sure if the Nimbuwalla's were brothers or cousins or neither.

Here is an interesting factory illustration of a 3 wheeled Bullet - I assume created to cater to the phat-phatiya market in Delhi. Any idea if these were actually factory produced?

There were a lots of them in the 60's and 70's. They were delivery vans. I assume that they were made by the factory.

Here are a couple of gems from a 2006 event in Pune, both apparently from Hyderabad. Wasif, do you remember them?

An Indian, though apparently not a Chief.

A Dominator 650SS, top of the line. A very handsome and capable machine.

The Indian I have never seen before but that Dommie looks pretty familiar.

BTW my dada had an identical Dommie with an APY reg that has been lost probably forever.

Default Enfield/Indian ServiCar.

There was factory Enfield trike, it was a joint
production with another company. Enfield trike had a reverse gear, too. In the USA and Canada, they were sold as the Indian Patrol Car.
