The 1970 MY Indian Velo 500 was one of the many attempts to revive the American brand, this time, by Floyd Clymer, who has made a number of attempts to revive the classic brand. This particular machine has been co-developed with two German firms, Munch and Horex as well as other ones, and finally succeeded in 1969, with the unveiling of the Indian Velo 500. It sports a 499cc, four-stroke, single cylinder engine, which could produce a claimed 34 horsepower at 6200 rpm. Also laced wheels, a chromed exhaust, a dual seat, dual rear shocks, a telescopic fork, drum brakes and a blacked-out frame.
