Indian Larry R.I.P

For all you Big Chopper fans out there It is a sad thing to hear that a legand Bike Builder Indian Larry Died. On Agust 30. 2004 Indian Larry was Killed while doing a stunt on his Bike.

I for one am a BIG TIME CHOPPER FAN and know that Indian Larry's and his work will be missed all around the world.

He was doing the stunt were he would stand up on his bike with his arms stright out. And what i read is he went to slow down by useing his foot to hit the throutle and feel off the bike.

Some guy at work was telling me about this, bummer. Only if he was wearing his helmet.

He will be missed. He had a unique style to his choppers. He died doing something he loved. Not many get that but I am sure he would have. TB

omg! That sucks! I watch this guy on Discovery Channel, and I just love the bikes he builds. He will truly be missed; and I have to agree with Tim and Julie B, he did die doing something that he loved.

I guess we'll be stuck watching the big egos build bikes on TV now (like WCC & OCC) Larry was all about bikes, not look at me I'm acting cool on TV. The man was a true artist. I can totally picture him riding standing up on his seat with a big smile all the way to the heavens. Peace Bro Mark

Gonesnakee.....I agree with most of what you said there. All untill you said WCC. I for one am a big fan of Jesse James and there is a document movie on Jesse were he has learned what he knows from Indian Larry and they were the best of friends. Also it shows were Jesse's bikes are made from what he thinks a bike should be Not for what people will think. Jesse Started with an idea just like Larry and went with it. To me i really think that Jesse James And Indian Larry are one of a kind in their own ways.

But this is about Indian Larry and a great loss to the Bike world

That guy was awesome, I didnt like the tanks(for the choppers) he had, but his bikes were still great, I have seen him doing that stunt before too. Great guy, will be missed.
