    My Wife has ridden my Indian Scout and she like the way it rides, so now I believe she wants her own....

    I am looking for an Indian Princess.

    Anybody have one they are looking to get rid of, let me know!

    You could possibly get a Raleigh if you cant find an Indian, and make it look like one??

    It's probably much easier to find a Phillips, than specifically an Indian branded Phillips.

    You both are probably right, but I know there has to be an Indian Princess for sale out there somewhere.... just need Frameset, fork, bottom bracket and crank.

    If I could find the Ladies version, it will be built to match.

    This is a very old Indian Princess Bike from the 1930's i think. it has been sitting so long that the tires rotted in the flat position so the bike doesnt roll. the bike is in fantastic condition for the age and i think it would ride with some new tires and tubes. it was surely under cover for all the time because the chrome looks like it will clean up and the mechanics seem to function still.
    this bike is collectible, made by the same company that made the motorcycles. check it on google
    will consider offers, but i think this is a fair price.

    Hey RatFink,

    I was just looking through some of my older post and came across this one. Did you end up doing anything with the Princess yet? I would love to see some pictures.

    Highship...

    Ok here's the deal,

    My wife isnt the most patient person around, so I ended up buying her a brand new Schwinn hybrid to ride.

    In the meantime, I did get the Indian Princess completely stripped down, and ready for paint. I also found a nice 700c wheelset for it and tires. I do plan on finishing the build, but since she has her own bike to ride, I am in no rush. Now I have time to finish my projects :mrgreen:
