TM10-1283 ~ Indian Motorcycle ~ Model 340 ~ Manual of Care and Maintenance Manual

This is a quality reprint of US Army Manual TM10 1283.  Originally published in October of 1941, it is apparently a very early manual produced for the army.  The TM number has been rubber stamped on the cover and an authorization statment pasted inside the front cover.  This is the military version of the 74 c.i.d. "Chief".  The motorcycle is very similar to the late prewar Chiefs.  Forks are leaf spring with plunger suspension in the rear.  The engine information and transmission is the same for all 74s, including early post war 74 inch Chiefs.
