    Yes this will be my forth Indian bike but will actually be a cycle.

    In the 1920s Indian produced Bicycles in the hope they would
    sell on the back of their motorcycles success. Can't really find
    much on the net on them other than the site below.

    I have heard of the Malvern Star Bikes. They made a muscle bike called the "Malvern Star Dragster". Australia Post had a stamp of it as well that I used as my avatar for a while.

    Does "actually be a cycle" mean that it will be motorized?
