Rebuilding the Indian: A Memoir

Rebuilding the Indian: A Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The building of a vintage Indian Chief motorcycle is more than the restoration of a bike—its the resurrection of a dream. Rebuilding the Indian chronicles one mans journey through the fearful expanse of midlife in a quest for peace, parts, and a happy second fatherhood. Fred Haefele was a writer who couldnt get his book published, an arborist whose precarious livelihood might just kill him, and an expectant father for the first time in over twenty years. He was in a rut, until he purchased a box of parts not so euphemistically referred to as a “basket case” and tackled the restoration of an Indian Chief motorcycle. With limited mechanical skills, one foot in the money pit, and a colorful cast of local experts, Haefele takes us down the rocky road of restoration to the headlong, heart-thrilling rush of open highway on his gleaming midnight-blue Millennium Flyer.

Synopsis:

Constructing a vintage Indian motorcycle from a box of parts is more than the restoration of a bike for Haefele--it's the resurrection of a dream. "Rebuilding the Indian" chronicles one man's journey through the fearful expanse of midlife in a quest for peace, parts, and a happy second fatherhood.
