MILESTONE AUCTIONS OF Willoughby, Ohio will be offering one of the most unique motorcycle toys to come up for auction in recent memory. The toy is the classic Hubley cast iron Indian Armored “Bandit Chaser” Motorcycle. This particular bike is factory painted in battleship gray. The same gray Hubley used on the Elgin Street Sweeper. The other most unique difference is the removable armored shield has N.Y P.D. cast into it. All known examples of the Hubley Armored Motorcycle are painted red and have a shield with no markings.
Story has it this bike was made as a Salesman Sample for Indian Motorcycles to sell the concept of Armored Motorcycles to the New York City Police Department.
