Von Dutch Indian 4 in Color...

...found in Dudley's Basement ‹link

The Imposter was one of the coolest choppers of all time (in my opinion), and it ain't a Harley, but an Indian... and a Four at that!

Finally a color photo of the Imposter. It wasn't identified on Dudley's blog. I hadn't seen another post about this photo, so I wanted to get the word out. I'll bet more photos will some day emerge since it's picture was likely taken by many show goers. (photo is slightly enlarged, enhanced and restored)

Irish Rich did a post on this cool Indian when he used to do his Von Dutch Mondays series. Rich posted this and two other black and white photos from the Art of Von Dutch book. I too have the book, and have since been hoping that more information or color photos would emerge.

The Nostalgia on Wheels blog had the link to Dudley's awhile ago for old show bike photos. If you missed it, use the link at the top of this post to see more bikes from the same era.

Aw, nice find, Chris.

Nice you have a copy of The Art Of Von Dutch, and I'm glad I got it when it first came out. Have you seen the PRICE on this book now?

Rich, I didn't know it was such a limited edition and waited a bit too long before getting it. Had to pay twice the original price, but it was worth it. I went directly to Tornado studios and picked it up. cool dudes. I almost bought two and probably should have since it's now sold out. I'm sure they are fetching big dollars on ebay.

That is a nice chopper! Even as a Chopper fan, I don't know much about Von Dutch's choppers mainly just his paint and attitude.
