Indian Larry was an old school custom motorcycle builder based in Brooklyn, NY. His hardcore style was a blend of classic choppers and hot rod race bikes. He got the name Indian Larry in the 1980s riding the streets of New York City on a chopped Indian motorcycle. He was interested in hot rods and motorcycles at an early age and was influenced by Von Dutch and Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.
He died in 2004, shortly after this was filmed, from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident while performing stunt riding at a bike show. Larry participated in the Discovery Channel programs Motorcycle Mania II with Jesse James and Biker Build-Off. During these TV shows, he built the motorcycles – Daddy-O Rat Fink bike, Wild Child, and Chain of Mystery. RIP Indian Larry.
