Brian Stanley's Indian Summer

Brian Stanley's Indian Summer

By Daniel Venditto

Yes, you’ve seen Indian Summer before. Anytime Brian Stanley pulls his ’75 Shovelhead out of his garage in Kennett Square, PA, social media blows up with shots of this blue beast. He named it mainly after the Doors song, but says it also represents a period of happiness or success later in life.

Most of Brian’s background in bikes comes from riding BMX while growing up in the rural suburbs of Philadelphia. He didn’t get into choppers until his mid-twenties when he got his first bike to build, a 1983 Yamaha XS 650.
