Hi guys, i'm builds my first Indian board track, and i'm have a question.
I'm looking for a engine for it, can you recommended something? I'm want this engine will looking just a original, so it's best if it had 2 cylinders.
I saw mini v twin engine but i don't know where looking for this.

I will suggest that you look at the past builds on the forum of Indians. Pick the ones that look like what you are trying to build, Then pick an engine to fit the build. If money is not a problem, you might also look at finding a vintage v twin.

Veskt & Dare devil's v twin threads are very detailed. V twin Briggs single speed and Yamaha 250cc V twin 5 speed twin used on those two builds.

Kohler, Briggs, Honda & Harbor freight all offer these industrial, horizontal shaft V twin motors in various displacements all single speed. They are all quite heavy and bulky. The V twin Lifan (knockoff) of the Yamaha Virago 250cc five speed is also readily available. I bought a Briggs and the Virago for my V twin but after visualizing both setups I decided to shelve the project hoping to find a more suitable v twin to build around. I haven't found one yet.

The Vekst bike turned out well using a Briggs V Twin with CVT drive....a lot of Cushman scooters use the Honda, Harbor Freight or Briggs V twin conversion with CVT and run super. Whatever the choice of V twin engine the frame had better be well designed, fabricated of the best materials and using quality technique or the results will be both disappointing and dangerous. Moto is correct bring cash...even if you are given the motor for free.
