According to The Kneeslider, Polaris is moving production of Indian Motorcycles from Kings Mountain, North Carolina, to Spirit Lake, Iowa. While it isn't an ideal situation for those who build Indians in North Carolina, it will keep the historic brand American made.

Polaris is consolidating Indian into the same plant as several of its other brands, including Victory Motorcycles. Though Indian manufacture isn't expected to create any new jobs, the plant where they will be made has added 100 new employees in the last year.

With the full backing of Polaris' vast resources, Indian looks poised to make a decent comeback after years of uncertainty, and that's great news to fans of classic American-style cruising.
