I just read that Indian Larry died. Supposedly he was standing on his bike and he lost control. If you know Indian Larry he rarely wears his helmet. He suffered serious head trauma and died the next day at the hospital.
He was a great chopper builder. Kept it nice and old school and was local to my area.
RIP.

Thats sad to hear. Those various chopper shows on Discovery channel always showed him riding and standing on his motorcycle. RIP

RIP.. I talked to him a little bit at last years' Biketoberfest. He was pretty cool... still a squid though for not wearing a helmet. ;-) I took a good picture of him and my girlfriend. I'll have to post it up later.

Indian Larry, a master motorcycle mechanic and stunt man, passed away this morning following an accident while performing Saturday at the Liquid Steel Classic and Custom Bike Series show at Cabarrus Arena and Events Center in Concord. He was best known for his appearances on Discovery Channel's "Great Biker Build-Off" show.


"He was riding and standing up on his seat," said Mike Downs, Cabarrus County deputy county manager. "The bike started to wobble and he was not able to regain control."

Indian Larry fell off the bike before a crowd of about 8,000. He was not wearing a helmet. Paramedics were standing by and aided him until he could be airlifted to CMC, Downs said.

"Cabarrus County along with the staff at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center sends its sincere condolences to the family of Indian Larry," said Robert M. Freeman, chairman of the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners. "Indian Larry was a man with great skill and talent as a mechanic and metal sculptor. He will be truly missed by his fans here in Cabarrus County and throughout the nation."


Indian Larry was best known for his eccentric nature, according to his official Web site. His résumé includes movie, video and television.

RIP Larry.... You were the definition of "old skool".......

RIP Indian Larry.

I'm really glad someone started this post. I also met Indian Larry at Biketoberfest last year, what a nice guy he was taking time to talk to me. He was an amazing metal worker and bike builder. It really is sad man.....

Do me a favor guys, keep ya lids on and strapped. One of my good friends rides with his lid but doesn't strap it and I yell at him all the time. I hope this will wake his a$$ up.

RIP Larry.....This is a major loss for bikers everywhere, sport and chopper riders! :cry:
