Indian Larry's bike, Grease Monkey, was featured in Easyriders magazine in September 1998. This is an Eexert from a 2001 interview IL: I don’t make sacrifices with my bikes anymore. I have to find a balance where I’m pretty happy with the way it performs functionally and the way it looks visually. I think the grease monkey represents that. It doesn’t’ have a long front end, it doesn’t have a wide back tire; it doesn’t need either of them. It does exactly what I want it to do. There’s plenty of power and it handles great around curves and straights. I view it as a beautiful bike and from what other people tell me, they see it as a beautiful bike also. You know, I’ve ridden with a lot of guys with extended front ends, fat tires, softails, and so on, but at those speeds, they just go away. That’s what a chopper is to me: Extreme hot rod. It’s not a custom. A track roadster is a beautiful bike in its own right, but it’s a track roadster and not a chopper.
