Nils-Erik discovered the AMCA in 1964 through the article Art Sigal submitted to Cycle World magazine. His interest in old American bikes has kept him in the club all these years. He is also a member in the Swedish Indian club called “The Swedish Indian Society”.
When Art Sigal made a visit to Stockholm in 1968, Nils-Erik contacted the Motorcycle History Club in Sweden, of which he was a member, and took Art to different interesting places of motor history. Prior to Art’s trip, Nils-Erik supplied him with a list of 24 AMCA members from Sweden including a list of all their motorcycles. 96 bikes in all including at least 16 Harleys, 2 Indians, 1 Excelsior, 2 Henderson’s and 1 Pierce. They were able to visit XX members during that trip.
Nils-Erik said, “I have been in the United States three times. The first time in 1976 to watch the Hambletonian trotting race that took place in Du Quoin (Trotting races and horses is a big hobby of mine too). I have named several of my horses after Indian bikes. On this trip I also visited some relatives outside Kansas City and drove around in some of the states.”
The second time in USA was in 1979, after being in contact with Bob Stark in Orange County, CA. This time he ordered a 1948 Indian Roadmaster (see pictures) which he still rides today.
Nils-Erik continued saying, “I was invited to AMCA´s meeting outside Los Angeles which my son (who was with me on this trip) and I attended. We also visited Las Vegas, Seattle and Chicago on that trip.
