Hi Everyone,

Looking for opinions on whether this sign is real or fake. I’ve seen the fake ones that have come across eBay with the neon holes and totally look fake/repop, but this one is very different. I’ve held many porcelain signs and it fits the bill for me except for no sign mfg stamp or date. It’s heave thick layered porcelain nice eggshell, heavy like it should be, core of the sign consistent with other older porcelain. Had anyone ever seen a real one of these?? Or were they never really made and it’s a fantasy item? I’m stumped. Someone told me fake and he knows his ***** but I just wanted other opinions. Can text more pictures if anyone needs. Hope my 4 pictures uploaded.

Is it because this was never actually a sign made for Indian? Ie, no “real ones” exist?

Is there another post that proves this or is there a specific eBay seller guilty of putting out fakes?

Complete fantasy. You will be hard pressed to find ANY Original Factory Authorized Indian Motorcycle(or Motocycles) dealer signs. Dave

Looks like someone did a limit production run and was selling them on ebay for neon signs. Looks nice with the neon on it. - Paul
