Laconia Rally News: Team American Iron To Race Classic Handshift Indian Motorcycle

If you are planning on attending the Laconia Rally in June you might consider swinging by the New Hampshire Motor Speedway to check out the classic motorcycle racing Saturday June 14 and Sunday June 15, 2014.

Among the classic racers will be our very own Buzz Kanter, Editor-in-Chief of American Iron Magazine, coming out of a 35 year retirement to road race a 1937 Indian Sport Scout handshift racer on the track. He plans to complete in at least two classes each day – the challenging tank shifter class, and the Pre-1950 class.

Buzz will be racing the ex-Butch Baer 1937 Indian Sport Scout. He will be wearing a Bell helmet, and Vanson leathers and using Spectro oils in the racer. There will be a number of classic and vintage motorcycle races on Saturday (USCRA)and again on Sunday with the FIM’s North American Vintage Road Racing Championships. You can purchase tickets the day of the races for the stands or up-close and personal in the racer pits. For more information please visit
