#118 Fred Wacker Lake Forest, IL
1913 Indian Hedstrom
My name is Fred Wacker, and I am looking forward to our second time participating in the Motorcycle Cannonball. As in 2016, Lucky 13 Racing is running my late fatherís 1913 Hedstrom-powered Indian twin. Being around this motorcycle rekindles happy memories of my dad. He bought the bike in milk crates for loose change when I was 12 years old or so and I remember going to Iowa with him in our old Ford van to get it. I had some great times with my old man when it came to cycles, and that fun continues today. With a truly outstanding team of friends helping ready this 105 year old motorcycle to make its second cross country trip-- chief mechanic and main man Joe Walano, machinist and engineer Frank Schiddel, engine builder John Schnittker-- and with great family behind us, we are looking forward to another good cross country run with friends old and new!
