Indian AMI-50 Parts

This 1978 parts book has better illustrations than the later ones. So the 1978 pictures are used here. The 79, 80, 81 additional versions are added to the list with a letter suffix after the number, like 7, 7a, 7b etc. Some of these 1978 picture numbers changed in the 1979 and 1980 parts manuals, so be aware of that if you are using a different Indian Parts Book. 


Abbreviations and Color Codes
$10   means “available for $10”
N/A   means “not available”
N/A   means “unfinished, try later” 
Universal Parts
Parts not specific to Indian are only specified here. First read and remember or write down the specification, then click the link to the section for those types of parts. When you see it listed there, with a price, then it is for sale.
Dead Ends
Many sections of the website are (in order of severity) unfinished, incomplete, empty, or completely missing. In that case, you have to email Shaun to find out if something is for sale or not, for now.
Indian bolt head types

Indian bolt head types

Nuts and Bolts
The bolts and screws used on Indian are a style that 1970’s Honda motorcycles use. Throughout the parts list you see “pan phillips” for size 4, 5, 6mm metric bolts, and “hex bolt” for size 8, 10, 12mm. The pan head shape is named after an up-side-down frying pan. The flat head, also known as “countersunk” head, is for special places where the bolt head must not stick out, or where the bolt also keeps something precisely centered.  

Indian Parts Book 1 - cylinder and head

1 – Cylinder and head
This simple head has no valve guides, just precise holes in the cast iron.
There are no valve stem rubber seals, nor lips to retain any seals.
The Mikuni version head has a more-outward intake flange angle.
For Mikuni, intake pipe is 18mm clamp-on, and a 32mm head flange.
For Keihin it’s a two-6mm-bolt 32mm carb flange, and 35mm head flange.
For Tillotson it’s two-5mm-bolt 31.8mm 1.25″, and 32mm head flange.

Carb clips


Jet Needle Clips are tiny and get lost easily. The full name of that kind of clip is “metric side-mount external retaining ring (E-style)”. The clip size for moped carburetors is smaller than any motorcycle carburetor clip, because the jet needle and everything else in the carburetor is smaller. A 10mm Indian moped carb jet needle is 2.0mm thick with a 1.5 clip groove. Mikuni carbs 26mm and up have needles 2.5mm thick with a 1.9mm clip grooves, or bigger.

Indian Parts Book 3 - valves and cam shaft

3 – Valves and cam shaft
This is an over head valve (OHV) type, not an over head cam (OHC).
Head or piston replacement is easier on an OHV than an OHC,
because the cam (timing) chain is in the bottom, out of the way.

Indian front sprockets fit on many small Honda models, like early Honda 90, but not early Honda 50. They have 6 splines, 17mm inner by 20mm outer diameter. A normal Indian goes 27mph with a 15 tooth. With more power it could go 29mph with a 16T. With less power, or with quicker take-off, it could go 25mph with a 14T.

Indian pedal ratchet pawl springs, early spring steel leaf type, often broke. That caused the pedals to freewheel both ways. Besides not being able to pedal, the engine could not be started without the pedal ratchet. The upgrade springs for 1979-later were silicone rubber. Those never break. The bad part is the pedal chain and ratcheting sprocket are trapped in the center of the engine cases, and cannot be serviced without engine removal and complete disassembling, with splitting of the crankcases.

Magneto and ignition


The WTEMCO magneto is similar to a 90mm Bosch magneto, like on Puch mopeds. Many things interchange, like points, condenser, mounting plate. The original points are the older style 3-piece kind, identified by the e-clip. By removing the screw-in post, newer style one-piece Bosch points will replace the older 3-piece ones. The WTEMCO flywheel timing angle is close to Tomos, which is different than Puch.

7 – Controls and handlebar
Indian control switch wires run inside the handlebar, hidden, through holes.
Indian brake light switches screw into the controls. Their wires run outside.
Indian wires and original control cables are all silver, not black like General.
This drawing is for Lazer-type Taiwan controls, edited to resemble Indian.
So many things don’t look right or are missing. See actual photos below.

Indian spoke wheel set, new except for the silver painted hubs are scratched and the spokes are dull.



Indian spoke wheel hubs were made by Yuan Ta. That name is in the cast aluminum. These Yuan Ta 90mm hubs are also used on AMS and Trac (Dailim) mopeds. The 32 hole 17″ chrome rims say “KI 2.00×17”. This is the recommended tire size. The inner rim width is 1.30, thinner than the original spoke and mag wheel width of 1.60 inch. The brake panels do not say “Yuan Ta”, but instead say “AMI50”. For custom applications, any Grimeca 90mm moped brake panel will adapt. 



All the brake parts are the same on the mag and spoke wheels, except for the horse shoe spring is for mags, dual small coil springs are for spoke wheel. The brake shoes are the same, except the spring holes are bigger for the horse shoe spring. It’s easy to drill them if needed. The horse shoe spring is more difficult to install, but leaves room for a bigger, stronger hub center section. When coil springs rub against the rotating center section they “sing” or “zing” like a bell. The cure is a horse shoe spring.

 Indian 17″ mag wheels were made by Sport Mag II in Placentia, California USA. On the wheels that come on the bikes, no markings are in the cast aluminum, but “1.60 x 17” and “DOT” are stamped on the rim. The mags were made in natural silver or coated black with silver trim. The same mags were also sold as accessories for upgrading a spoke wheel to mag. Those say “1.60×17 Sport Mag II   DOT-N” and the date (this one 5 80 means May 1980) in the casting.

Indian Mag Set Right








Far left, a Yuan Ta 90mm rear hub, showing the 42.0mm centering ridge for the sprocket. Left, a Sport Mag II rear wheel, also with a 42.0mm center hole lip. This lip keeps the sprocket centered, running smooth, and makes the bolts last long and not come loose. Too bad a Tomos sprocket is 42.5mm, a shade bigger.



This is the label on the Mag Wheel Set box. It was shipped to A.V. Moped on Aug 23 1982 for $2.68. Myron bought out A.V. Moped a few years later.  American-made wheels, with history.

Hardware kit that comes with mag wheel set.

These are the parts needed to upgrade your original Indian spoke wheels to Sport Mag II solid aluminum wheels. The mag center spacers are a hair longer. They’re also thicker so 4 inner dust shields are provided with slightly bigger center holes, 19.5mm ID and 31.5mm OD. Here are the center spacer specs:

W218-00-50 center spacer R spoke 13x18x66.1
W118-00-50 center spacer F spoke 13x18x49.0
center spacer R mag 13×19 x 66.4
center spacer F mag 13×19 x 49.4


Also in the kit are two horseshoe style brake springs, to replace the coil ones after drilling the brake shoe spring holes bigger. Also four 5/16-18 by 3/4 long sprocket bolts thread into the American made aluminum. There once was an instruction sheet but that has been lost.

Indian Parts 10 - Frame body

10 – Frame body
The first Indian’s batteries had an eyelet black wire, a permanent ground.
But anyone could operate the lights without a key. So they added one.
The 1979-81 electric fork lock did two things when the key was removed.
1. shut off the lights and horn (by un-grounding the black battery wire)
2. it also killed/locked the ignition (by grounding the blue ignition wire).
The later wiring D437-10-50 has the battery wire and the 2 fork lock wires.
The early wiring harness D437-00-50 did not have those extra three wires.
The later one would, and did, substitute for the early, but not visa versa.
The later Indian 6N2-2A battery had a female bullet black wire, not eyelet.

Indian Gas Valve with original rubber

Indian Gas Valve with
original rotten rubber

Indian Gas Valve: is unique in that it has the same thread (M16 x 1.5) as a 1970’s Honda motorcycle gas valve, but instead of being a more common “up and down” or vertical mount, it is a “sideways” or horizontal mount. 

Many Indians have leaking gas valves. The metal part is good but the inner rubber disk is bad. There is a new Honda rubber disk, that needs two of it’s little holes widened with a Dremmel type high speed hand tool. Then it works on Indian original gas valves. There is also a substitute gas valve, but it has some drawbacks. Read more on the Indian Info page. See if the 16 x 1.5 substitute is for sale, and the price, on the Gas Valves page.

Color Stripes

Color Stripes

The color stripe stickers have creases and folds where the sticky part has been exposed to air and dust for many years. So in places it might not stick good, and/or it might have a slight bump or ridge in places where it was folded for 20 years. They are sold as is and priced accordingly.  

The gold script tank and side stickers are also old, but not wrinkled. They peel off the back paper OK, but the front paper sticks and tears. It must be carefully removed piece by piece.

Indian front sprockets fit on many small Honda models, like early Honda 90, but not early Honda 50. They have 6 splines, 17mm inner by 20mm outer diameter. Indian rear sprockets have a 42.0mm centering hole with four 8.5mm bolt holes, spaced 62mm apart, center to center.   

In the above right photo, at left are 100mm brakes, at right are 90mm ones. The 100mm brakes are for the 1980-81 Mira snowflake style aluminim wheels. At bottom right is an installed horse shoe brake spring. Above that are dual coil springs installed. The coil springs make it easier to put the brake shoes onto the panel: “fold the taco into a tortilla”. See Service Dept.

Indian Battery (early)

Indian Battery (early)
6N2-2A black = eyelet
red = fem+dbl fem bullet

Indian Battery wires (late) 6N2-2A black = fem bullet red = fem + dbl fem bullet

Indian Battery (late)
6N2-2A blk = fem bullet
red = fem+dbl fem bullet

Indian Battery Wires: As mentioned above in the frame section, there is an early and a late wiring version. The early wiring had no shut off key switch. The battery was always grounded/bolted (and thus active or “on”) to the frame . The Indian early 6N2-2A-IE battery had an eyelet connector on the black wire, an Indian logo on the front, and double female plus single female bullet connectors on the red wire. The Indian late 6N2-2A-IL battery was the same except for a female bullet on the black wire. The grey scale battery (late) image is a edited copy, but the color image below of the wires (late) is real. 

Indian Wiring Diagram

Indian Wiring Diagram




Indian Fork Lock Wires: In the wiring diagram you can see how the fork lock switch was added on to an earlier version, where the battery ground eyelet used to be. The fork lock wire labeled BK and colored black is actually green. The long BL blue fork lock wire that is shown plugged into the double female bullet above the engine, is actually short and plugs into a single female bullet above the fork lock. So one of the double blue female bullets is unused, as seen below in an actual photo.


Indian Rectifier Wires: The square black thing with red and green wires is the (half-wave) rectifier. It changes (half of) the AC, from the green wire, to rippled DC at the (+) red wire, for battery charging. Notice that on the Indian rectifier the (+)red wire is male bullet, (-)green is female bullet. The other Taiwan mopeds with that identical square black rectifier, General, Lazer, AMS, etc, almost have opposite wires. Their (+)red is female blade, and their (-)green is male bullet. Watch out!

Turn Signal Handlebar Mount

Front Turn Signal
Handlebar Mount #6a


These Indian round turn signals, that clamp on to a round post, are Taiwan copies of early 1970’s Honda ones (made by Stanley). The Stanley ones are metal, not chrome plated plastic, and have a slightly bigger post and clamp diameter. A 1973 Honda (Stanley) turn signal needs a strip of aluminum can, a single layer, to clamp on to a 1979 Taiwan moped turn signal post.

Handlebar Mounted Front Turn Signals: These shiny aluminum mounts clamp the front turn signals to the handlebars where they’re protected. Say good bye to broken front signals! They’re not in the 1978-81 Indian Parts Books (by American Moped Associates), but they are in the 1982 Indian Operators Guide (by Leone Accessories – Indian Motor Company), at right. So they are included here in the Indian parts “reunion”. The normal front turn signal chrome posts, with M10 x 1.25 threads, screw into the Taiwan head light body to hold it on. When handlebar mounted turn signals are used, M10 x 1.25 x 20 chrome hex bolts hold the head light on. This also gives a cleaner look, although the signals droop down at an angle.
