Indian Larry Memorial

Indian Larry Memorial

I didn't get to the Indian Larry memorial until about 7pm. It was already dark out and ending soon. Nonetheless, it was an impressive tribute to an impressive man.

N 14th st, the location of Larry's garage/shop, was closed off. There was a stage & bbq outside and beer inside the shop. Here are some pictures.

Indian Larry RIP.

My riding bud and myself managed to escape all the rain while riding down from Ottawa Canada last Saturday to attend Larry's memorial. We got a little lost, crossed some bridges in New York City that we didn't intend to cross...but found the group and soaked up the tremendous atmosphere of fondness for Larry. It was a great experience and a fitting tribute to a unique human being. Canadian fans will miss him.
By the way, my Road King had a flat early Monday
morning near New Windsor. No accident, no rain, and a ton of help from super people at the local Harley dealer...not to mention the fact that 5 individuals stopped to ask if they could be of assistance while my bud searched out the dealer.
New Yorkers...thank you.

Even though I was only there for a little while at the end of the night, I had an amazing time.. Just to see that many people still there at the end of the night to remember a legand is an amazing thing... I am glad that I got to experience just a little of what went on during the entire day...

BrooklynVegan thanks for all the great info on the site....

Just wanted to express my deeepest sadness over the loss of Indian Larry to his wife and children. When My girlfriend and I (who are both bikers) saw the "Great Biker Build-off" on the DISCOVERY channel, we knew right away that we HAD to meet him one day. Despite his outward appearance, we knew that he was one of nicest persons anyone would want to meet. He seemed to be a gentle man, of unparalelled talent, and friendliness and love towards his fellow riders. I didn't find out about his death until a couple of days ago....months after the fact. Needless to say I was shocked as all hell!!!
And I was surprised, and sometimes sickened over the lack of stories written in the various harley/chopper mags. However, the article in EASYRIDERS WAS ABSOLUTELY WELL WRITTEN AND EXCELLENT IN EVERY ASPECT.... as compared to the tiny, an I mean SMALL, stories printed in mags. like American Iron. I know what Magazies I will NOT be Reading ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!
My heart goes out to Larry's wife and children over their loss of such a fine husband and father. God bless you all, and GodSpeed LARRY!!!
Sincerely,
Juan

Many blessings to Indian Larry's family during this extremely difficult time in their lives.
My 80yr.old mom and I loved to watch the gentle
soul who had the talent of Michaelangelo doing what he loved best. The supreme artistry of a bike
builder is what Larry represented to all his fans
and we will miss him very much.
May God Bless
you Larry

Although I never met Crazy Larry, I will miss him. I never noticed him to point or yell at someone, yet his emotions and ideas came through crystal clear. His personality was filled with wisdom and personality that will be sorely missed by many of his friends, family, and fans. He proved people can change for the better and make a difference in the world.

Rarely in life do we find someone who can take everything life throws at them, both good and bad, and let those experiences mold them into such a truely great person. While I never had the honor of meeting Larry, I do know that just knowing of him and his views of life and existence have changed me for the better.

Indian Larry was the nicest man. He let me sit on his bikes and gave me free posters. He was a great man.

Hola
en todo el tiempo que e estado en USA nunca habia bisto una persona tan noble que aun con tantos anos de logro nunca se vio que haiga perdido su sencilles.
conoci su trabajo en Monster Garage, Motocicle Mania y otro programa que no recuerdo. Pero en ellos el reflejaba el gusto por construccion de motocicletas y el gusto por el manejo en moto.
Mil respetos a sus familiares y ya saben en donde les esperara.

GOD WAS LOOKING FOR A CHOOPER BUILDER AND HE FOUND ONE OF THE BEST ON HEART.

GOD BLESS HIS WAY UP TO THE SKY.

I was in Fallujah Iraq when I got the news about Indian Larry. He will be missed by many I do not think he ever relized the amount of people out there, many who have never met him in person, who had their lives touched by Indian Larry. Im one of those.
Keep on Ridin

I never rode choppers, but it was easy to see what a cool guy Larry was on the TV biker build off shows. After all the adversity he lived through it seemed like he really had himself together and was happy, humorous and witty and was really his own man. His life story is an inspiration and a testimony to never giving up and always trying to do better. It is a huge shame that he died so young and I will very much miss seeing him and his fabulous motorcycles on TV.

Much respect to a man who lived his life the way he wanted, always true to himself and his family, I never met you bro, but I'm sure we shared a lot of the same principles in life, save a place for me in the big ride, peace out brother...

Posted by Don | December 22, 2005 10:56 PM

I consider myself a hard angry man,i cried a big tear when i heard about larry.
Well over a year later i've just rolled through one hours of emotions watching discoverys tribute to larry,sadness,joy,grief and wonder while cring big tears once again.
Seeing his smile again just inspires me to chill out,stop drinking so much,think about what i'm doing and maybe put little more soul into what i'm fabricating.
I along with everyone that new of you misses you deeply larry.
Gone but never forgotten.

Hi! i'm a 19 yr old kid bck in "INDIA" - mumbai!... and i am an avid fan of the legend "INDIAN LARRY" . I too am interested in metal work and automobile engg. and especially making Choppers but there's not much scope here in India . I know for a fact that Indian Larry wasn't a man but he was an institution. All i wanna say is that i'm inspired and my life has changed just by watchin him on Biker Build Off (thanx to discovery).i can only imagine the person he was. Thanx a lot WILD CHILD!

Hey there,

I happened to be in the area that day with my camera. I put together a video of the party. I wasn't exactly sure what was going on until I interviewed some folks. Here is is:

I took my first home loans when I was not very old and this supported my business very much. However, I require the term loan once again.

A really attractive idea just about this. Study and don't forget - if you have to work and study at the same time, there are hotshots who are ready to aid you with your essays when you under time encumbrance. I'd recomend in this case the most positive amongs buy thesis where you can bargain for custom content.

Posted by buy dissertation | March 19, 2010 12:18 PM

You wrote a smashing outcome to assist inexperienced people with their custom research paper tasks, I guess. Even the research writing service would not have a chanse to create such kind of hot analysis essay.

Posted by gary-hanlon | April 4, 2010 5:06 PM

There is a pleasant sort of bustle as people get their breakfasts and fill plastic buckets with rags and bottles of cleaning fluids, but surprisingly little conversation outside of a few references to what people ate (pizza) and drank (Jell-O shots are mentioned) over the weekend. Within each brand-name area, there are of course dozens of items, even dozens of each kind of item. But fortunately, the commercial tells us, we workers can exert the same kind of authority over our painkillers that our bosses exert over us.

Rest in peace Larry, you were a true inspiration to me,I wear your "question mark" neckless as a religous person wears a cross or star,your legacy lives on through those who loved you for the person you were.

Posted by Al "the Gent" Pruden | September 27, 2010 9:22 PM

August 2004 the world lost a legend Indain will always live on in our hearts. My prayers and thoughts go out to his wife Bambi all of his family and to all of the guys that helped build all of those great choppers.
"REST IN PEACE INDAIN LARRY"

Larry's tattoos were the coolest I've ever seen. His style of ink was totally unique.
