A Modern Retro Back-to-the-Future Classic?

Anybody have any experience--or any reaction at all--to this bike? Evidently it was first designed in 1913 and is still being built in India. A bike shop called Yellow Jersey sells it in the USA.

Might be worth taking a look through the archives. I recall seeing this discussed at least twice since November.

Yep. several times. I've owned one Indian bike and one Brit one. Fun, heavy and look cool. Workmanship on those kind of sucks but they never break.
