Kiwi Mike Strider Bike Builder
Mike Tomas, aka Kiwi Mike, started his Indian Motorcycle journey in New Zealand performing repairs and fabricating parts for equipment on his father’s farm.
He got his first Indian at age 17.
What sparked his interest in the Indian brand was when a man passed by him on a ‘41. Mike instantly fell in love with the lines and chased down the rider to learn more about his new dream machine. That interest led Mike to cross the pond in the early 1980’s ass he headed to American to seek his dream.
In the 1990’s, Mike showed up at the Davenport Swap in Iowa with the industry’s first illustrated catalog for Indian Motorcycle parts. He’s now manufacturing some 1500 different part numbers and building replica Indian engines made 100% with Kiwi Indian Motorcycle’s parts.
