'Indian Larry' Said Killed at Bike Show

CONCORD, N.C. August 30, 2004; The AP reported that a custom motorcycle builder known for his appearances on cable's Discovery Channel died Monday at a hospital of head injuries suffered during a stunt, officials said.

"Indian Larry" fell off a motorcycle Saturday while performing before 8,000 people at an arena outside Charlotte. He was not wearing a helmet, the officials said.

Indian Larry was standing on the moving bike when it began to wobble and went out of control, said Mike Downs, Cabarrus County deputy manager. His full name was not immediately known.

"Indian Larry was a man with great skill and talent as a mechanic and metal sculptor," said Robert Freeman, chairman of the county board of commissioners. "He will be truly missed by his fans here in Cabarrus County and throughout the nation."

Indian Larry, who appeared in movies and television shows, was featured on a Discovery Channel series in which motorcycle builders design and build bikes from scratch, then have them judged by motorcycle aficionados.

That's the reason boys and girls why I always wear a freaking helmet on a motorcycle, even around a parking lot. Falling off one of those will mess you up good...especially when you already have a cracked skull like me...

Indian Larry was one of the few guys that would have his bike going 70MPH and just stand right up on it. Or he would lay down on his bike while it was going that fast.

I'm trying to remember what he said when him and Jesse James went on a trip,something like he would always put his faith in God when he rode.

Idiot.

I find it hard to feel bad about someone who does something really stupid and dies because of it.
