GET AT IT! American motorcycle racing pioneer Arthur G. Chapplle blasting down the road course during the New York Motorcycle Club's annual Spring Run held on Sunday May 9, 1909. Chapplle was arguably Indian's second in command behind Jake DeRosier when it came to working magic on the track and he held a lengthy tenure with the Springfield company. Chapplle also served as the Captain of the NYMC and can be seen here with a rooster tail of dust flying off of his factory "torpedo tank" Indian twin.
