OriginEdit

Charles B. Franklin was an engineer and motorcycle racer who worked on designs for the Indian Motorcycle Company, including the original models of the Scout and Chief. Prior to this, he had been part of the Indian motorcycle team that won first, second, and third place in the 1911 Isle of Man TT, finishing in second place.

EffectsEdit

The camshaft will collect nearby pieces of scrap and disused salvage to form a fully functioning motorcycle. Some pieces will be reformed and twisted to create the appropriate parts, while others will be cast aside entirely. The resulting vehicle will be road worthy and compatible with standard gasoline, although high speeds may weaken the structure of the frame.
