The two met each other when Hendee requested him to make a pacer better than others. They eventually went into business together in 1901 with Hedstrom’s designs being inventive and successful. He and Hendee eventually both resigned, Hedstrom because he thought the Board of Directors was doing questionable things to make Indian Motorcycle stocks worth more.
