I do know Maisto used to make diecast Harleys in 1/25 scale, but these are hard to come by nowadays... I was looking to get some to go with my Harley Davidson Ford panel-van, but haven't had any luck yet.

Also, as far as I know, Revell used to make some Harleys in that scale way back when, but I've never come across any :(

Not sure about an Indian, but since Burt Munro's bike was heavily modified anyway, perhaps you could build it out of some of the aforementioned bikes... Should you be able to locate any, that is...

Munro's engine was highly modified. Any affordable engine in that scale will be stock and a nondescript lump. The wheels will not be visible, and the frame is not stock. Use O-rings for tires, laminated styrene discs for wheels, and a scratchbuilt engine and frame.

The MPC Monte Carlo has a Honda chopper in 1/25, the Mongram Cherry Bomb kit has a Chopper Harley, I think in 1/24. I just sold a Revell combo kit on E-Bay, which had Both a Harley chopper,and a Honda. in it in 1/25. Revell has a Triumph in 1/25.  A few years ago Revell  did a Ford truck with a Harley  Street bike, in 1/25. There are a few kits with Minibikes added to them as well.

Skulls are really seasonal, usually in the Months before Holloween. Is when they are most abundant. You could check those War Game places.

I found some 1/25 diecast Harleys at Wal-Mart a few years back. They were stock, and there were Knuckle and Pan Heads so a chopper shouldn't be too hard to do. They were cheap too.

Also someone is resin casting the old Ace / Indian 4 in resin. It's also stock but not cheap.

The Revell Harley Ford kit has a bike in it.  I haven't started the kit yet.

William the red minibike came from a Tom Daniels kit. It was the baja bandito or something along the lines of that. The Vandal kit included a Taco mini bike. Here's a "Show version" of the taco I built last year. Not the best but it was a re build.

www.thepartsbox.com used to do 1/25 skulls.  Probably still do.
