Publisher's Description
Larry Desmedt (1949–2004), genius motorcycle builder/artist, daredevil extraordinaire and introspective philosopher, will forever be known as Indian Larry. He remains the motorcycle world’s most beloved figure, known equally for his wild antics, his gentleness and generosity, and the radical bikes that reflected his carnivalesque character. One of the originators of the hard-core-style custom chopper, he combined ingenious metalwork and inventive engineering in highly collectable chrome sculptures that have garnered worldwide respect and recognition. In Indian Larry renowned photographer Timothy White pays tribute to an intimate friend, a riding companion and his most compelling photographic subject ever.

• The most extensive and personal photographic record of the American legend, his life and his extraordinary motorcycles • Includes recollections by photographer Timothy White; master builder Paul Cox, Indian Larry’s trusted collaborator and best friend; celebrated builder Billy Lane, author of Billy Lane: Chop Fiction; and artist Matthew Barney, best known for his epic Cremaster Cycle exhibition organized by the Guggenheim Museum, New York
