    'Indian Larry' said killed at bike show


    CONCORD, N.C. -- A custom motorcycle builder known for his appearances on cable's Discovery Channel died Monday at a hospital of head injuries suffered during a stunt, officials said.

    "Indian Larry" fell off a motorcycle Saturday while performing before 8,000 people at an arena outside Charlotte. He was not wearing a helmet, the officials said.

    Indian Larry was standing on the moving bike when it began to wobble and went out of control, said Mike Downs, Cabarrus County deputy manager. His full name was not immediately known.

    "Indian Larry was a man with great skill and talent as a mechanic and metal sculptor," said Robert Freeman, chairman of the county board of commissioners. "He will be truly missed by his fans here in Cabarrus County and throughout the nation."

    Indian Larry, who appeared in movies and television shows, was featured on a Discovery Channel series in which motorcycle builders design and build bikes from scratch, then have them judged by motorcycle aficionados.

      No way,

      My father was considering purchasing a nice old style harley fro Larry.

      That is so sad to hear. He has performed that standing stunt many times at a lot of bike shows such a daytona and laconia, he is going to be greatly missed.

      Much like his hero and well respected man the late Big Daddy Roth.

          wow!!! I just saw him on Discovery a few weeks ago doing the standing stunt while riding down the highway on a show called "The Great Biker Buildoff". He was very talented.
