#12 Mark Hill
1940 Indian Four
Mark Hill of 4th Coast Fours, Waddington, New York
In 2010, I was a mechanic for Frank Westfall and his 1915 Henderson and Jim Dennie and his 1915 Militaire, and I have been involved in every Cannonball since then. At the time, I worked for the State University of New York at Canton in the Powersports program. Through the Cannonball, I became good friends with Lonnie Isam Jr. and I helped a lot with the organization of the second Cannoball. I have had the privilege to ride in three Cannonballs and to provide support to other riders in the other two. I have had the good fortune to have perfect miles in all three events I have ridden. Our shop specializes in American made four cylinder motorcycles–Henderson, ACE, Cleveland, and Indian. 2016 was my favorite Cannonball, as Wolf Pack Hendersons swept the top three, and four of the top five positions. No other shop or group of builders has ever come close to this. My favorite motorcycles are the Detroit Hendersons built from 1912-1917. A Detroit Henderson in open space is a formidable Cannonball weapon. With the right course and the right riders, they are unbeatable. In the 2019 Chase, I will ride my 1940 Indian Four.
