Indian Larry Desmedt (April 28, 1949 - August 30, 2004) was a noted bike builder, stuntman, and innovator in the world of custom motorcycles. Indian Larry was born Larry Desmedt in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York. He became interested in motorcycles at an early age, and became a fan of artist Kenny Howard (aka Von Dutch). He later moved to California to apprentice under legendary hot rod builder and pop artist Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. Desmedt was convicted of bank robbery and struggled with substance dependence in his youth. He decided to leave his tumultuous early life behind and focus on his bike building talents. Desmedt founded the Gasoline Alley custom motorcycle shop in New York City in 1991.
