Old '73 Indian D22T

Well this thing is rough, but it was given to me for free. There are no brakes at all, I filled the master cylinder to no avail. Right now I'm just trying to move it a short distance. Last time It was driven it worked fine, but I backed out of where it was, right up to a tree (didn't hit it but can't go any further). It definitely works in reverse, but in any forward gear it revs and strains (sometimes dies) and it definitely inchest forward a bit, but no significant movement, no spinning tires.

Right now I am in a pinch for a roof over my head of any kind, but if I can't figure this out, I can sell it. No paperwork, the engine has some backfires but runs, seemingly strong (just sat a long time, likely sticky lifters). It has a generator and everyting else in it, but the drawers and upholstery is gone, as well as the roof (leaks bad and not stucturally sound).

My friend's best idea is maybe a come a long, in case it's just locked brake shoes, just pull it forward a bit. see if I can get them unlocked. I might try that, but past that I'm outta ideas. No lug wrench or socket big enough for this and I'd be scared shitless to jack it up, though there is a bottle jack in it migth be up to the task.

In any case, IN WA. if anyone is into a parts rig, wouldn't break my hear to make a couple hundred towards a trailer I can live in, in the event I can't get it moving.
