Indian Chief description

If you are looking for a great driver Indian bid on this bike.  I bought this bike locally from the Nephew of the dealer that sold it new.  I have owned it for 30 years and drove it in parades.  In its life it has been all over the country and has a very interesting past.  It is running and shifts nice in all gears.  I have only put 600 miles on it in the last 20 years so it is time for someone else to enjoy it.  Call with questions 712 269 1047  after 4:00 central standard.  It is not restored it was freshened before I bought it.  There are imperfections in the paint and wear and tear.  The chain guard needs repaired from the kick starter and there is a small dent in the top of the tank.  Very presentable but not perfect.
 I do not have to sell it so the reserve is firm.  Others have sold for more and Mecum thought I could get that in Kansas City.

serial number 3485884 the motor is a late 47 motor which was not uncommon Thanks to ALL that know more than I do.  

On May-06-16 at 20:16:30 PDT, seller added the following information:

Included pictures of the original chummy seat with brackets and windshield with bar and brackets.  Windshield is cracked.  I have the bike for sale locally so if it sells I will have to remove it from auction.

Indian Announces Two-Tone Paint Schemes For 2015 Lineup

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0700

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, announced today in a sneak preview of its model year 2015 lineup that the new model year would also bring a return of the classic two-tone paint scheme the early Indians were known for. The much anticipated vintage paint palettes were on-display over the weekend for fans of classic motorcycles at Vintage Motorcycle Days 2014 in Lexington, Ohio. The iconic two-tone schemes will build on the overwhelmingly positive response to the current 2014 Chief range, known for its hi-torque Thunder Stroke 111 motor and precise handling, thanks to Indian Motorcycle’s sand-cast aluminum frame technology.
