1948 Indian Chief on 2040-motos
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.

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.
