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.
