Nice bike. I remember the good old days when a 500 was a big bike. And a Kawasaki 900 was a widow maker. Now people think a 250 is a moped...

Back when frames were made of bendy straws lashed together by rubberbands.

It was 1992 when my brother and I took off on a one week camping trip across Washington State to Montana.
Shortly before leaving, we found my brother's 1948 Indian Chief through a collector I knew. The bike had not been used in many, many years.
The last we heard it was used as a parade bike in the 1970's. It needed cleaning, de-greasing, tank-sealing, generator work, wheel work, cables and various repairs to get it running and road worthy. The good news was that we discovered the motor had been rebuilt to like new, including the transmission and clutch.
We located documentation that proved it was built by the reputable Sammy Pierce - before the days of reproduction parts.
So, all the parts used in the rebuild were original Indian!

My 1960 Panhead was not all stock and original when purchased, but it ran really well. I eventually restored the wheels, engine top-end, and did the paint job before this ride.
Other than a minor carburetor problem on the Chief that was fixed on the roadside, the bikes were rock solid. We cruised around 55-60 mph, toured Mount St Helens, camped near Mt. Rainier, climbed the mountain to Eastern Washington and the Okanogans to Kalispell Montana and back.

The North Cascades Hyw, one of my favorites.




Mount St Helens, 12 years after the eruption and it looked like it only happened a month ago.




Creme of the crop Langlitz leather jacket... it weighs 20 lbs and creaks when you move in it!








Wow, I look as Gay as the color I painted this thing! It was my most modern bike for about 10 years.




Eastern Washington, so very different than the Western part of the state, and thats what I love about it!




We only recently threw out those old Chase Harper bags... unbelievable.








Dry Falls, Washington.


My brother and I need to repeat this ride.
After all we both still own the bikes
