    My Antique Motorcycle Mentor just verified that the original condition Chief was a bike he once owned. He has a full service Indian restoration shop and plans to mention it here and on AdvRider. He gave me permission to post a photo of his pre-war Indian, which he restored.
    Cheers!

    Whereas that's lovely to look at, it can't hold a candle to the original one.... :brow

    Assembling a newly painted bike was the hardest part or rebuilding my chief. Use lots of blue tape.

    The build was inspired by "Speedy Burner" and Jerry Turner's Indian bobber. Both with Jr Scout Tanks.

    Nice looking bobber Kalle. I like the Scout tank look. this is going to be my next project. The Chief chopper. This is the first motorcycle I bought in 1978. I'm going to relive my misspent youth by putting it back on the road.
