Country: USA
Region: NY
Make: Indian
City: Brooklyn
Zip: 11234
Model: Chief
Year: 1947
Mileage: 4000 Miles
Color: Black
Condition: Used
Completely disassembled with new paint on frame and body parts. Engine and transmission were completely disassembled and rebuilt. No cost was spared and every bearing, bushing and worn part was replaced. Only original parts were used if available.
Some parts like front and rear fenders, seat and saddlebags were sourced from American craftsmen because good originals were not available. The wheel rims are original and have been re-chromed and respoked with Buchanan spokes. The engine, transmission, oil pump, generator, frame, distributor and gas tank are original.
This Indian Chief was restored to a dependable riding condition. After completion it was ridden 3000 miles, without any mechanical breakdowns. There was no back up vehicle or trailer along on the trip, just riding day after day at 60 miles per hour. Was a great trip with great comments from onlookers at every stop. The trip of a lifetime!
Recently replaced the battery and got it running. Still runs great. Original mileage is unknown, speedo mileage is not accurate. Has about 3500 to 4000 miles since restoration.
