1947 Indian Chief with Matching Numbers and a full mechanical restoration. I went out of my way not to have it look like a trailer queen. The paint came out better than I wanted it to but I think with some road sand, gas, battery acid and neglect it will start to look better.
It has most of the original parts that were on it and anything missing I tried to get good original replacements. The tanks, fenders and chain guard are all original. I am not sure about the toolbox but I know the belt guard is a reproduction. It has mostly original hardware I.E. nuts, bolts, washers, etc.
The mechanical restoration included wheel, shock and brake rebuilds. The front end was also rebuilt with new bushings and neck bearings. In general all the parts on this bike were rebuilt, reconditioned or replaced.
The Engine has been rebuilt and is now .040 over. The trans was reconditioned with original gears that were all in nice shape as was the primary drive. This bike has about 25 or 30 break in miles on it currently. Difficult to break in a new motor and trans in my area at low speeds without getting run over.
Runs like a new bike.
