Up for auction 1948 Indian Chief, ith matching numbers, round up restoration in 2013, ith a low reserve. I have owned this bike since May 1961, nd I rode it a lot in my younger years, hen it went into a shed, Then 2011, was retired and with the help of my friends Jon and Bear of "Bear's Hiway Classic's" in Kansas City, O we completely restored it. The engine was rebuilt, he front cylinder was sleeved, oth cylinders are .010 over. It has new crank pin and pinion pin, ew valve guides. It has original transmission with new bearings, riginal clutch and primary chain. Overall, would say the bike is 75% original. The seat was recovered by Heathers Leather. Sheet metal is original except for front fender, think it might be from Iron Horse Corral (?). And tool box. Frame, irder, ubs, ll powder coated, ew rims and stainless steel spokes, ew Firestone tires, ew bushings in girder. There are a couple of small dings in paint, o matter how careful you are in trying to put something together, ome little accident happens. I rode this bike home from the shop in December of 2013, t ran great, t was an approximately 25 mile ride, he speedometer wasn't working but has since been repaired, o the speedometer is showing only one mile, t hasn't been ridden since but has been started many times. You can go to "Bear's Hiway Classics" home page and scroll to where it says 'find us on Facebook' or you can go on Facebook "Bear's Hiway Classics" and see two videos and sixty plus restoration pictures of this bike in progress.
