1947 Indian Chief - Bonneville Motor

This ad is for the 1947 Indian Chief-NOT the 1958 HD for the selling price!

The video taken 6/12/2016 reveals (2) items that are in place but not mounted!

  • Windshield - Aftermarket and not Buco - resting but not mounted
  • Front Fender Accessory lamp - NOS with original wire pigtail in NEW condition!


  • Matching Numbers
  • Engine VIN # includes BM for Bonneville motor - I will NOT be held accountable if it is not!

I have NOT pulled the heads to verify this & no plans to do at this time.

Per the history for engine numbers by Indian, t would be a 1300cc motor vs 1200cc

I "have not" pulled the heads to verify piston size/height/bore, troke, tc.

  • Carb is correct for the year as a M344 Linkert.
  • A partial restore is started.
  • DO NOT FAULT incorrect hardware! Current install is a mixture!
  • Magneto was sent off to Belanger's in Maine or "Mainely Magneto's" in January 2016. Replaced!
  • Mechanic who worked on this bike in January to May stated it was in running condition

I have done nothing to the bike and being sold AS IS!
