 Beautiful 1948 Indian Chief Motorcycle.   This bike began as a basket so it is not matching numbers or "original. "  It was built to ride and I regularly take it on modern thruways.   Motor is 80ci recently rebuilt (within 1. 00 miles) with KIWI cases and KIWI Bonneville cams.   Total mileage is estimated.   12 volt alternator electrics. new Iron horse tanks POR-15 sealed will NOT leak.   Also $80 Wilson Plank petcocks will NOT leak.   Paint is color matched to 1948 Indian red.   Full leather setup from Heather's Leathers includes matching Indian red piping and red jewels.   Chummee seat is in picture but solo seat is included also!  Foot board extensions for passenger.   Matching bake-lite shift knob and 1948 NY state license plate too.   New rear tire and too much chrome to list.   The windshield is a legit vintage Buco I had re-chromed.   It has points ignition and left hand throttle.   The muffler/header has a ceramic Jet Hot coating that will never blue.   There is probably more I forgot and will update listing later - like a set of improved oil pump gears.        Access to 40+ year experienced mechanic who built the bike included.   This is a truly majestic machine ready to ride.   It will part a sea of Harleys like Moses.   Riding it feels like going back in time - ride a piece of history.   I would be sad to see it go but I have another Indian and don't ride this enough.   If you are like me you always wanted an original Indian -  do yourself a favor and buy this one.   You could buy a basket or roller but after money and labor you will be at my price.   "Original" bikes are way more expensive and half as reliable.   I will post more pictures after the auction begins.   Shipping or pickup tol be arranged by the seller.   I could deliver within 150 miles of Niagara Falls NY for an extra fee.   Please contact seller with any questions.
