This is a famous custom build of an Indian motorcycle using a 101 Scout frame and a Chief engine. This motorcycle was built by the famous Roy Burke back in the 90’s and sold to the current owner then. True to Roy Burke’s style, this motorcycle is fast and quick and enjoys some of the Japanese parts available at the time of build.

Mileage since the build is unknown but less than 3,000. The bike has been in storage in San Diego for the past 25 years and ridden very lightly. This Indian Chout was just tuned by Johnny Eagles and it is road worthy.
