1947 Indian Chief

This 1947 Indian Chief Motorcycle is newly restored with 35 miles on the rebuilt drivetrain. This bike was obtained as a rolling basket in 2001. The new owner took the project on as a retirement project and did it right. This motorcycle was completed in 2006 and has been a garage queen under a cover since then because of the builder/owner’s health.

The engine and power plant were completed by Dan Reese in central California. Dan is a well-known Indian Motorcycle builder who completes projects correctly. The engine has been rotated through every 3 months or so and is ready to be reintroduced to the road and correctly broken in. This restored Indian Chief is licensed and ready for the road and for show.
