This Indian Chief was restored in 1998 by Steve Johnston, a mainstay in the Indian motorcycle restoration community on the east coast for many years. It has received an AMCA Senior in 2000 at the Jefferson meet and has had multiple Winners Circle appearances since. This fine ride has settled in with 9,400 miles post restoration. Many of these miles were accumulated riding to AMCA events. The bike has a few road scuffs which would need attention if presented for another judging. (The scuffs are being attended to and should be non-existent by the middle of January). The judging sheets and trophies will accompany the bike to the new owner. The motorcycle is correctly appointed with accessories of the day.
