A Bit Rough
Chout Frame Compared To Original 101 Scout Frame
It Looks Like An Original Chief Casting Grafted Onto Scout Frame
Frame Is Modified To Accept Junior Scout Tanks
I saw an add on Craigslist for a 1935 Indian frame so naturally I checked it out. After some driving, speculating and haggling my son and I hauled it home. As you can see in the first picture some genius with an arc welder went crazy adding brackets all over the place. I almost walked away from it when I saw because it was so ugly. however, a few hours with my grinder and it looks pretty nice. this frame was altered to accept a Chief engine and some later point is when the other mess was added. the original job is pretty nice, it looks like a Chief rear frame casting was grafted in so the kicker should line up fine. a pretty good idea. The holes in the frame were cased by the welds not from being rusted out.
I am not sure what i am going this frame, I may sell it.
Below are some nice chouts that have been put together over the years including the Max bubeck Chout that did 135 mph.
Not a Chout, But Cool Anyway
