My '48 Chief
Indian Moto-Cycles are like an addiction, if you ever own one you can't leave them alone. I have had a half dozen of them and there is just something that I love about them. They aren't real fast, they aren't exactly modern, but at the same time there is something visceral about them that I can't shake.
I put everything I had into building the blue Chief in the pictures. There are a few bikes I really ever really regretted selling and one was this Chief and the other was the Vincent Comet. I guess there was an orange Panhead that ran like a top !
I am in the process of selling all my British bikes and getting back into American made motorcycles. Yes, I will buy another Vincent given the chance. But, from my roots I have always loved old Harley Davidsons and Indians and plan to have more. The good Lord willing that is !
