I am trying to decide which way to go on my '46 Chief build.  I built a '48 years ago but it turned out a little too flashy, I am going very conservative on this build.

This is my old 1948 Chief that I build when I lived in Vallejo.  I bought it from Jim Troche who is an Indian motorcycle legend in the Bay Area.  I never rode it too much because it was too nice !

This is one of my favorite Chief builds, it is a '46 that was built by Toney Watson.  I really like the black 18" wheels, dark blue paint and the no-frills look of the whole bike.  This probably the way I will go...unless I bob it.  There was this bobber that John Donavon built that has hung on my shop wall for years ???
