1947 Indian Chief WWII Pristine Condition
The overall condition of this machine is very nice, with the paint being done sometime in the late 80's or early 90's. As far as the motor, frame, etc., everything is nice but not perfect, so the rest of the bike could very well be mostly original. Everything from the frame to the motor to the fenders are correct, and as far as I can tell, just the way it came from the factory. The tires are in attractive condition but not new.The engine and transmission are original to each other and are in perfect running condition. The bike kicks over and starts very easily. A brand new battery was also just installed. The paint on the tank is in nice condition, as you can see in the photos. The seat pan is an original pan which has been recovered in a period correct covering. Overall, the chrome is in nice condition, and not in need of any type of work unless you want a perfect bike you’ll never ride. The Indian on the road is very easy to handle, and rides down the road tight, with no shakes, shimmies, or rattles.
