The Indian Chief is a road machine in every detail, featuring an all-new chassis design and swingarm configuration delivering 60 percent more rigidity while reducing overall weight by 14 percent. This robust chassis features a reinforced, large diameter backbone and all-new KW rising rate, single-shock rear suspension with adjustable preload. Confidence inspiring handling and a full inch more rear travel combine to provide a comfortable ride in many different road conditions.
This Indian is finished in dark red with off white contrast and is said to be in excellent condition, having covered a mere 2104 miles from new.
The red leather cafe style seat is a hand-made custom unit as are the green concave number boards on either side of the bike. The wiring harness was simplified to run the basics for street legality.
This Indian runs the OEM speedo up front, mounted it using a custom fabricated aluminium bracket that was built to house the speedo, trip reset dial and the original key and ignition switch.
The stock battery was replaced with a much smaller lighter battery from Antigravity and the standard exhaust was ditched and Wolf Moto built our own 316 grade Stainless Steel 2 into 2 exhaust system. Tyres were replaced with two new Bridgestone spitfire 2 tyres and Hella bar end indicators were installed replacing the 4 stock flashers and the original clip-on bars were retained however they were shortened for a neater front end.
The original carb set was upgraded to a new Del Orto PHF 36 DS/DD carb set and the badging on the tank are original Moto Guzzi badges imported from Italy.
