The Indian Chief is a motorcycle that was built by the Hendee Manufacturing Company and the subsequent Indian Motorcycle Company from 1922 to the end of the company’s production in 1953, and again from 1999 to present.The Chief was Indian’s “big twin”, a larger, more powerful motorcycle than the more agile Scout used in competition and sport riding.

When Indian resumed civilian production after World War II, they revived only the Chief line. Production of Indian motorcycles ended with the last Chief made in 1953, then resumed again in 1999.

However this example of a Custom built Indian Chief represents the expression of the owner builder not the purist restorer …. This Circa 1948 with extensive work listed in the photos you see in the listing has only been ridden for under 100klms since it was finished.

Carefully and very well put together to achieve his vision …. its a big thumping beast of a bike and a quality build to boot.
Paint was not decided at the time of assembly so that can be the choice of the new owner.

Add this to your garage for 2024 and enjoy some loud open road rides with the crew.
