Overview

This 1947 Indian Chief has been in possession of the current owner since 2006. It was purchased from a contractor in Lake Matthews CA which is a few miles from Bob Stark’s compound in Perris California. The motorcycle was moved from there to be restored by Bob Stark. It has less than 2,000 miles on a new engine.

This motorcycle runs great and has been lightly used by the current owner because of health issues. It’s time to move the bike to a new aficionado. This beautiful motorcycle has been stored indoors its entire life and has been pampered and well cared for.

Some historical paperwork and a trophy will accompany the bike to the new owner.
