Overview

This is a very unique, one of 250 Indian Chiefs from 1948 painted in a prairie green color and delivered in 80-inch Bonneville trim.

This bike was found in a barn in the early 80’s. Check the barn picture provided. The bike changed hands twice since then and the current owner decided to make it a runner. Fortunately, he left it as barn fresh as possible. He purchased but did not apply, new fender trim, new exhausts, new green grips, and a new seat. He cleaned what he could, serviced the bike and called it ready. He had trouble starting the bike, so he added the electric start and a 12-volt battery. This bike is a great runner with a new title and an electric start. It is ready for the road!
