This 1942 Indian Chief was part of a civilian collection of 1942 Indian Models. This Indian Chief was restored by a gentleman in North Dakota in the winter months in his farm machine shop. He completed a winter project every year. This bike has incredible detail and it is exactly reproduced. It has been in dry storage for 5 years and would need a good service to make it a road bike.
