This 1947 Indian Chief Roadmaster is a very Original Bike!! An amazing, well preserved piece of History!! This is an older restoration, part of the “Jack the Bear” Coonorod Collection. The collection was sold at Mecum Auctions Las Vegas in 2017. This spectacular distinctive riding outfit is a marriage of the Roadmaster model Indian Chief motorcycle and the Goulding Chrome nose sidecar. The Roadmaster was the most comfortable and best equipped touring motorcycle in the world in 1947. This iconic design of power and elegance has been resurrected and defines the look of an Indian today. This great bike has matching numbers.
