1941 Indian Chief Alive After 30 Years in Pieces - 1941 Barn Find Chief Build
for the complete build on this bike and the resurrection after being in
pieces for 30 years.
This Chief was taken apart around 1984 and sat in pieces for the last 30
years. The motor was built in 1986 and never run. Over 5 months, Indian
John and I took everything else apart and put it back together. She
started in 2 kicks! The adrenaline rush was amazing after working for all
these months. It could not have been done with out the knowledge and
patience of John teaching me the finer points of Indian restoration - Thank
you, the knowledge and memories are priceless.
It looks like it was originally a Sammy Pierce bike with an AIMCO stamp on
the motor and it was bought in California around that timeframe.
Duane Sheridan rode the heck out of this bike. I'm trying to keep the
history alive. If you have any pictures of Duane or the bike, please email
them to me so his memory can live on.

World War II, the majority of those used in battle were Harley-Davidson
Wearing the requisite Olive Drab paint, these were 45-cubic-inch V-twins
fitted with special equipment for wartime use. Items such as an ammo box,
machine-gun scabbard, and rear carrier are obvious; less so are the special
"blackout lights" front and rear that projected only a small sliver of
light in an effort to avoid detection.
In all, roughly 80,000 WLAs were built, many being sold as surplus after

Best Barn Find of the Year '59 VW PU
This 1959 VW Truck was found near Walsenburg Colorado.
Phil, the old timer I got it from used to drive it daily to tend his
booths at a local flea market for more than twenty years, twenty years ago.
One big concern he had was a bullet hole in the drivers door. I assured
him it was nothing. It had no motor when I found it, but trans and gear
reduction axel were there and good. It was about a dozen different colors,
and had a half hearted start at body work. "No Rust!" I found a 35 horse,
"50k" miles motor in denver for $300, bolted it up and it started right up.
I sold it to a young girl from Denver. Hope she's got it looking good
Sorry for crap video, didn't know I would make a video when I shot this.
This is my first video, just want to see what can be done, and how to do
it. I have a lot to learn, thanks for your help, patience, and interest.
1955 Buick Special Barn Find
The storage for some old vehicles has been lost, the property was sold,
hence the barn must be cleared for the new owners. This '55 Buick was
sitting the corner, minus rear wheels and axle shafts, we saw the
differential gears were missing, hence the disassembled unit. The ceiling
was low in the barn, thus we used the car dolly, after jacking up the rear
end of the car carefully. With 1 tire completely flat (what a wrestling
act!) and the other one pretty low, the car was finally coaxed out of the
barn, into the light after umpteen years. Thanks to Josh showing up to do
his chores and helping us to safely get the car back up the road by helping
to secure the car tightly to the dolly, then using his Kubota tractor with
the flashing signals to ward off cars speeding up the road. It was quite
the setup we had pulling the car backwards, myself steering like an old
hook and ladder firetruck to help the car around curves and turns.
1940 HARLEY DAVIDSON MODEL 45 COLD START
This is a cold start of a 1940 Harley model 45. At first there wasn't
enough fuel to start it, but after putting some more fuel in it started
right up. It didn't run great, probably needed the filters cleaned and it
is 70 years old.
