1941 Indian Chief Alive After 30 Years in Pieces - 1941 Barn Find Chief Build
Check out http://www.caimag.com/forum/showthread.php?14152-1941-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. Enjoy!
