    alternative to saddle bags?

    I rode 100 miles on the Indian yesterday. My son rode with me. He was my mule, carrying all my "stuff" in his bags. How does everyone carry tools, covers and raingear on their Indians? I don't...

    Back rest for 1947 Indian Chief

    I finally am riding my 1947 Chief and would like better seating for a passenger including a backrest/sissy bar. Any ideas?

    Good advice! Just curious - Why is starting in front of a crowd after coming out of a restaurant the biggest concern?

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Most reflect my feelings. The last time I rode out west (in 1992 to South Dakota from Indiana) We camped right beside the bike except for one night in a motel...
  11. How to guard against theft when riding, parking to eat or visiting an attraction.

    I plan to ride my 47 Indian a lot this summer (after 26 years). I will admit to being a little paranoid about the motorcycle thieves. I have it insured for theft, but I don't want it to happen. I...

    Add turn signals

    Has anyone added turn signals to their chief? I would really feel safer if I had them. I have done some searching and haven't found a complete solution.

    Hi Tom. I thought I would need different coil made for 12 volt primary if I changed the battery to 12 volt. The other choice would be to add a resistor in series with the 6 volt coil.

    Hi Steve. I found Cycle Electric Inc. located in Brookville, Ohio. They do have generators for Indians. I wonder if this is the source for Jerry Greer's Engineering generator?

    Thanks Harry. I looked at the video of him with Jay Leno, and I looked through his website. Didn't see any mention of motorcycle products. It did state that most conversions were under $1000. ...

    Hi. Just found this thread after I posted questions about converting. Are you changing to a 12 volt alternator or generator? Where did you buy it? What resistor did you use and how is it working?...
  18. Generator - 6 or 12 volt. Rebuild or buy new?

    I finally have my 1947 Chief running and on the road (metaphor for riding around the neighborhood.) My last 1500 mile trip from Indiana to South Dakota in 1992 involved turning the headlight on and...

    Do you mean a support in the middle of the run to lessen the vibration on the fittings?

    I finally got my Indian running. I looked in the tank with a borescope and confirmed the oil was being returned. Here is a photo of the copper lines. It seems to miss everything and flows oil.23364

    Thanks. It was a fun first ride (in 26 years). Now to work on the brakes and that nasty reoccurring carburetor float bowl overflow.
