    I have an extra motor, but I don't want to let it go just yet. Talk to Larry at All-Cast. He welded up my Indian 4 cases and cylinders. A top notch guy. He can do just about anything for you.

    I have a 26 Chief and I will give you the color code for the deeper darker red, if you need it. The color was a direct match to the color of the front fork tube where it attaches through the frame.
