    Real sad news to hear. Our family has known Chuck for years, and I finally made it to visit his shop/home in 2011 before the Rhinebeck Meet. Great Guy and avid Indian Enthusiast till the end.
    Godspeed Chuck on your further adventures.

    My first basket case restoration was the '40 Chief I have now. Chuck Miles, and Indian Joe Martin were my gurus; and I know there are still a few parts on the '40 that I got from them all those years ago. Thanks Chuck, for helping to make this the best hobby in the world for me, and many others. My deepest condolenses to his family and friends.

    I will miss chuck myles way of thinking, when ever I thought of a different way to do something, I would run it by him and his answer way Indian Engenieers have already thought of that and it failed so that why they did it this way. and he was usually was right. He will deeply Missed by the Indian owner. Rest In Peace~~~~~~~~~~~Jim

    I'm really sorry to hear the news. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends. I never got to meet Chuck in person but have heard a lot about him over the years. Thanks for the reflection Jim, his way of thinking was right in my estimation.

    It is a pity to hear that news.

    Chuck was a very nice person as well as Indian enthusiast & legend.

    I was lucky to meet Chuck recently and spend some time with him as well as last summer when the attached picture was taken.

    The Indian rider on your barn and me say good bye to you Chuck!

    Chuck helped me a lot on my Indian books. He was one of a kind, and a great asset to the Indian movement.
