    Default Bill's next project

    With the 38 Chief finished I started looking around for my next project. I didn't have to look far. Stuffed back in the corner of the garage sat this poor thing from a bygone age. This is the very first motorcycle I bought in 1978 at the tender age of 17. A 1947 Indian Chief chopper. Damn I was cool. lolz
    I've decided to revisit my misspent youth and restore the chopper.

    Hey Bill,Thats almost the same as my first Indian,a 1950 chief with a scout front end,4" extension and a 21"wheel laced to the scout drum and brake,same dog bone and high bar set up.The Aerodraulic forks were fully extended and welded solid so I put on the scout setup.Great handling bike.I often wonder if its still together somewhere.
    Have fun
    Tom

    As tfburke3 stated it's a Scout front end that someone did a nice job of extending. It needs to be rechromed. I got to look into what that entails. The frame has been raked and needs some work. The engine and trans will need a complete going over. I want to put hyd disc brakes on it too. Other than that I want it to be old school cool.
