A tale of two Chouts

The Ultimate Indian Motocycle Hybrid, the marriage of a vintage Scout frame with a Chief engine!

The Alchemist

The essence of motocycle, picture a rigid framed vintage roadracer, leaf sprung fork, single pan saddle, hand gearchange, foot clutch, left hand throttle and the biggest production Indian engine of the time shoehorned into the best handling Indian frame of All time! A true hotrod, the looks of a stripped down wall bike on steroids!

first trial fit ......of many!

finally got a chance to trial fit the 1933 chief engine into the 1929 101 Scout frame, now to decide whether to cut slug and drop the lower frame rails or remove the crossbar and re brace the frame then use junior Scout tanks ???picture taken with my phone but it shows the issues raised in trying to fit a 1200cc Chief motor into a frame designed for a 600cc Scout motor
