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!

Odd jobs

Keeping busy waiting for parts  I have on order, I pulled the drive pulley from the 1940 motor and removed the two outer races and spacer, which will need either turned down to 0.25" thickness or replaced with a 0.25" one so I can fit the driveside oil seal conversion. That'll let me have a semi open belt primary without oil leaks from the crankcases.

  1. That would be intresting to have a look at that sealing, I hope you post pictures, I've been looking for a solution a long time!
