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!

Transmission parts arrived

I am planning to use a mixture of parts (if possible) from various years of Chief production. I have in hand a complete early, helical clutch transmission and a 1940's case fitted with new bearings. today I recieved a parcel from India with new mainshaft, high gear, slider gear and cluster. I plan to build the 40's box with a later chain type primary clutch basket that I also have.

The Indian made parts look to be of good quality, I will report my findings as I go!
