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!

Frame crossbar

After having a long look and think about how best to replace the under tank crossbar, today i mocked up option two in Grizzy's sketch below

The steel version will extend 3" forward and pick up a fixing from the web of the front headstock casting, a fourth fixing will drop vertically from just in front of the seat hinge mount and pick up the headsteady

This will give 1.5" of clearance between the tanks to let me move the oil line fittings in there and aid cooling!
