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 mods Plan C ref 5.5 revision F

I looked at the flat plate template this morning, cut out the shape in rough from a length of 8"x1/4" flat stock ... Picked it up and decided it had no place on a hotrod motocycle.....
Change of plan. Length of 7/8" tube in the lathe, squared off at both ends and cut back at 45 deg. Then i cut 2 end slugs with 3/8" dowels to fit into 1/2"x1" flat drops, which will be countersunk and bolted to the 1" slugs fitted to the frame.
