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!

Started the day with a modified plywood mock up of the removable flitch plate to replace the crossbar

Then i found a length of 1.25" screwed rod in the railway yard and turned down a short length to use as slugs in the frame, to fut the plate in place

As i was doing that, a courier arrived with the blower, so i trial fitted it to see if it would go where i want it.... all fits in fine 8)
