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!

I picked up a modified '30s chief bar centre during the gathering stages of the project, it had solid round bar stubs welded either side ( slightly squint!!!) to take risers and aftermarket bars.
Today i set it up in the lathe turned down the stubs to the same diameter as the inside of a set of old Triumph 1" western pattern bars that i got from Tony with the 101 frame.

A couple of cuts later

And they are ready for welding
