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!

Odd Jobs

Cleaned up the old Yamaha tls hub and trued it up on the old crappy chrome 18" wheel that it came with... It will get built into a new rim once I have decided whether to run an 18",19" or 21" rim up front

All done while the paint dries

  1. Can't run a 21 on a chout can you? I would have thought it would need to be 18 / 19? Does a 21 fit the leaf springs?

  2. Yeah a 21 would fit in fine in fact it fills the space under the leaf nicely..
