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!

Bit of a change of direction with the frame

After a chat with Richi at Foss Fab, a decision was made to modify the cross tube once more, Richi sweated the front casting off the twin downtubes .. the plan is to move it upwards and turn it upside down, with the crossbar socket drilled out the new crossbar can be swept up in a curve to meet the rear socket on the seatpost casting .. which will be trimmed back to suit. The front casting will be set at the right height to pick up the lower tank mounts
