FEATURE VIDEO: 1938 Indian Chief
This two-wheeled heirloom has stayed within the Byers family since 1940, ever since the day it was purchased from a dealer in Rockford, Illinois. When its original owner, Henry, lost interest in it sometime during the ’50s, it was relegated to a far corner of the garage and left to languish away. After seeing it for year after year, his brother, Irv, and his young motorcycle-loving son, Al, decided enough was enough and asked Henry for permission to undertake the restoration process. The father-son duo hit the ground running, getting the vintage Indian back into its original condition. It now wears its factory Navajo Blue and Apache Grey two-tone paint scheme – a one year only option. Watch the video to see this machine action, as well as hear Irv detail the multi-year restoration process.
