  1. Vintage arm rests

    Indian Chief Vintage
    would it be possible to modify the indian brand armrests to fit my indian brand backrest on my ‘15 Vintage Chief? The dealership wanted to sell me the trunk but it is already overpriced (plus the whole spool issue) just buying the armrests and pads is like $500. My wife wants the cup holder...

  4. Do you think chopper and real bobbers will ever be a "thing" with PI Indians?

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I always look for things I don't need and cannot afford. Lately my flavor has been modern, vintage style, choppers and bobbers. Very old school cool but reliable... That said, there are little-to-no Polaris-era Indian choppers and bobbers, especially on the 111 Platform - mostly on the...

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    My Daughter sent me this. The photo is credited as an Indian lawn mower. At first thought it was a photo shop job, but it does exist, just wasn't made by Indian. Someone spent a lot of time on it and it looks cool, so thought I'd share it.

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    My wife and I have been going to the NYC Motorcycle show since the first "Great American Motorcycle Show" happened in the 1980s.

  17. Thuderstroke 111 Carb conversion

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Has anyone made an intake manifold to put a carb on the 111 engine? I am also thinking that some sort of wire harness would be needed to run the brain for the ignition as well? I am seriously looking at putting one of these engines in a custom build and I am thinking I do not want to have to...
