    Has anyone else been seeing a lot of scratching of their challenger? I have a blue limited and it is scratching every where.

  4. Corbin touring seat issue

    Indian Scout
    Just wanted to let anyone with a Corbin touring seat or a Corbin seat in general know to put some loctite on the rear attachment bracket bolts.

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I want to hand-paint the round Indian seal on each side of the front of my Chief’s frame — the one that’s cast into the frame. I have a good steady hand and will use at least two colors, probably gold and red, on the raised and recessed areas. What kind of paint (and sealer?) would be best?
