Joe, that was the top end going back together, valve job and a rehoming of the cylinders and rebuilding the carb.Ron H, you did a wonderful job on your bike this obviously is not your first restoration. I just bought a 48 Chief in that same color and was wondering if that color is called Checkerboard blue? Just for information I also have a red 1941 Indian Four and a red 1947 Knucklehead. I do some of my own work but my skill set is nothing near yours. It would be interesting to see some pictures of it pre restoration.
There is a thread here from my 48 restoration from the basket case to the finished bike. I will find the thread and share the link here.
