Hey folks...new to the forum...thanks in advance for any wisdom you can shed on this topic. I am considering purchasing a 2000 Indian Chief Millenium edition. Gorgeous bike, love the 24.5 inch seat height (inseam challenged), and the looks are to die for...however, been reading some scary reviews online really tearing up the Indian Chief (the review do not specify the "millennium edition") - regulator issues, brake issues, windshield issues, floorboard scraping issues - but worse - rear shock fail/collapse and handlebar riser fail issues causing crash. I also tracked recalls online that hot on most of these complaints but again, only state Indian Chief and not specifically stating the "millennium edition" which I was under the impression only 250 were made.

So...I am hoping to get some REAL reviews from you folks on this bike. Is there a big difference between the 2000 Indian Chief and the Indian Chief Millenium edition? Any feedback on the bike itself and these "reports?"

I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks again.

Not that well versed in the difference between those models, but why not go for the GUSTO, buy a new one and not worry about those kind of problems. "JUST SAYING"
