OK, I'm wondering what is the correct seat height for the Indian Vintage? I have been to a number of Indian dealer websites and some say 26" and some say 29". Can someone post the correct seat height.

Thanks:D

Its not 29" . I haven't purchased mine yet,but test rode one and at 29in ( I am 5'7" ) I would be on my toes. And I'm not.
Tomorrow, I think may be the day to pull the trigger on a new Cheiftain

Per the owners manual, and they ought to know....26".

But here is another important consideration.
The nose of the seat, where it meets the gas tank, is narrow.
Visually, this is a very pleasing design because it flows with the lines of the gas tank. You can sit on the bike and look down and see the engine.
Functionally, a very pleasing design because your feet drop naturally from the floorboards to the ground without a wide seat stuffed between your thighs.

BTW- I absolutely love my Indian Vintage

It is 26" with the standard seat and the reduced reach seat comes in at 25" and 1" closer forward... Couple that with a set of 2" pull backs and if you have any reach issues, you will definitely be dialed in...:cool:
