LOL

This is Beaut. He is lowered (both lowering link and shocks) and has heated grips. A few little fringes on the clutch and brake levers. And a silly (but necessary) unmatched backrest. Other than that, pretty much stock except for the US Air Force and Capt Marvel derby covers. I just think it's a wonderful bike and wanted to share. I don't think I will win by any means.

Kiwi 84" and 4-speed overdrive tranny (w/synchros!)
Electrical system changed to 12 V w/Podtronics regulator and LED headlight
New gas tanks (Iron Horse Corral)
Too many parts to list hand shaped and polished for chroming (most of which should not be chrome)
Otherwise it's pretty much stock - ignition, carb, brakes etc. just as they were back in the day - and work fine
My favorite memory was the first long trip I took, from Minneapolis to SD/Montana. My buddy had his brand new HD. Anytime we stopped for any reason, people swarmed around my bike asking questions while he stood looking unhappy. Adding insult to injury, as we were passing through the gorgeous curvy roads in the black hills, I missed no opportunity to fly around him, as the '47 cornered much better than his top-heavy HD (he did blow past me on every straightaway).

Absolutely gorgeous bike, I'm more than a little envious.

2018 Chieftain Limited. Love the little custom touches I’ve done the most as opposed to the high purchases. For example making the frame emblem pop, removing the reflectors custom flag mount and shrinking down the tail lights. Have also done kurakyn lights, bars and speakers. Exhaust is custom but I’m running open headers and had the mufflers re baffled. Also have a custom sissy bar not pictured with the Indian logo cut in
To it. Pictures don’t do the black pearl paint justice, so much multi colored flake it’s almost not black in certain lights

This is my Indian Roadmaster 2017 in the Icon Blue/Blue series... her name is Blue Destiny...

Basic Modifications include
Key locks for the leg lowers
Extended reach kickstand
Header pipe swapped from stock to an American Custom headless pipe
DynoJet EFI Tunder - Custom modification
Seat modified by Master Lugo after nearly 4 years in use

Favorite Aspect of Blue Destiny
Simply the capacity space. I packed enough clothes to easily do a three week trip from Southern NJ, to Austin TX, to Panama City Beach FL, to Orlando FL, and back home in Southern NJ. Over 3600 miles logged for the trip (and I did not count the miles I put this thing on the Amtrack). This gives me everything I need to take many cross-country trips (and international - thank you Ottowa Canada). One other thing to add is the adjustable power windshield... an awesome feature to stop rain impaing my face in a half-helmet. This is all about being able to go cross country!

This is my brand new 2021 Springfield, "Garnet." I just picked her up 4 days ago. I haven't made any changes. I have an oil cooler coming. I hadn't been on a motorcycle for 17 years, after selling my 1985 Harley Tour Glide Classic. I'd had a freak accident on it, wrapping my right arm around my back, resulting in big surgery and extensive Physical Therapy, but what actually got me to sell her was fixing up a house for my daughter. I needed the cash more than the Harley! I love the factory paint scheme on Miss Garnet. Hearing her Thunder Stroke engine fire up the first time was a real thrill, and it still is each time! The best thing about her is that my wife loves her too! Her dad had an Indian Chief when he returned from the Navy at the end of WWII. He's 93. We'll go down to see him on Father's Day on Miss Garnet.

We look forward to lots of day trips, probably not long distance touring.

My first big bike was an ex-police 1963 FL Duo-Glide that was really a beater when I got her, but was quite nice when I traded her on the Tour Glide after 7 years of riding and fixing up. Miss Garnet reminds me very much of Ms. Hawg the Panhead, but all new and perfect! She can't make me 22 again, but she sure brings back memories, and brings me joy today!


Meeting her for the first time!

The first time she went to work with me. Isn't our blue dumpster a beauty?

Most memorable moment with “Penny”?
Pulling her out of the garage today after 8 months of off and on work, grabbing a handful of throttle, and taking her on her shakedown run.

Flawless ride, flawless fun.

Here's my warpony, minus the leather tank guard I just got in... and some saddlebags that are in the mail, and a few more things that needed to be painted like that side cover between the cylinders, and I want to replace the footpegs... let's just be honest, we never really finish project builds, do we?
