Wonderful report. Your right about the comfort level on these old Indians, had to find a modern bike with this kind of comfort. Impressive adventure for an old bike, but they are tough!! Thankyou for sharing this story with us!!

Hvordan kom du på å kjøre en Indian dit.

Really interesting to see all pics. 3 years ago i rode my old VFR to Bodø and Finnsnes.
My waterpump bearing broke down in Finnsnes but i made it back to Bodø where a used "new" waited.

arcticIndain, congratulations on another excellent adventure on the Chief!
I like the sunglasses on the Indian head fender light, nice touch!
I it is riders and mechanics like you that inspire me to keep the faith and get my 53 Chief done right, so I can ride the wheels of it. I have no problem with a restored bike showing wear and tear, because it is being ridden and making the owner happy! We can't take the old bikes to our grave, so might as well enjoy them, and let the next generation restore it again!
