This 1935 Indian Chief has just under went a 2 1/2 year complete frame off restoration. I have always believed that the 1935- 39 Indian Chiefs are some of the best looking motorcycles ever made. The 1935 year models were the first year of the streamlined fenders with the deep valance. This Chief features the optional V tank panels with a red and black two color paint design. This motorcycle runs and rides as good as it looks too. It has a 6 volt electrical system.
