1932 Indian Chief Motorcycle - Barn Find - 74 cu in - 1200cc

(This bike can be delivered to Oley, Pennsylvania amca national meet)

The 1932 Indian Chief is a one-of-a-kind, very desirable and collectible Indian.  It was the first year for a lot of new Indian features and quite a few of them it was the only year.  There is a lot of one-year-only parts to a 1932 Indian Chief.  It would almost be a shame to restore this bike, it would be hard to fake this patina!  And almost impossible to duplicate this paint work.  This is truly a barn find. 

We’ve had this motorcycle a long time, sitting in one of our dealership warehouses.  It still has the original 1932 exhaust system on it.  Also has a rare 30’s period messenger buddy seat.  It has footboard extensions like I’ve never seen before and a period 1930’s horn.  I’ve seen several pictures of 30’s Indians with this exact horn on.  We put tires on this in the late 70’s or early 80’s so we could move it around, they’re 70’s style tires.We haven’t had it running for a long time, the magneto needs redone, no spark.  The motor is free and turns over.  This is not original paint, I’d say it was painted sometime in the late 30’s, possibly early 40’s.    

Almost all the parts are correct 1932 parts, although some are missing.  I love the 48 star US flag decals that are on the bike at various locations.  This bike is not a rust bucket, the old paint is really neat.  It has the correct wheels, sheet metal, brakes, transmission, primary, shifter, handlebars, chain guard, footboards, etc.  Almost everything looks in really nice condition.  It has a linkert M6 carburetor on it.  It still has the leather covers on the throttle and spark cables.  It has a 1936 type ignition switch in it and an old SW amp meter.  The worst things I see on it, the front cylinder looks like it has an old repair at the flange base and this 1932 is in a 1936 frame.  So it is not matching numbers, the title matches the motor number.
