Indian Chief Vintage review

The word "vintage” gets tossed around a lot, but when a company with a history as long as Indian Motorcycles uses it, you can believe they mean it. Though the company has changed hands many times, the Chief model family, in one form or another, has usually been part of the Indian lineup since its inception in 1922. Indian Motorcycleskeeps that tradition alive with its Chief Vintage. The designers build upon almost 90 years of Chief tradition with this ride, and while all Indians show their historical roots in varying degrees, none is quite as overt as the aptly named Vintage.
 
At a glance, the Vintage looks like it was torn from a page in history. The full front fender, with its traditional figurehead, takes us all the way back to 1940 when Indian first started using their now-iconic, skirted fenders. Cast your eye down the top lines. Follow them down the fat fuel tank and across the saddle, and you will come away with the impression that there really could be a rigid rear end under all that sheet metal. It’s an illusion of course, but it adds to the suggestion of antiquity.

Indian makes a wide variety of accessories that can enhance this illusion significantly, and tipple into the "classic custom ” zone. The mini-apes, and the fishtail muffler tips available for the Stage-One exhaust system, but there are literally hundreds of accessories to choose from, so you can make a Chief Vintage that is "all you. More specs and user manual of Indian Chief you can see in next overview.
