How often do you hear about a vehicle of any type being a barn find twice in it’s life? This beautiful 1947 Indian Chief comes along with a great story! It’s listed for sale here on eBay where it was listed for no reserve–but you’d better hurry as the auction is almost over!
Here’s where the bike was found for the second time. The first time was in 1989 when the bike was purchased from it’s presumed second owner. At that time, a full mechanical restoration was performed on the Indian, and then it’s new owner rode it for a grand total of 141 miles before being parked again in a barn in 1993.
Presumably this is original paint, although we don’t know for sure. I think it looks great, and would absolutely leave the bike alone cosmetically. As far as mechanically goes, there’s a great video here of it running!
