    Hey, everyone!!! I FINALLY have some time to post more pics of the Indian Chief that were requested. I lost my Internet for a while, and I wasn't able to do anything. These pics were taked after I lost the motor, a 50cc in-frame mounted motor (it had the old kind of airfilter, the two-piece white one. There were 2 screws holding the base of the filter, and one of those came loose, and was sucked into the engine. The piston Karate-chopped it, and it actually busted a groove into the piston, ruining the engine. If you have the white air-filter,PLEASE check the inner 2 screws! If you have the black one with the 4 holes pointing down, you don't have to worry about screws getting sucked into the motor. I took the motor off the Indian, and I ride the Indian pedal-powered until I can get another motor.) Some people actually thought it was a real Indian motorcycle, and asked if I restored it, or if it was in original condition!! They were really surprised to hear it was really a bicycle!!! Here are the pics! Enjoy, and safe ridin'!!! :)
