This stunning 2014 model Indian Chief Vintage Sidecar outfit is up for sale and in need of a new home... The combination is possibly unique in the UK (at least according to one of my more knowledgeable sidecarist friends!) or at least a bit of a rarity...! In addition, the bike is one of the first 1901 to have been manufactured under the new, Polaris owned, re-vamp of this iconic brand and the horn cover is etched with an inscription to that effect. 1901 was the year the original Indian Motorcycle Company started up and Polaris wanted to mark the date...As such, the bike is part of the history of the evolution of this famous marque.
The bike is a 2014 model Indian Chief Vintage in a stunning 'Indian Red' with a gold "war bonnet" on the tank and aged tan leather seat and saddlebags. The engine is the excellent and very reliable Thunderstroke 111 cubic inch unit (1811cc) mated to a smooth 6 speed box. She has done approx 13k miles, is in immaculate condition, runs beautifully and has a full service history from Krazy Horse in Bury St Edmunds.
The sidecar was made in the US by DMC. It is a replica of the “Indian Princess” of the 1940’s and 50’s. It has an upgraded swing arm and a spot/running light was added this year. It comes with electronic levelling to provide a smooth ride for the passenger. There is a large boot and the sidecar has its own disc brake and Hagon suspension.
Extras as follows; Vance & Hines mufflers with fishtail tips; gold War Bonnet tank badge; pillion seat & pegs, heated grips, white wall tyres, screen, rack, tonneau cover for the sidecar, TomTom charging point and USB charger.
It should be noted that the bike and sidecar can be separated and run as a two wheeler should you wish. The sidecar fittings can be left on the bike so the 'chair' can be re-fitted at any time.
It is a reluctant sell but I am not using it as much as I should. It is a great ride and a massive 'grin inducer'...She will be missed!
