Dennis O’s 1946 Indian Chief Complete and Delivered

It’s been a long process but Dennis O’s 1946 Indian Chief restoration was finally completed.  Dennis was thrilled and is happy to have the bike.  He has even already won some awards in some California bike shows.  Check out the older posts for the progression of this project.

 

Mike’s 1939 Knucklehead

This motor came from an original unrestored 1939 Knucklehead.  The customer wanted to keep the original patina on the motor.  We disassembled the motor, cleaned the inside, rebuilt all the internal parts, but left the outside in its original condition.  This will look very nice in his unrestored, original 1939.  Below is the start-up video.

Larry’s 1941 Knucklehead Restoration Update

We are restoring this for Larry.  The motor went through start-up already.  We installed the motor and transmission in the frame and are continuing the restoration process.

John’s 1953 Panhead motor Start-Up

This motor came to us a couple of years ago and the customer, who is from Alaska, wanted to rebuild just the lower-end.  After completing the lower-end, the customer took it home and installed the heads.  Several years later, after completing the motor, he called to request that we do a motor start-up on our motor run stand.  He was happy that it went well.
