This is a 1942 WLA military bike that we are restoring for a customer. It is currently in progress.
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.
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.
This customer is from Pennsylvania and brought us this motor that had supposedly just been rebuilt, but he was leery so he wanted us to take it apart and check it out. We found many issues with the motor so we completely rebuilt the motor again. Below is the start-up video.
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.
This is a complete motor rebuild. It has been balanced and blueprinted. The customer was very pleased with the rebuild.
