A tale of two Chouts

The Ultimate Indian Motocycle Hybrid, the marriage of a vintage Scout frame with a Chief engine!

The Alchemist

The essence of motocycle, picture a rigid framed vintage roadracer, leaf sprung fork, single pan saddle, hand gearchange, foot clutch, left hand throttle and the biggest production Indian engine of the time shoehorned into the best handling Indian frame of All time! A true hotrod, the looks of a stripped down wall bike on steroids!

Odd jobs 3

Keeping busy while I wait for parts, tonight I set to with the Dremel and started to do some work on the cylinder ports, there was quite a sharp lip where the bore for the valves meets the cast in port, I have roughed thes out this evening on bth cylinders, work ground (gettit? ;)) to a halt when I ran out of tools for my Dremel, a trip to the shop tomorrow and I can get the ports tidied up.

Valves are on their way, so I should be able to get the cam chest and cylinders all buttoned up real soon.
