Indian Factory Chief Sidecar 1946 thru 1953. I have had the
privilege of owning numerous vintage motorcycles with and without
sidecars. If you have never owned a sidecar and you happen to be an
owner of an Indian Chief 1946 thru 1953 this may be a rare
opportunity to unite your bike with a piece of Automotive History.
John Louis show contact info I have been an enthusiast of Indian
Motorcycles for decades. My family is from Springfield Mass so I
suppose that it is simply in my DNA. I can assure you that while
Harleys and Excelsiors are desirable, it is the Chiefs and the 4
Cylinder models which attract most of the attention and command the
highest prices. As the decades pass it has become increasingly more
difficult to find unrestored pieces. This sidecar is such an
example. There are no reproduced parts, fender, wheels, tub etc on
it. Especially the floors and all of the Factory welds. Frankly I
have never owned another Indian Sidecar with its original
unmolested belly pan. This is a rare find because the water sits in
the bottom of the tub and rots them out 99 times out of 100! Please
call or text show contact info This is a totally complete set up
with its entire brake and suspension systems. It is fit with its
matching original Cadmium plated wheels pressed with new wheel
bearings by Greers Engineering. The wheels are wrapped with NOS
Avon tires which have never seen the pavement. Avons were only used
by the Factory Post War 1946 and 47 so it is nearly impossible to
find a pair of new ones. The sidecar has a correct spare wheel set
up as well as an original taillight and fender light. All the
mounting braces and knuckles necessary to mount the rig to your
Chief are provided with the sale. The interior is faithful to what
you would have expected from the Factory in 1946. The tub is fit
with original front and rear vinyl mats which run the full length
of the floors. Also present is its proper passenger foot rest.
