"26-inch custom front wheel matching rear. The air ride system allows the rider style and looks. Duel exhaust, Stage 2 Indian Pipes, custom tips, with the Indian cam system for the performance needed. Blended with the stretched bags, side body panels, and custom front fairing, this bike has been designed around the Ride Command system. Enjoy this Chieftain as much as we enjoyed building it.

"Our goal was to elevate the aspects of the Chieftain performance platform. Because this particular model was already well known for its handling and ergonomics, the challenge was exciting and interesting. Increasing power output with the Indian Motorcycle performance cams, intake and a handmade stainless exhaust was a key step. This, paired with aggressive styling, stunt-inspired bars and controls, bring the bike to an unprecedented level of comfort, ability & aesthetics."

Classic Elegance — Head Indian Motorcycle

"This beautiful bike evokes the feelings of days gone by, living up to its name 'Classic Elegance'. The mystic and golden brown paint scheme along with cream accents and rich leather creates a striking visual and almost tactile image. We didn’t forget the legendary chrome. With 17 factory accessories, 22 Indian engravings and emblems it’s impossible to confuse this bike's classic linage. Custom bags, tank and the striking 26-inch billet spoke wheel complete the transformation of this legendary bike."
