THIS 100th Anniversary Indian Chief, also referred to as Chief Rolling Thunder by its current owners, John and Krystal, who gave it a new home Down Under from the USA, encapsulates all that Indian Motorcycles stands for — freedom of spirit, freedom to explore the open roads, and to blaze your own trail!
Iconic styling, and a heritage to match, it incorporates the distinct characteristics born from all the previous Chiefs that proceeded it in their proud history. With the Chief in full war bonnet lighting the way from the front of the valanced guard, the rake of the forks, the tear drop headlight between its broad shoulders, wide western handlebars, the tank with its unmistakable branding, down to the low slung, studded saddle, and bags, it truly is an Iron Horse! Fit for any Chief to ride.
Hand assembled in 2001 in the Gilroy factory, California, it now roams Queensland and beyond.
Previously owned by famous grid-iron quarter-back for the Denver Colorado Broncos and Hall of Fame inductee, John Elway, it arrived with just 1500 miles on the clock. It is powered by an 88 cubic inch carburetted, heartbeat, with five-speed feet.
