Indian is a U.S. brand of Motorcycles headquartered in Massachusetts from 1901-1953. The Scout and the Chief models were Indians two biggest sellers. After bankruptcy in 1953, decades went by before Polaris Industries purchased Indian Motorcycles in 2011. In 1940, all Indian Chief models were fitted with large skirted fenders which eventually became the Indian trademark. The new frame was superior to rival Harley-Davidsons unsprung rear end. All 40s Chiefs were comfortable and capable of more than 100 mph rides when tuned. MotoeXotica has acquired an inter-war era Indian Chief bike.
