Stay Chiefed (Still available)


I went out to the apple country here in NY recently to buy a nice '69 FLH and the gentleman I purchased the bike from had this tucked away in the corner.  He is interested in selling the bike, and although I've always wanted an Indian, it's not in the cards for me right now. 

The owner is not an internet, cell phone, or - um - electricity type of guy, and after a nice conversation and the purchase of the FLH, he asked me if I'd help him sell his Indian.  I told him I would, so here it goes: 
  • '46 Indian Chief - motor, transmission and frame
  • '52 forks and tanks.
  • De-skirted rear fender and old ribbed front fender
  • Random solo seat
  • 16's front and rear
Hit me up with an email at arobinson0217 at with questions.

Road trip to Detroit for the Oily Souls, warm up post

Super lacking in the post department here (seems to all go on Instagram these days...) but here a bunch of random shots from the last little while from home and my trip to denver, Des Moines, Detroit, Ohio, Nebraska, and Salt Lake. Drove to Deteoit mainly for the Oily Souls show which was a blast!

There's tacos under there

Something for everyone at Kung Fu Tap and Taco. Been about 8 years since I last was here. Hadn't changed a bit. 

Made it to Greg's house in Plymouth, MI!! Dinner was waiting!

Greg's garage doesn't suck. 

Guess this is known as the "headstone of Detroit" 

Brad, terry, and Ry and the gang are awesome hosts! More on the show later. 

Drove past Davenport twice on the trip, days before the swap started...doh. 

Nice "short and curly" on the tub rail at the Holiday Inn Express in Lexington, Nebraska. Skipped the shower that night. 

5,300 miles like this by yourself in a '96 S-10 isn't recommended if you are 6' 3". Under all that crap behind the seat is a bike I picked up on the way back minus frontend and rear wheel...for the record my truck performed flawlessly. Ice cold AC, cruise control for when there wasn't construction (grrrrr), and got comfy with some audio books to kill time.
