All three words in the name of this bike exemplify the kind of machine this is. The Indian Chief Classic is as iconic a line to ever come out of the Indian Motorcycle brand.

Its design is simple in order to take advantage of its no-frills characteristics. Air-brushed pinstripes, a tear drop head lamp, a glass front fender light, a black and polished engine with chrome covers, a solo seat available in black leather, chrome-spoked wheels, traditional black wall tires, and the signature Indian script complete the custom quality paint on each and every Indian Motorcycle, including the Chief Classic.

The classic looks are a sight to behold and although the design is relatively light on details, the Indian Chief Classic more than makes up for in its performance. Thanks to a modern 105 cc Power Plus engine that comes with a full chrome package and a 2-into-1 stainless steel exhaust system, the Chef Classic is the kind of classic cruiser that holds more purpose and function than people think.
