1948 Indian Chief Motorcycle Comes Back To Life After 40 Years Of Sitting


No matter how young you are, at some point you have muttered the old saying, “they don’t make them like they used to” and after watching this video we are pretty sure that you will be repeating those words or at least hear somebody repeat them after watching this vides.

This is a shop called Kiwi Motorcycles Riverside California and in today’s video they kick start a real legend back to life and we mean literally.

After sitting still for 40 years this legendary Indian Chief 1948 bike starts at the first kick and then shudders its way back to life until its warm enough to start idling with a perfect V rhythm.

Can you imagine any of the bikes being build today getting started after 40 years of waiting for a kick?
Neither can we, so we are back to the same sentence from the beginning, they don’t make them like they used to.

Watch this historic bike come to life and admit it, after the video you want one too, don’t you?
