Description for luxury vehicle Indian Chief Vintage - The "SJ Special"


normal">  I am the proud owner of this very special Chief 'Vintage' and was an engineer with Indian Motorcycle Co. in Kings Mountain, NC responsible for the design of the Frame, Swingarm,
Exhaust, Foot Controls, Wheels, Brake System, Suspension, Highway Bar and Caliper Covers, among several other 'bits & pieces'.   

normal">  This example, referred to as the "SJ Special", has only 671 original miles and is arguably the rarest and most valuable Kings Mountain Indian Chief ever built.  No expense was spared in building this 'one of a kind' Chief that was specially ordered by the Chairman of Indian Motorcycle Company. 

normal">  This unique Chief features a non-standard 'War Bonnet' fuel tank, typically found on the Roadmaster & Deluxe models, plus every optional part & accessory offered in 2009 including a prototype Black & Tan leather
wrapped dash assembly and locking Hard Bags not available for retail sale. 

normal">  The "SJ Special" was built in January 2009 and immediately exported to London then Italy where it resided until I brought it home to North Carolina in February 2017.  Included is a signed copy of the "American-V" magazine showcasing the "SJ Special" on its cover along with a comprehensive 9-page road test.  Only 460 Indian Chiefs were produced in 2009...!



normal">  In all, only 1,134 Indian Chiefs were produced between 2009 to 2013 and they represent the lowest documented production in the history of Indian Motorcycle Company...!  2011 is the last year the Indian Chief was built
in Kings Mountain, NC before final production of MY12 & '13 Kings Mountain designed Indians transferred to Spirit Lake, IA.  

normal">  Our proprietary fuel injected Power Plus 105ci
(1,720cc) Engine has proven to be very powerful and dependable.  The sequential port closed loop fuel injection system was designed and calibrated in conjunction with Magneti Marelli, the Hydraulic 6-speed Overdrive Transmission with Baker, the Chassis and Exhaust system with Verlicchi, the front and rear brake systems with Brembo, 60-Spoke Wheels with Dayton Wire Wheel and Suspension with Fox (rear) and Paioli (front). 

normal">  I can't tell you how many times suppliers told us "that's not the way the other m/c OEM's do things".  Well, they were right... "we're Indian Motorcycle and we have higher standards" - we wanted perfection!  You will not see any 'Orange Peel' on our fuel tanks, center fairings or fenders.  Every Kings Mountain Indian was built from the very best
components and each example was hand assembled by two highly trained Master Artisans from bare
frame to completed motorcycle in two days...! 

normal">  The fit and finish of the Kings Mountain Indian Chief
is legendary and has yet to be duplicated by any major OEM due to the shear number of man hours that our
build process required...!


0in">  This numbers matching Chief is fully documented and in excellent running order with a clear North Carolina Title in my name.  I encourage you or your designate to inspect this beautiful machine in person.  Please e-mail or call with questions +1 704 860 9052  between the hours of 8 AM and 10 PM EST.


0in">  The buyer is responsible for all applicable shipping arrangements and expenses.  I will work with your preferred shipping company to ensure a hassle-free delivery.


0in">If you are a marketing firm, please respect that I do not need or desire
any assistance with selling this extraordinary vehicle.  Thank you in advance for not calling...
