And this is how the Indian Chief Vintage originally looked.

Markus Krasser from Styrian Motor Cycle has knotted a 2016 Indian Chief Vintage and made a handsome custom bike from it: the Top Mountain Indian Bagger.

The Indian VS.Vintage is hardly recognizable anymore. The engine and some applications identify the base of the Top Mountain Bagger as Indian. Fortunately, the trained car mechanic Markus Krasser used the brand name on the motorcycle. The motorcycle was built for Attila Schreiber, the owner of the Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum in Ötztal (Austria). The paintwork in particular, which comes from the Austrian company Airvolution, contains many museum details.

For example, an exhibition room can be seen below the seat. The museum and its emblem can be found on the plaques and the tank on the side. The tank itself is from a Victory Hammer. A Flying Merkel is depicted below the emblem. This motorcycle was built by the American manufacturer Merkel in the years 1911-1915.

Oversized front wheel should not be missing

Also very noticeable: the Indian jewelry on the swinging designed fenders. An oversized front wheel should of course not be missing on a custom excavator. The Top Mountain Indian Bagger opted for a 26-inch wheel. The two fenders, the side panels, the central exhaust and the air filter were specially manufactured by SMC.

Over the winter, the Top Mountain Indian excavator is among the museum exhibits. In summer, the custom bike is occasionally carried out by the owner, even if it is definitely not suitable and intended primarily for cornering.

The basic model: the Indian Chief Vintage

This is what the Indian Chief Vintage actually looks like.

In principle, the Indian Chief Vintage hardly differs from the Classic variant. The difference between the two models is the removable window, a pillion seat and leather bags, which are only available on the Vintage. Otherwise, the Vintage inspires with great seating comfort and excellent properties for longer tours. The editors have been able to convince themselves of this over the past two years. At the end of 2017, the Chief Vintage successfully completed the MOTORRAD endurance test and placed itself in a stable 22nd place in the endurance test ranking.
