I (Buzz Kanter) have owned this bike for something like 25 years. I used to ride the wheels off this old Indian Chief, but then parked it about 10 years ago when I ran out of garage space.
A few weeks ago I pulled it out of storage and got it running. In fact I rode it to work today at the American Iron Magazine offices (see above). I plan to ride it to Sturgis in a few weeks to celebraste Indian motorcycle’s role in the founding of the Black Hills Motor Classic – otherwise know as the Sturgis Rally.
THE RIDE TO STURGIS: We will ride from the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, IA three days on the road to Sturgis. This is a free ride open to riders of all makes, models and years, but we ask that riders of Indian motorcycles (old or new) ride up front.
We meet at the National Motorcycle Museum for a welcome dinner and tour of the museum on Thursday, July 30th.
We roll out from Anamosa, IA the next morning (July 31) and cover roughly 300 miles on back roads to Spencer, IA for overnight.
The next morning (August 1) we ride anouther roughly 300 back roads miles to Winner SD for an overnight.
Then, the last day (Sunday, August 2) we ride the rest of the way to Sturgis, SD and plan to end at the Indian dealer in Sturgis.
THE INDIAN MOTORCYCLE & CLASSIC AMERICAN IRON BLACK HILLS RALLY: Then there is more fun at The Buffalo Chip where we will hold our FREE Indian Motorcycle & Classic American Iron Black Hills Rally on Tuesday, August 4. Registration opens around 9 am and the event starts at noon. Field events (kickstart, slow race, balloon toss, plank ride, etc) and bike show. The all-brands American bike show is sponsored by Dennis Kirk. Open to all years of Indians (old and new) and pre-1984 American motorcycles.
