I saw this at the Lone Star Roundup last weekend.



The valve covers have "Chief Ambassador" engraved on them.

That is much nicer than a lot of the "customs" I've seen.

The Chief Ambassador is a nice touch.

I give it a  :thumb: :thumb:

Looks nice, and looks practical to ride with the footpeg setup, although the bars would be hard to hang on to in the wind.

He managed to get a Loop front wheel onto that Indian girder.   Lots of fabrication I'm sure but at least he's got a brake now instead of the fairy-pressing-a-dandelion-head-on-the-hub thing that came on the original Indians ...

Looks nearly identical to the one Bryan Fuller built:

That could explain why it says "Fuller" on the fender of the bike in the original pic! :)

Just glanced at the photo in the original post, didn't notice the "Fuller" at the time. Looks like he's modified it some since the first photos.

Engraving like that must cost a small fortune?
