  • Hello from Northern Illinois

    Greetings all. I've been an AMCA member for 3 or 4 years. I have owned shovelheads for over 40 years and this last summer, I had the pleasure of riding a 48 Indian Chief, that belongs to a friend, in the Cross Country Chase. I am now the proud owner of a 46 Chief. Something about those Chiefs just gets to ya, I guess. So after all these years on Harleys, it's time for this old dog to learn something new.
    Now, how do I post photos

    Welcome aboard Fred. I was forced to join (ha-ha) many years ago at the Fort Mott meet here in NJ, in order to vend. There are many good people here and lots of good advice. If it is left hand throttle that takes a little time to get used to. I always thought the clutch to be much easier than on a Harley because it is more like those found on a car. I know you will enjoy your Chief as well as the club.

            Sammy Pierce would say something like... one more Indian on the road means one fewer Harley out there. Now that you're here on the reservation, it's more fun on this side, (ha,ha). Welcome.
            ... just be prepared to learn a new language.

                This is the Chief I rode in the chase
                It was an endurance run from Sault Ste Marie Michigan to Key West Florida for bikes made between 1930 and 1948
