Hey Mo,

 

I just cannot understand why someone would think by taking parts of an Indian and mix matching them on another brand could still expect to call the bike a chief!

That simple. Maybe I am too conservative. Its like a bad momma joke.

I got no problem with Drifters. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

 

If you are riding a Drifter, that tells me that:

(a) you like the Indian styling, and probably like Indians. therefore you are a kindred spirit

(b ) you may not be able to afford an Indian. We've all been there, for sure, at one time or another.

(c ) the reliability issues may scare you. (Although some of the early Drifters had issues of their own.)

 

Valid arguments, all.

so true Mark,,, not everyone can afford a Indian,,, sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do

ya ride what ya ride,,,,so ,,, ride it

It was supposed to be black and CREAM... but the painters "misunderstood".
