Dark Horse Chieftan - Indian Called My Bluff


Recommended Posts

I said I would upgrade from 2010 Red Dark Horse when they came out with a Dark Horse Chieftain or Road Master. Went down and talk to the local dealer to see when they could be order in primer but it's not not available yet. My plan is to order one in primer and paint it matte red like my 2010. Told them I would be willing to do Gloss Red if they wanted to do a sheet metal swap with a standard Chieftain but they were not interested. Anyone know if the tank emblems are still available? Probably a question for the boys down in Charlotte.

Why wait for primer

Well part of me is still hoping Indian adds a little color the the DH line this fall. They already the matte gray on standard Chieftain (those tins on a DH would make a nice modern bomber..hmmm), the Scout had matte red paint so they know how to do it at the factory. Assuming they don't add any color to the DH line you would think starting in primer would be cheap to get the paint work done.

DH version is already plenty low on the totem pole hence my question. When I did my repaint of my Darkhorse Chief... I only had one question ... "please tell me this color option isn't coming out next year" ... why do I a repaint only do end up with the next years lookalike? :)

To get a good quality paint job? Just guessing here...
