Roland’s dad, Perry Sands, built some cool bikes when he was a kid. One of those machines was an Indian Chief Chopper called the Peyote Puffer. It was a hot pink and red metal flake flamed fully molded chopper, with a chrome girder fork and polished motor. Perry ended up crashing that bike and rebuilding it and strange enough, came across the frame a few years back. The bike you see coming together here is not going to be a duplicate of that bike- it’s not going to be hot pink and metal flake, but its creation is certainly inspired by Perry’s Peyote Puffer.
Our Product Designer Guy Driscoll, gives you an inside look into the ideation of the rear suspension set up.
We’ve ripped the heart out of a new Indian Chieftain, mounted it in the frame table and have set about building a new frame around beefy modern V-Twin. This is our third Chieftain, but as is usually the case, we’ve approached this one completely different than the last two by replicating a plunger suspension.
As we can’t just duplicate the original, we’ve done our best to build a plunger that’s going to work much better than the stock unit. Moving forward, the machine will sit on front and rear Traction Flat Track Race Wheels and a hand built stainless girder fork. This bike’s destiny is the highway, and the seating position will be dialed for two up road bombing, as it will make its way to Burning Man late August.
