The first 1922 model Chief had a 1000 cc (61ci) engine based on that of the Powerplus; a year later the engine was enlarged to 1200 cc (73ci). Numerous improvements were made over the years, including adoption of a front brake in 1928.
In 1940, all models were fitted with the large skirted fenders that became an Indian trademark, and the Chief gained a new sprung frame that was superior to rival Harley`s unsprung rear end. The 1940s Chiefs were handsome and comfortable machines, capable of 85 mph(136 km/h) in standard form and over 100 mph (160 km/h) when tuned, although their increased weight hampered acceleration.
In 1950, the V-Twin engine was enlarged to 1300 cc (80ci) and telescopic forks were adopted. But Indian`s financial problems meant that few bikes were built, and production of the Chief ended in 1953.
Recognition of the historical significance of this model was made with a August 2006 United States Postal Service 39-cent stamp issue, part of a four panel set entitled American Motorcycles.
High detail modelling, with groups that can be animated, contains materials zones for retexturing. The model is UV mapped and textured.
Includes five texture maps which can be applied to alter the style of the motorcycle.
