    The 2014 Indian Chief Vintage brings iconic Indian styling to a whole new level.

    Special features unique to the Chief Vintage include the quick release windshield
    and stunningly detailed leather saddlebags, which you can install or remove without
    tools in minutes to convert your bike between cruiser and soft bagger. Also easy to
    install or remove is the distressed tan leather fringe for the leather seat. Chrome
    fender tips add style and protection, and there’s a chrome script vintage
    badge on the front fender.

    The Indian Chief Vintage has iconic Indian Motorcycle features such as valanced
    fenders, multi-function instrumentation atop the tear-drop fuel tank, and the lit
    War Bonnet guiding the way up front.

    It also has several features that are special yet standard, including: Cruise control,
    keyless start, ABS, throttle by wire, an innovative cast aluminum frame with
    integrated air intake – and extensive chrome from end to end. Powering the new
    generation of Indian Motorcycle riders down the open road is the Thunder Stroke™ 111.
    This smooth, powerful and efficient new engine combines both style and power,
    inspired by earlier Chiefs of the 1940s.

    Personalize your Indian Chief Vintage with Genuine Indian Motorcycle Parts & Accessories
    and get rolling. This is the ultimate signature bike built by Indian Motorcycle enthusiasts,
    for Indian Motorcycle enthusiasts.

    I really do like this bike A LOT. I have always loved that shade of brown leather for the seats and the overall look of this just strikes a chord with me. I just hope they kept the seats and their quality at the same level as the previous models. I really do like the look of the previous Indian's, Bobby's is something to see in person. For me though, the price was the biggest drawback, but I was seriously considering one just the same. This model removes the price hurdle and I think they hit a home-run with the look of the motor, hopefully it will be reliable.
    I must be getting a bit soft though as I am also finding myself slightly drawn to the Chieftan and the fact it has music. I am just not sure if I am at a point yet where I can see myself with a full fairing like that as I prefer just the wind-shield. There is nothing in the Victory line that would make me think of getting rid of my Cross Roads, but I cannot say the same now with the new Indian line.

    This is the bike I'd go with too! I'm keeping my Vision for sure though. Maybe a future model of the Chieftan will knock the Vision off the number one spot.

    I wonder if dealers will have the ability to delete the white wall tires and go with standardblack instead. I've had HD dealers tell me they do that all the time for folks ordering Softail Deluxes.

    I am really liking the blue vintage with the solo seat and back rest. This would feel just right in my garage next to my Hammer.

    I really like this one as well. I'm not to sure about all the chrome though. I like to ride and keeping all those acres of chrome clean would require some time (I think my Cross Roads strikes a decent balance). I'd like to have a Dark Horse all blacked out with maybe some brushed alum. looking heads and accent pieces here or there. I'm also still not sure about that big ol honking engine. I'd like to see it in a 80-85ci engine. But if I were going to get one this is the one I would get. I like almost everything about the looks of it with the exception of maybe a little more sculped side panels and that rear tail light turn signals. But maybe even that wouldn't look so bad in black.

    Sure! Anything for a price. Think about it. It is two tire changes. What will that cost you at the dealer? Or simply wear them out then replace. Besides, you can't see the WW when you are riding, hopefully!

    You don't like the look, or the way it feels? My passenger liked it... and it comes off if you want to have the solo-saddle look.
