I'm tired, so if this sounds ignorant-- I'm sorry.

2 things:

1. How do I verify if a Chieftain has been lowered & tell if it is BOTH front and rear that has been lowered.

2. How to un-do it??

I bought it from the original owner. An ex cop...not the friendliest fellow...kinda tight-lipped and reserved. I messaged him and asked, but no reply.
I don't know if I should call and ask or not....
Don't want to aggravate him. It was a weird day when I bought the bike. It was his wifes, and when we had done the deal, later he told me she didn't want to sell it but he said, "tough".... I don't think she was happy-- but I didn't know this till the bike was strapped into my trailer.

And that was the last time dinner was late in that house.

Interesting story. Curious brother ...... what makes you think it’s lowered ? Ride? Sits too low ?
My thinking is ....... if his wife had it good chance it was modified. Anything else done ? Exhaust ? Pull back bars ?
Can we he t pic of her ?

It sits low and I have biffed the pipes pretty good several times. I looked at a bike at the dealer and measured clearance from pipes to the ground.
Yes, it has some "extras" including cams.
