    Congrats. Can't wait to hear your review on an Indian. They are on my wish list. My 13 Ultra Classic will be on the market in about a month as soon as the weather gets warmer. Only 9K on it so it should sell quickly. Probably just going to sit on the cash for a while cause I am not selling my RS and can't even think about selling my RSV unless an Indian totally knocks my socks off. It and gets wife approved. Not because of the money, but because she loves the ride on the RSV more than any other bike I have owned. She won't ride on any of my other bikes. Maybe your writeup will push me a little more.

                Damn PB, you are on it!!
                I have been looking online at everything for sale around here for the last week. Not a whole lot of used Indians near Dayton Ohio compared to other areas. Closest Dealership to me is 93 miles away.
                Think I have decided that I'm looking for a (could change if I find the right deal)
                2015-16 chieftain
                under 20K miles
                Of course priced as cheap as hell LOL (like that will ever happen)
                color is not that important (preferably not pink)
                some of the options I am looking for, or will add.
                Backrest - for T-bag on trips
                mid size handlebars (10-14")
                smoked flair windhsield
                prefer stock exhaust or stage one slip-ons (I don't want loud pipes)
                leather crash bar covers
                highway pegs
                maybe a upgraded seat as it seems like many people change out the stock one.
                ((( wonder if they will make me an ED seat for the Indian)))

                nothing is set in stone. the 2014 that LDofDC posted sounds interesting as does PB's 2015 chieftain.

                I have found a 2016 about 1.5 hrs away that I am hoping to look at tomorrow or sat. I have been talking to the guy and it sounds like a pretty solid maybe...
                I think I have been driving my wife nuts with this obsession. but hay, "It's what I do"

                  PB where the hell were you when I was looking?

                  Cike seriously check out Classiciron.com its less then a day ride for you, great prices and good selection of bikes. Just for perspective I live in southern Va in the middle of the state right on the NC boarder and it takes me 6 hoursish by car to Cleveland and about 7-7.5 on bike. Drive down one night, get a room, ride home the next.


                  Right now they have these 3 plus some others but these had the lowest miles

                    Looks like you did pretty good on your own. I like the 2 tone. That Chieftan you posted for $12.9 looks like a pretty sweet deal.

                  You could always consider another route. Not too far from you.

                    I have never heard the dreaded clack but apparently its a real thing, however many people coming from other motor types confuse normal air cool big vtwin noise with clack and complain even though what they are hearing is normal. My Chieftain doesnt have it so I dont really know what it sounds like, but having look into it myself it seems if you have it you will know. I do think its over blown and from my understanding very few TS111's have it.

                      I've looked into it. Wouldn't stop me from buying one . May just be a bunch of B.S. just want cike to be informed.

                        I have never heard any clacking out of mine, of course coming off of a twin cam with rattling lifters the Indian was really quiet. I have had my Indian 3 years in August not a single issue (other than the crappy stereo) just oil and filters

                      Ha, Ha! Scary when money is burning in your pocket isn't it?

                      That's how I wound up with my 13 Ultra that I don't like at all once I got to really ride it.

                        He bought a Chieftain not a Springfield. KBB for a 2014 Chieftain is $14,400

                          Wow! I am giving you 2 congrats in 1 thread. Have you though about having the new scoot shipped instead of having to drive 11 hours to pick it up and having someone drive the truck back? I had a Royal Star Venture shipped from Florida to here in New Hampshire last summer and it only cost me $350.00. More than worth it. Besides, you still have that nice rR to blast around on until the new scoot arrives.

                            not sure I trust someone else to deliver it. Plus as soon as I hit the buy-it-now I jumped in my truck and started heading this way. i'm only about 1-1.5 hrs away now (in hotel room) I didn't even get to talk to the guy to see when I could pick it up until I was about 5 hrs into the trip. Going for broke here lol
