Description: This man is seated on an Indian Chief, a model that was introduced by the Indian Motocycle Company in 1920 (the spelling of Motocycle refers to a nineteenth-century horseless carriage and was used to distinguish the company from other motorcycle makers). This was one of the most popular bikes sold by the firm, which produced different variations of this model into the 1940s.
