An Indian Vincent Chief?

I was digging through some old boxes of shit the other day, and I came across a page out of an old catalogue from a parts supplier from back in the late 80s.  It tells the story of how Indian tried to come up with a Harley beating new version of the Chief in the late 40s.  But instead of following through with this new idea, they just increased the displacement of their already obsolete flathead engine from 74 to 80 cubes.  I am posting a scan of the article below, read it, and think about what the future for both Indian, and Vincent might have been had they gone into production wiht this bike.

Catch ya on the road sometime...
