    Ride a Piece of Recent History; Win this 2012 Indian Chief Classic!
    You can enter to win #24 of 110 Commemorative Chiefs built in Spirit Lake, Iowa.
     
    Over the past ten years, 10 lucky National Motorcycle Museum supporters have won classic-styled American motorcycles from the National Motorcycle Museum. The one thing the winners have in common is making a small donation to the Museum for a chance to win.

     
    The machine you can donate to win this year is a 2012 Indian Chief Classic graciously donated by the new Indian Motorcycle Company. That's right. As you may have been reading, Indian is back, and stronger than ever as a part of the powerhouse Polaris Industries, Incorporated. You can win this bike, serial number 24 of a special run of 110 machines commemorating 110 years since Indian went into full production in Springfield, Massachusetts.
     
    "Besides being a great ride, this bike is probably already a collectible; it's #24 of 110  specially built 2012 Chiefs that have a special numbered badge, a cool fender light sculpture for your desk, a certificate and classy key fob," says Museum President, John Parham."It's one of the first off the new assembly line in Spirit lake, Iowa."
     
    The bike has definitely got the look, but underneath the chrome and Indian Red sheet metal (no plastic that we can find!) is a 105 cubic inch PowerPlus V-Twin, a six speed transmission, electronic ignition and digital fuel injection. Wheels are chrome with stainless spokes and the solo saddle is real leather. It's a premium motorcycle; 21st Century technology with that classic Indian motorcycle style.
     
    A very important part of the National Motorcycle Museum's fundraising program is its annual motorcycle giveaway. By making a $5.00 donation for a chance to win, (six chances for $25) you also help support the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. Go to www.nationalmcmuseum.org to see more pictures of the Indian and donate to win. There's also an on-line tour of the Museum you will be supporting.
