This is a custom 1949 Indian frame that has been modified cosmetically only. The rake and length of the frame is original. The previous owner took great care in applying metal filler to create a unique and impressive piece. This is an original 1949 frame, but due to the customization there is very little rust. Some of the paint has flaked off, but this wouldn't be a problem to fix. This could be a great start to either a one of a kind custom Indian, or a period restoration by removing the metal filler.
