The Indian Chout is a rather interesting beast, in some respects it represents the American version of the Triton. In off-road racing circles during the 1930’s it became popular to drop a 1490cc Indian Chief motor into an Indian Scout frame, creating a Frankenstein bike with a relatively high power-to-weight ratio for the era.
The Chout pictured here is currently listed for sale via Buck’s Bikes with a whole host of other fascinating Indians, click the link here for more.
