This one looks like fun. A '49 for under 10 grand.

I think he's saying that the "New Indian Chief" is uglier than the new Buell.

If I'm gonna spend 30 grand on an Indian, it might as well be authentic.
Okay, but those original Indians are 20's flathead technology and require constant intensive maintenance. Now instead today you can spend the same money on a NEW IMPROVED Indian that won't require all that maintenance... hey wait a second......
