Ciao Welding and INDIAN MOPED!

Building a Chicago based Ciao loaner for my gang members to use at near by rallies or around town. Its a slow build because its a some what free build. The frame was given to me from Sam Mckay and has been in Blk Blk for some time. Willie used to own it and ran a reed kit on it, you can see the subframe section cut out for the intake. Have a Pinasco 75cc kit and a few other goodies lined up for this thing. It already has the Malossi 8.8 to 1 gears in the rear transmission wooo! Look at those horrible welds!!! The coolest part of being in Blk Blk is spraying black over all the fuck ups in a build.

Used this haggard maxi seat to soften the blows.

So YEA!!! Finally got this sweet Indian moped off of HNRZ Elyse for free! She needed room in her garage and I feel like I'm the only person in Chicago that wants one. It came with no wheels but I had these Indian mags set away in my pile. Of course they were missing the brake hubs and axles but i found 1 compatible set, just gotta find another. I'm super stoked on this thing for real!!!! Picture me rollin!! Who wants an Indian loaner!!???????
 Paint job is so WHET.
 Guys you know what this means right?! It goes atleast 24mph!

 Got my fork lock functioning so I can park right out front of the Smash Mouth concert with confidence.

 Not original.
 Rack for Big K's
 Came with a couple extra gears for trail riding.
 I am absolutely addicted to mineral water....more specifically, TOPO CHICO.
Is that not the most insane emblem for a drink youve ever seen? AN INDIAN DRINKING LIKE ENCINO MAN OUT OF A RIVER. hahahha!


  1. I have many new old stock indian parts to help with your indian build.

  2. I have an all original 1978 Indian moped that needs some restoration but is in a lot better condition then yours was. I would like to sell it but I'm not sure what it is worth and I don't know if they came with titles or not and of course I don't have one.
