You have to become a member.

In the mean time I am still looking for an Enfield Chief  :)

Cheers Charles

Frame numbers are the hardest numbers to find info on for the Reddich REs & Indian Sales Corp models. The REOC/UK isn't going to give them out without a club membership or a small fee. They have the best list that exists.

I've been watching Chief and Trailblazer models for a long time to get an idea of the number ranges at least. All the 57 Indians were in the 4000 to early 5000 range. The 58 models were in the 5000 to 6000 range till the Chiefs came out. Some Chiefs I've seen were in the high 7000 range but most are in the 8000 to 9000 range through the end of production in late 1960.

I know this isn't a big help but it will get you in the ball park.

Hi rotorwrench,

Not sure who your message is addressed to.  I joined REOC some time ago.  But for a rule of thumb I appreciate the info.

Sorry to take so long in responding, I was away from civilization for a few days. The bike is a Scout and it is not a basket case but does have some parts removed, might be worth getting in touch with my dad anyways, I sent you an email and copied him.

G'day RGT,

Thanks very much for getting back to me.  I have emailed your dad, we will see what happens.

I am still on the hunt for an Enfield Indian Chief if anyone else knows of one for sale.

Cheers Charles

Chiller, A person on this site saw the picture of mine and contacted me through the members rides. His handle on this site is jaminjim. He owns a Chief, he doesn't show his email but I'm pretty sure you can get in touch with him through this site. Never know he may want to sell.  ERC

I think he posted on Blasco's blog that he had found a bike.

To the best of my knowledge the 59-60 Chiefs didn't use the toolboxes pictured on that bike because the batteries were to big. Even so a beautiful bike.  ERC

It is chiller184 here.

After a complicated story and a long search I have finally found a 1960 Chief in Hartford. the motorcycle is now on its way to Australia.

For some good view of an Interceptor riding check this out.
