C = Chief

D = 4th Letter of the alphabet means which decade

E = 5th Letter of the alphabet means which year

CDE = Chief 1945.  384 is the production number   

Color: Police Blue

Engine: 74 Cubic Inch  1200 cc

Throttle: Left Hand Suicide

Transmission: 3 Speed Right Shift

These machines were only available for essential use and subject only at the approval of the War Production Board W.P.B. Some of the approved use was Police, Fire, Mail, Farmers during the time period. The Indian 741 Scout was used for Military deployment. 

The Chief was purchased from Mike Tomas of Kiwi Indian Motorcycles in 2005. https://kiwiindian.com/pages/about-us  It was part of an estate sale of a gentleman in Chicago who, as I understand, used to be a Motorcycle Police Officer back in the day. 

The fenders skirts on these bikes were removed to save metal for the war effort. 

You’ll notice on page 1 of the PDF that it is listed as 1944, this bike is a 1945. The 1945 bikes were exactly the same as the 1944 but due to the war effort, there was minimal advertising and the use of parts was strictly monitored. 1945 was the least production year of the Civilian Essential Use Chief’s and it has been listed that there may have been 1,970 produced but I have spoken to several Indian Motorcycle experts who believe the actual number was much lower. This machine has a low production number of CDE384 which makes the machine a rare low number collector machine.

These motorcycles are very hard to find, especially in the restored condition.
