    I have wanted one of their chiefs for a long time. I continue to search for a used one but have never seen any for sale. I suppose if I could just leave my bikes stock, I could have had enough coin to get a new one already.

There's always Lotto!:);)

    Last time I checked which was several years ago, the kit was in the 40’s and a fully assembled one was about $60,000.00

    Well I believe I’ll have to pass. I could buy a house in Iowa or Texas for that price. And if I were to buy it thats exactly what I’d have to do cause my wife would kick my *ss plume out of the one I’m in now....lol

    Wish I hadn't looked at this thread, now there's another bike I want and can't afford.

    1917 Power Plus

    Something is not right here. That bike looks like a 20's Scout with left hand side gear change and nothing like a 1917 Powerplus twin. Do a google of images for a 1917 powerplus and you will see what I mean,....

    As a replica build it looks like a degree of departure from original has been allowed. The front disk is a givaway even before you look closer. Follow the link and you will see that KiwiIndian build them from the ground up. It is just a very cool looking bike and I would be very happy to own and ride one.

    I know just what you mean and it's way past time I went and saw the guy with all the Powerplus's in Palmy. I don't have a lot of money in reserve but boy! I'd have a lot less if I could talk him into selling me one of his 'all in boxes' Powerplus's,......I still need to dream!! can you imagine reassembling a 100 plus year old bike? Heaven does exist on Earth if you're a biker,.....
