The Electric Chair

A lot of people have seen the pictures of Mike Fitzgerald's '39 Indian 4, named the Electric Chair, in the June '69 issue of Roth's Choppers Magazine. But, a lot of people haven't seen these pictures, especially the color photo.
Mike originally bought the 4 just to ride around town. After a wreck, he decided to redo it in the form you see here. As if the bike isn't unique on it's own, the amazing thing about it (besides the killer pipes) is all the molding on it is done in lead - not a bit of bondo in the whole bike.
This wasn't a show-only bike, people have told me Mike rode this bike all over the place, even from SoCal all the way out to Arizona and back several times.
