I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that is Chris Pfouts Indian Chief cut down with the dual Linkert manifold. CP still has the manifold (he let me take a pic of it for my GKM piece on Linkert). Larry's custom parts were sold to Jesse James. The rest of that bike was sold to an Indian collector in NJ. Very far ahead their time, both of those cats.
The dude on the right has a Harbor Vintage Motorcycles T-shirt on, it appears. Quite well know, especially for VL's, out of Vermont.
Chris Pfouts indeed did live in Vermont at one point and he has some odd flathead parts in his stash. CP and IL were roomates in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I think we have a positive ID.
Your right..that is Chris and if your interested I have the whole series of IH's where he did that buildup of the Cheif in the pics..your right WAY ahead of their time!!!
