2001 Indian Centennial Chief
The Indian Motorcycle Company of America (IMCOA), an amalgamation of nine companies, was court-awarded the Indian name in 1998 and began producing a new line of Indian motorcycles at its plant in Gilroy, California one year later. The first “Gilroy Indian” was dubbed the Chief, later to be followed by Scout and Spirit models. To celebrate Indian’s centennial, IMCOA produced a limited production 100th Anniversary Edition of each model and sponsored a cross-country road trip from the original headquarters in Springfield, Massachusetts to its new home in Gilroy. IMCOA produced motorcycles for only four years, ending production in 2003.
