My late father-in-law, Bill Johnson, sitting on his Indian Chief Roadmaster in the snow in front of the high school he attended, Hendersonville High School, in Hendersonville, NC.  His dad owned an Indian shop in town, so his Chief had just about every accessory imaginable.  The two words on the front fender are "Bill - Ruth."  Ruth was his high school sweetheart, whom he later married, and was my wife's mother.  His dad also sent him to the Indian factory in Springfield, MA, to get certified at the factory mechanic school.  We still have his original certificate.
