1950 Indian Chief Carousel Motorcycle
This unique 1950’s carousel ride was built by renowned Belgium manufacturer Lenaert. The Lenaert "Indian" motorcycles were made from 1951 through to 1966, and fitted to a variety of carnival rides in number of styles. The appearance is obviously patterned after the early Indian cycles with plunger frame and skirted fenders.
They measure about 140cm (55") in length, and from what’s available online it seems as little as 500 were manufactured. Few survive today and when they sell they attract between 5 & 8kUSD, although a beautifully restored example sold for just under 10.5kUSD (see attached pic)
Reports indicate Lenaert manufactured 6 operational examples powered by 50cc Flandria moped engines. These were used as circus rides, but only one is accounted for today in the USA. This is a timeless piece of history, completely original with excellent patina and like all art and classics is almost guaranteed to increase in value.
