There’s plenty of custom potential within the new Indian Scout, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how that develops over the next twelve months. Talking to David Zemla from Burly Brand at Cologne, he was itching to get his hands on one to play with. In the meantime, this is one of two Scouts that was revealed at Progressive International Motorcycle Show in New York today!
I’ll let the press release tell the story …
“Being revealed for the weekend is “Scout 42” designed by John Shope, owner of custom shop Dirty Bird. “The Scout has long been recognized for its sporting heritage framed by racing wins, world records and performances on the fabled ‘Wall of Death’. The custom work on John’s ‘Scout 42’ was done to highlight that legacy and give his bike an almost sportbike aesthetic, while not detracting from its core handling package.”
