Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, unveiled the Custom Military Scout, the first in a series of custom Indian Scouts designed and crafted by some of America’s leading custom bike builders. The Scout-inspired Custom Series features a chronology of the rich, century-long history of the Indian Scout motorcycle.
The Custom Military Scout is built on the award-winning 2015 Indian Scout platform, sporting a matte green paint indicative of a vintage military bike that was perfectly applied by Brad Smith of The Factory Match. It utilizes taillights that are modern reproductions on a custom bracket to mimic the original military-style lights.
The bike features genuine Indian Motorcycle accessory leather saddlebags, a Klock Werks “Klassic” seat kit and leather wraps for the base of the Indian accessory quick-detach windshield — all upholstered using matching leather hides.
A custom gun scabbard mount holds a Thompson sub-machine gun with a custom gunstock by Boyds Gunstocks of Mitchell, SD etched with both the USO and Indian Motorcycle logos.
