Indian Motorcycles Custom “Black Hills Beast”

I’m currently in the process of writing and cutting video from the Blue Ridge Parkway, in addition to editing photos and whatnot. I stumbled across this write up about a custom Indian Scout (1100) hill climber that I thought was worth sharing. At the moment, Indian is somewhat relegated to cruisers (hopefully that will change someday), but in the meantime they’ve been partnering with a lot of people to build some truly gnarly custom bikes that are simply stunning. As a prior service guy, I’m all about accomplishing more with less, so I love that they chopped up a new scout, threw on chains, and are using it as a hill climber.

The Black Hills Beast, based on a new 2015 Indian Scout, was customized to emulate the purpose built nature of historic hill climb motorcycles.

Transforming the look of the Scout started relatively easily with the addition of several new Indian Motorcycle accessories including the 1920 Solo Saddle Seat (MSRP $379.99) and a set of the accessory laced wheels ($499.99 each). Custom details that set the bike apart include an elongated custom swingarm, custom handlebar, custom radiator shroud and front number plate with an LED headlight. The 100+ horsepower of muscle in the Scout powerplant chewed up the earth via a custom tire chain designed for maximum grip when charging up a hill.
