As seen in the pages of Bikernet Indian Motorcycles is once again doing some interesting new projects reflecting on the history of the famous brand. The Page Group applauds Polaris / Indian Motorcycle Company’s direction as the Indian Scout and Chief both bring far more history to their brand stories than just the styling alone. The Indian Brand had been the #1 motorcycle brand in the country before the 1950’s. The brand is recognized by collectors by being found in all major collections across the globe. It has been perhaps the most innovative with great styling, innovative technologies, creative engine development, suspension and brake improvements, and so much more in the early years of the brand (1901-1950’s). It has won almost every motorcycle race across the globe during that period as well. It has been, and should continue to be one of the most recognized brands in the world.
An Iconic brand like Indian Motorcycles deserves to have its history told, and on the project that The Page Group lead for the Gilroy edition of this famous brand we worked hard to develop an event marketing experience thru the design, build, and strategic development reflecting on the history / heritage of the company. It has been recognized as one of the top mobile marketing big rigs built (by the mobile marketing association). Check it out at : Indian Motorcycle Custom Event Big Rig
Congratulations Indian Motorcycle Co we hope your future is long and successful. An Iconic Brand should be part of our countries legacy and heritage and it is great to see a phenomenal company lead the effort to revitalize a very unstable recent history.
Indian Motorcycle Celebrates The Scout’s Heritage With A Series Of Custom Jobs
Indian Motorcycle just launched the Scout Inspired Custom Series; a chronology of the rich, century-long history of the Indian Scout motorcycle. Throughout 2015, Indian Motorcycle will unveil a series of custom Indian Scouts designed and crafted by some of America’s leading custom bike builders — each designed to celebrate an important Indian Scout milestone or achievement since its debut in 1920. Each of the custom Scouts will be accompanied by vignettes to share the legacy of the Indian Scout.
To kick-off the series, Indian Motorcycle today launched the Custom Military Scout in a vignette narrated by Mark Wahlberg. The Custom Military Scout is a tribute to the company’s nearly 100-year history of supporting the U.S. Military and to celebrate Indian Motorcycle’s partnership with USO. The Custom Military Scout was designed and built by world-renowned custom builder Klock Werks Kustom Cycles of Mitchell, South Dakota.
“Klock Werks Kustom Cycles is honored to partner with Indian Motorcycle on a project that pays tribute to the USO and their outstanding work on behalf of the dedicated men and women of our U.S. Armed Forces,” said Brian Klock, founder of Klock Werks. “Indian Motorcycle has a long and impressive legacy of supporting the U.S. Military dating back to WWI and all of us at Klock Werks are humbled to play a role in this important and historic endeavor.”
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 street legal reproductions on a custom bracket to mimic the original military-style lights. The Custom Military Scout 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. The first public showing of the bike will be at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering in Monterey California on May 15th & 16th.
“Today we are proud to launch our Scout Inspired Custom Series with our inaugural episode dedicated to the USO and our mutual support of the U.S. Military and their families, and we are grateful to brand ambassador Mark Wahlberg and our friends at Klock Werks for their support and fine craftsmanship,” said Steve Menneto, Polaris Industries vice president of motorcycles. “The Indian Scout has built a long and storied legacy of racing wins, world records, engineering innovations and industry firsts, and along the way it has won the hearts and minds of fans around the world. Those achievements have materially impacted our current and future direction for the Indian Scout marque, and we look forward to telling some of those important stories through our Scout Inspired Custom Series.”
The Custom Military Scout and accompanying video vignette narrated by Mark Wahlberg can be found by visiting www.indianmotorcycle.com, along with upcoming stories in the Scout Inspired Custom Series.
