Indian Scout Custom by Roland Sands

   

For the Wheels & Waves custom bike culture festival in Biarritz, France, Roland Sands Design prepared a special Indian Scout that would capture the very essence of bespoke motorcycle making.

We built a complete Chromoly girder fork from scratch including an Ohlins TTX mountain bike shock for some controlled dampening, we made some new radiators and cleaned up the cooling system, constructed a faux oil bag to house all of the electronics, built a custom stainless exhaust using our new “Track” muffler components, and plenty of other details. The frame, fork and swingarm where powdercoated in a beautiful vintage Indian red and Airtrix knocked out an amazing matching paint job for the sheet metal with hand turned gold leaf accents. This was a fun build and we put our best foot forward in hopes to pay proper homage to the original scouts that tore up race tracks all over the USA from the 1920s through the 1950s.” says Roland
