Episode 1 features RSD build inspired by Ed Kretz

Indian is producing a new online video series featuring three custom builds using the new Scout as the starting base. Each build draws inspiration from Indian Scouts from the past, while showcasing the new model’s potential as a platform for customization.

The first episode sees Roland Sands and Aaron Boss of RSD conceptualizing a build inspired by Ed Kretz, who won the inaugural Daytona 200 in 1937 on an Indian Scout. The RSD build also draws elements from the FTR, creating what would be a street-legal version of a SuperHooligan racer.

Later episodes will feature builds by Brittney Olsen, founder of 20th Century Racing, and Swedish shop Unique Custom Cycles. Episodes will trickle out over the next few weeks, leading up to the final reveal of all three custom builds later this summer.

A bloodhound when it comes to tracking information on new motorcycles, if there's a new model on the horizon, you'll probably hear about it from him first.

    I'm worried that they’re gonna play out trackers the same way they played out choppers and Café racers... But man, Roland always nails it!
