INTRODUCING THE CUSTOM HILLCLIMB INDIAN® SCOUT®
ABOUT THE BUILDERS
SWINGARM AND SUSPENSION
1920 SOLO SADDLE
The new 1920 Solo Saddle from Genuine Indian Motorcycle® Accessories features a throwback design to the seat on the very first Scout® and was a perfect fit for the Black Hills Beast project. Covered in genuine leather and featuring an innovative cantilevered design it gives any Indian® Scout® a custom, heritage inspired look.
WHEELS AND TIRES
A unique set of tires would be required to guide the Black Hills Beast up the hill. The rear tire is directly from a US Army Willy’s Jeep while the front tire is a classic Firestone. Black laced rims from the Genuine Indian Motorcycle® Accessories catalog finished off the classic look. Finally, a tire chain was hand built for the rear tire to help propel the Black Hills Beast forward in the loose dirt.
HERITAGE INSPIRED PAINT
