Attendees will also be treated to two new custom Indian
Scouts. Custom builder and Bonneville Flats land speed record holder Karlee
Cobb of Klock Werks Kustom Cycles has created “Outrider” inspired by the rough
and ready attitude of the new model. Outrider is a bike that pumps up the
attitude of the 100 horsepower bike, in a design that will inspire home custom
builders. Also being revealed for the weekend is “Scout 42” designed by John
Shope, owner of custom shop Dirty Bird. The Scout has long been recognized for
its sporting heritage framed by racing wins, world records and performances on
the fabled “Wall of Death.” The custom work on John’s “Scout 42” was done to
highlight that legacy and give his bike an almost sportbike aesthetic, while not
detracting from its core handling package.
Both bikes will be unveiled before the press on Thursday,
December 11 at the Javits Center, and will be on display for the reminder of
the 2015 IMS tour. Karlee and John will be signing autographs in the Indian
Motorcycle exhibit on Friday from 2-3 p.m. and 6-7 p.m., and again on Saturday
