FRENCH custom motorcycle maestros Indian Motorcycle Metz have just announced to custom Scout Bobbers, called Hundred and Red Wings.
The first bike is named after the Woippy-based firm shifted 100 new bikes in just one month of trading, while Red Wings is all about celebrating the custom cruiser in its purest form.
Indian Motorcycle Metz ‘Hundred’
Keeping with the Sprint Spirit, the Scout Bobber ‘Hundred’ takes its inspiration straight from American drag strips with a drag bike inspired riding position, Biltwell handlebars, a saddle kit from Wunderkind and a riser provides a more linear position. The intake is completely open to let the Scout breathe through a Trask Performance filter with a Freedom performance exhaust and Samco Performance reinforced water hoses handle the coolant. Riding on Arnott pneumatic shock absorbers and rims from Revtech fitted with Avon Cobra Chrome tyres, braking is taken care of with Galfer petal discs.
Finishing the bike off is an Orange Lamborghini paint scheme with 7 coats of varnish including a final ceramic varnish completed by AR Performance.
Indian Motorcycle Metz ‘Red Wings’
While the Hundred is all aggression and speed, the Red Wings is a more classical looking machine, with clean lines and an old school look. Metz wanted to celebrate the Old School spirit by purifying the machine as much as possible and include details like the Monza style fuel cap and the Joker machined pulley cover.
Partly created with parts from the Indian accessory catalogue, it features new rider controls with all-black Indian Motorcycle brake and clutch levers, Indian Motorcycle grips and genuine floorboards. The floating solo seat was made by Les Leathers’, Joff le Barbu and features the Indian Motorcycle roundel and Metz logo.
The bike sits on chrome wire wheels that are complimented by a Freedom Performance exhaust. The Red Wings rides on Arnott air suspension and is wrapped in a bespoke fender fabricated by Indian Motorcycle Metz. Contrasting the bright elements is the deep Apple Candy paint applied by AR Performance.
Crowning the front end of the bike is the eye-catching springer front end. It was created especially for the bike German firm Blechfee.
Speaking of the bikes, Thomas Castany of Indian Motorcycle Metz said:
“We make every effort to show a fun, young and dynamic image and there is no better way to express that than with the customs we create based on the Indian Scout. Indian Motorcycle is a legendary brand, and we are proud to represent it in Lorraine.”
