Last November, Indian Motorcycles launched their Project Scout competition to give dealers around the world a chance to showcase not only the Indian Scout, but their design and creative flair. As an open ended contest, the only rules were the use of an Indian Scout (or new Scout Sixty) as well as three genuine accessories.
It’s now January and the entrants are in – an eclectic collection of 35 bikes entered by dealers in the US, Canada, Switzerland, Germany and other countries. As one would expect when a competition like this is open to people from all over the world the themes and ideas are very broad and the dealers have come up with some truly wonderful custom bikes.
From now through Friday 19th February, Indian Motorcycle fans can vote for their favorite Project Scout by visiting http://www.indianmotorcycle.com/en-us/project-scout. On Saturday 20th February, the top three Project Scout finalists as voted by Indian Motorcycle fans will be announced. The dealers behind these three machines will then receive an all-expenses-paid weekend trip to the 75th annual Daytona Bike Week.
Indian Motorcycle will host a special award ceremony in Daytona Beach on Friday 11th March, during which a panel of celebrity judges will select the ultimate winner of the ‘Project Scout: Build a Legend’ program, with party goers voting for the winner of the Fan Favorite award.
Reid Wilson, Marketing Manager for Indian Motorcycle commented: “The response from our dealers to the Scout Custom Series and now this Project Scout program has been incredible. Watching these builds come together from around the world has been amazing. It’s clear that the passion and talent for customizing Indian Motorcycle models is built into our dealer base, and we know that people will be fired up when they see the final Project Scout builds.”
Below is just a sample of some of the bikes you can vote for.
