Custom Bikes revealed a for the show
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.
