Azzkikr Custom Baggers' Len Edmondson Plies His Art on Indian Motorcycle's Newest Bagger
MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Mar 15, 2016) - Indian Motorcycle®, America's first motorcycle company, is proud to present the "Frontier 111" crafted by Azzkikr Custom Baggers of Phoenix, Ariz., as a radical interpretation of the new Indian® Springfield™ motorcycle.
The first custom to be built based on the 2016 Indian Springfield, Azzkikr's Frontier 111 showcases builder Len Edmondson's exceptional talents for creating award-winning and fully functional artwork. With this bike, his acute attention to detail and outrageous craftsmanship offer a truly show-stopping example of a thoroughly modern retro bagger that features classic lines via contemporary, artistic flare.
The Frontier 111 has obvious salutes to pedigree by incorporating the heritage of the Indian brand's skirted front fender, a leaf-spring equipped springer front end, jockey shifter with foot clutch, and historically inspired color palette surrounding Indian Motorcycle's powerful Thunder Stroke® 111 engine.
"We have been working on the cutting edge of the custom bagger movement for years now, but it's not often that you get to reveal a custom based on a motorcycle the factory just introduced," says Azzkikr's Len Edmondson. "From Day #1, we wanted something that reflected the big front wheel trend but still spoke to the heritage and style that is uniquely Indian."
The sleek Frontier 111 incorporates a sweeping line from its hand-built headlight housing to the tip of its expertly crafted rear fender. The front clip includes a custom-made triple tree sourced from KewlMetal, a springer-type suspension utilizing a leaf-spring, a 26-inch...
Spring has broken at the Buffalo Chip and we are counting down the days to August. The new road that will provide a short and very scenic ride from I-90 Exit 37 to the Chip is taking shape and it won't be long before we are testing it out for you. We've so far announced Kid Rock, Miranda Lambert and "Weird Al" Yankovic will be performing in 2016 with many more world-class bands in the works. The Cossacks and Clint Ewing will be returning and we will have more killer surprises to announce soon.
It was a tight, hard-fought race from bell to bell. In the end, Krystal's Sport Scout took top honors.
After a live vote in Austin during the initial reveal, the live voting at Daytona Bike Week, and here on the site, Krystal was able to edge out a win over Nick's classic bobber.
The attention to detail and functionality of the Sport Scout were mentioned again and again both online and during the live voting. Her radical reimagining of the Scout platform is what finally edged her ahead in the race.
At the end of the day the results were as follows:
Krystal's Sport Scout: 59.9%
Nick's Bobber: 40.1%
Krystal's Sport Scout: 57.7%
Nick's Bobber: 42.3%
