  1. The Black "Naked Ripper" is in production (111 & 116 intake filter)

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Thunder Works produces what we believe to be the most effective air filters for all the Indian bikes. The Hurican (for Scout) and the "Rippers" for the 111 and 116 bikes all incorporate a "bulb" design as well as a large reusable filter. Air flow is slowed down as it turns a 90 degree angle in...
  2. TRAVEL TRUNKS for the Challenger available now

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Congress may pass a law that if you buy an Indian Challenger you must travel across the US at least once. Congress is pretty busy so I will let you know if this happens. Meanwhile, you can buy a travel trunk for the Challenger if you wish to hit the road without a Congressional mandate. Thunder...
  3. Adjustable leather drink holder

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Thunder Works now offers three drink holders in black leather or tan leather (so I guess that makes six). We have a small one, a large one and now an adjustable one.

  6. I am a little more bald from new intake

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Some of you know me. I like to make new products that are different and hopefully better. Well, I have been working on intakes for all the Indians made with a 3D printer.

  9. New product teaser Feedback wanted

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    I ride a 2016 Springfield and use it for designing and testing new products. I have been using a Tan dual Corbin seat for several years now.

  11. New Luggage Rack for 111 bikes

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    As customers request, we keep adding new products. This luggage rack looks like our other racks but it is designed to fit over the rear fender of a solo set up. It is quick release and requires hard bag spools to mount on. The flat area is 16' x 13' so it is probably the largest area of any...

  16. New intake for Scout "Hurican"

    Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    Well I am excited. I finally found a way to 3D print parts hardy enough for the outdoor motorcycle world. I am using ASA plastic.
