We have been mentioning a build that we are working on for Indian Motorcycle. We are starting the hard push to get this thing back together in the next two weeks. The deadline is rapidly approaching and we are working around the clock to make sure that we have something fantastic to unveil at this year's 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally!

Follow this thread to see what we are up to. I will be updating this as well as our Instagram Account.

Here is the final long edit of the Black Hills Beast video.
@NickJ, you KNOW how much I love the bike, and from what I hear from those who saw it and heard it, it's truly a beast. However, Indian are a bunch of wankers. I am yet to see ANY evidence that the bike you created ever climbed anything except a trailer. I know it's more than capable and you built it to climb, so call your buddies up in marketing and tell them to use it like it was meant to be used. Authenticity is really really important, and so far they score nada when it comes to the Beast. If they don't have anyone with balls to do it, I have a couple volunteers in my household alone.

Oh Indian has some plans for this bike alright! They have already sent us some pictures of some pretty gnarly hills that they looking to run this beast up. They love this machine and are chomping at the bit to do another shoot with it :cool:

That's great. You heard the story over a taco lunch, the reason we got into the brand in the first place was Pandya's ride across the country culminating in a speed trial on an unfaired, gnarly Chief.

Tell me how you really feel @Meggie.

It climbed the shit out of a trailer for the first several days of it's existence because we had to go on display, and as much fun as a busted up show bike is, we did not have time or the manpower to fix it prior to Sturgis (like Roland Sands did with the Project 156 bike). @4Nines and myself had hundreds of hours into it, and it would have broken our hearts for something to happen to it before we got to unveil it.

Now that it is in Indian's hands, we have gotten a slew of questions asking how solid it is as they want to do some awesomeness with it. The machine is solid and it has been seen by the world intact. Now it is time to test the thing, so be patient would ya?

Alright, alright. You did your part, now Indian needs to step up to the plate.
