This custom Indian Motorcycle Scout Bobber, called Hasty Flaming Buffalo, looks nothing like the original Scout Bobber. In fact, it looks remotely like one which is precisely why we said it was a Scout Bobber on extreme diet.
Its leaner and clearly, meaner. Created by Dutch industrial product designer Luuc Muis of LM Creations, the Hasty Flaming Buffalo drew its inspiration from the 1910 Indian board-track racer and hence, the uniquely retro look.
Muis was the winner of Indian Motorcycle Custom Contest: ‘Project Scout Bobber’, in June. He was given 20 weeks to turn his winning design into a real motorcycle for November 1, 2019, unveiling at the opening day of the BigTwin Expo.
It has got a beautiful handmade tank that happens to be part of the frame which houses the airbag and electronic components. The result is a custom motorcycle minimal like the early track racers from Indian Motorcycle.
Other notables include a bespoke exhaust system by Akrapovič, CeraCarbon Racing full carbon forks with diamond cut ceramic tubes, one-off wheels by JSR Service, Moto-Master Brakes and Brembo calipers, bespoke seat by Old Dutch Leatherworks, one-off air filter by DNA Performance Filters, and mini indicators and rear light/brake light supplied by Kellermans.
Hasty Flaming Buffalo will again make its public appearances at Custombike in Bad Salzuflen from December 5 to December 7, 2019, the Autosalon in Belgium from January 10 to January 19, and Motorbeurs Utrecht in the Netherlands from February 20-23. Skip ahead for an intro video of this gorgeous two-wheeler.
