Indian Scout by Roland Sands

Motorcycles don’t have to look all futuristic to be considered top-notch. In fact, as long as the performance is there, some riders actually prefer a bike that has a retro look. The Roland Sands Design Indian Scout is that type of bike, where even though it doesn’t look cutting-edge, it still pushes the performance to the next level.

It has exposed wiring (which you wouldn’t see in today’s standards), as well as mangled mass of cooling and radiators held together by zip ties. It was completely hand built, and the frame used on the Scout is a series of aluminum alloy castings that have been bolted together. It utilizes a high capacity 1133cc engine with double overhead camshafts to produce 86 horsepower at the rear wheel. The seat and fuel tank have been custom built and fitted for this bike, and the result gives it a look that is much more aggressive than its stock brethren.
