    Indian Motorcycle and Tank Machine release limited edition Scout Bobber
    By Alex Strange

    5 Jul 2021


    Parisian dealer Indian Etoile collaborates with custom workshop Tank Machine for the release of three bright & striking takes on the Indian Scout Bobber.

    INSPIRED in part by the racing colours seen in the American Nascar Series, Clement Molina of custom workshop Tank Machine & Indian Motorcycle Étoile in Paris have combined for the release of three very special (& bright) takes Indian Scout Bobber Sixty.

    This Limited Edition NEON series takes the original stealthy approach of the Indian Motorcycle and flips it on its head, with three vibrant & striking colourways taking the front line.

    When speaking of how he brought a splash of colour to the Scout series, Clement Molina said:

    “I really wanted to imagine some intense colour and work on a new line that would redraw the Indian Scout’s tank. It is a bold choice because I decided to integrate Fluro colours to achieve this. I did not want this series to just be another build among others, the intention really was to start a new trend,”

    “While selecting the colour mixes to present to Indian Étoile, I immediately hooked on three schemes but found it impossible to make a choice of just one. I am incredibly lucky to have a partner who trusts me completely on these innovative projects. So, Sebastien from Indian Étoile agreed to create all three bikes. The name of the series seemed so obvious, the motorcycles are so luminous in these Fluro colours, that we decided to baptise them NEON.”


    One of the key characteristics of a Tank Machine custom is the attention to detail, extending past just the style - but the accessories & modifications that complete the build.

    Modifications for the Indian Motorcycle Scout Bobber NEON Edition include:

      • Choice of three “NEON” paint schemes
      • NEON Upholstery design with colour-matched stitching
      • Tank Machine dirt headlight plate with handlebar switch for “Day Light” position
      • Tank Machine Plate Holder
      • Street handlebar with mirrors and turn signal handlebar ends
      • Trask air filter kit
      • Supertrapp Black Edition Exhaust
      • Multifunction taillight kit
      • Large AVON tires
      • Full Cycle Part Treatment in Matte Black including the wheel rims
      • Fork gators

    “We chose the Scout Bobber Sixty in order to have a purified base for the modifications we were going to make, and once the colour schemes were set, we set about choosing and developing a range of accessories to really pull the project together. This includes a Dirt Track style for the light nacelle, street handlebars with accoutrements plus a Supertrapp exhaust”
    said Molina.

    You’ll certainly stand out on the street on one of these! Those interested will have to contact the Parisian Indian Étoile dealer direct.

    I like the paint job quite a bit. Very sporty.

    Honestly, I'd live to see something more than new paint....or missing fenders.

    "Custom" bikes have all become the same.

    No fenders. Solo seat. Hack off turn signals and make brake lights nearly invisible.

    Favorite customs for me would include real customizations like this:
