Indian Project Scout: Build A Legend

Indian Motorcycle 'Project Scout: Build A Legend' UnderwayIndian Motorcycle has announced its newest initiative to show off the talent of dealerships around the globe – “Project Scout: Build a Legend.”

This custom motorcycle program provides select dealers around the world to customize an Indian Scout. The rules are wide open except that the entrants must use a 2016 Indian Scout model, and a minimum of three of the 200 genuine Indian Scout accessories available.

There are now 40 dealers that will compete in the 90-day program, and the winner will be announced at 75th annual Daytona Bike Week in March. The Indian Scout custom build program was open to Indian Motorcycle dealers from around the world on a first-come, first-served basis.

“The Indian Scout has long been a favorite platform for custom builders, and the 2016 Scout continues that heritage with class-leading power and handling upon which customizers can build their ultimate vision,” said Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director Scott Meek.

“Through this program we are giving our dealers around the world a global stage from which to demonstrate their creativity, and ultimately to write a new chapter in the legendary history of the Indian Scout.”

The contest was already announced to the dealers, who participated in a first-come, first-serve basis. The build already began and runs through January 18, when final custom build photos will begin being published and shared on the Indian Motorcycle website and social media channels. From there, Indian Motorcycle fans will be allowed to vote for their favorites. This fan voting will continue through February 19, and on February 20 the top three finalists will be announced.

The top three Project Scout finalists as voted by Indian Motorcycle fans will receive an all-expenses-paid weekend trip to the 75th annual Daytona Bike Week for themselves plus a guest. Finally, Indian Motorcycle will host a special award ceremony in Daytona Beach during which a panel of celebrity judges will select the ultimate winner of the “Project Scout: Build a Legend” program, and party goers will vote to determine the winner of the Fan Favorite award, Indian reports.

Stay tuned to Indian Motorcycle’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for contest updates and regular progress reports on each custom build project.
