Jeb Scolman came up with another mind blowing creation lately, for all of those who are unaware about Jeb; he is the same artist who built the “Spirit of Munro”. The custom Indian Scout is named as “Black Bullet”, it was built to race and continue the tradition of an Indian Scout ripping across the Bonneville Salt Flats. It will be on display between 31st of July to 8th August in Sturgis at the company display on Lazelle St.
Indian press release states, “The post-war hot rod crowd was using airplane drop tanks for race cars, and the motorcycle racers started to adapt nose cones to help them cut through the wind. As the bike took shape we started calling it the ‘Black Bullet.’ The minimal body and stout but seemingly simple frame are wrapped around a 1200cc Indian Scout engine as tightly as possible. This is one small motorcycle!”
The press release continues: “The all-custom, all-metal, and all hand-made bike features a custom windscreen that wraps around the front of the bike to fair in the headlight. Tight clip-ons and footrests mounted to the rear axle makes for as streamlined a riders position as possible. The minimal seat, controls and shapes all lend themselves to the single mission of exploring this bike’s top speed. It was created to be beautiful and fast. Scolman even cast a custom intake manifold to turn the throttle body sideways and allow for an even tighter engine packaging.”
