Project Chieftain | Indian Custom Dealer Contest

Indian's Chieftain is the latest model to get the dealer contest treatment

Customized by the dealership’s internal team, 10 Indian dealerships created the most badass Chieftain bagger they could imagine. Indian has put these bikes up for a vote here. The top three bikes will be unveiled at an Indian VIP party in Daytona Beach during Daytona Bike Week in March.

Every voter will be entered to win a new 2017 Chieftain. Each daily vote is equal to an entry in the sweepstakes. Voters can vote daily to increase sweepstakes entries and chances to win. Here are just a few bikes in the running.

Our goal was to elevate the aspects of the Chieftain performance platform. Because this particular model was already well known for its handling and ergonomics, the challenge was exciting and interesting. Increasing power output with the Indian Motorcycle performance cams, intake and a handmade stainless exhaust was a key step. This, paired with aggressive styling, stunt-inspired bars and controls, bring the bike to an unprecedented level of comfort, ability & aesthetics.

This beautiful bike evokes the feelings of days gone by, living up to its name “Classic Elegance”.

With 17 factory accessories, 22 Indian engravings and emblems it’s impossible to confuse this bike's classic linage. Custom bags, tank and the striking 26" billet spoke wheel complete the transformation of this legendary bike.
