If you’re like me, you got rid of your good twin a long time ago and have been living out their life for them ever since. That’s what we evil twins are for—at least according to every soap opera and sci-fi franchise in history. We’re as cliché as it gets. If you want to see a different take on twins, you’ll have to get a gander at the Evil Twins built by Carey Hart and Roland Sands for the Buffalo Chip.

Yeah, these bikes were made for this thing called "riding."

Even as we speak, everyone who’s anyone is getting ready for Sturgis. Roland and Carey, who aren’t busy enough apparently, decided they needed one more cool project on their respective heaps o’ work. They’ve molded identical 2017 Indian Scout Sixty motorcycles into wicked racing machines for the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Moto Stampede Bike Giveaway. Before being given to two fans on the Chip’s Wolfman Jack Main Stage, these two hooligan racebikes, known as the “Evil Twins,” will face off during the RSD Super Hooligan races presented by Indian Motorcycle at the Buffalo Chip Moto Stampede on Wednesday, August 9. Fans may enter to win the bikes online now at buffalochip.com/eviltwins.

Although they can take a beating in the dirt, each Indian Scout is beautiful to look at also.

“The stories these Evil Twins will tell will be unlike any others out there,” according to Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “Designed, built, and raced by the biggest names in motorcycling and racing, these Indian motorcycles will sport real battle scars from having been run in Super Hooligan races. You just can’t buy a bike with history like that, but you could win one.

“The Scout Sixty is already a force to be reckoned with, and now Roland and Carey’s modifications will truly add to the fun that can be had on these bikes,” said Reid Wilson, marketing director for Indian Motorcycle. “We can’t wait to give away these bikes on the Buffalo Chip’s main stage and pass on the good times after the Moto Stampede races.”
