Keep in mind you have to fill out the vote info on the page I linked to above. The other submissions are here: https://www.indianmotorcycle.com/en-us/the-wrench/

Vote for your Top Builder

Submissions were collected from those who build for the passion, not the paycheck. Now it is time to vote for the top three builders to create a one of a kind Scout Bobber. Winners will be selected using a combination of fan votes and our panel of judges.

Indian Motorcycle will arm the selected top three builders with a new 2018 stock Indian Scout Bobber and provide a build budget of $10,000. The three custom Scout Bobbers will be unveiled in July, followed by a fan vote. The winner will be announced at the Legendary Buffalo Chip during the 2018 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

About the builder

The devil is often in the details when you look at a bike Christian has built, and it’s all details. Spending his days engineering mining equipment, he has access to a huge variety of tools and the expertise to use them. While a couple of the bikes he’s built in the past have seen some media attention, he fits the spirit of this competition to the T. He wants to utilize the Scout Bobber’s dynamic chassis with some old-school custom components and raw metal fabrication.

All I have to say is that $10k better not have to include labor costs… :ugh:

Daily bump. You can vote once a day.


#18

Voted. He is up against some stiff competition, especially Alfredo Juarez who got a lot of IG love when voting first opened up. I’m a big fan of all 3 finalists to be honest.

I like it, the sci-fi fan in me thinks it looks wild. But that seat… I just can’t get over that seat. This bike is meant to be looked at not ridden:

I’m also a sucker for Cafe’s too. All 3 are great, going to be a tight race. I think the masses are going to care a lot less about the details that make Newmans stand out, vs the overall aesthetic of the other two, despite having off the shelve parts ( PJ) or being completely un-rideable (Alfredo), lol .
