Indian Plus Harley Times Transylvanian Leather Equals Love [Photo Gallery]
Tony thought of bringing to life a daring project and he asked for the help of Destiny Cycles England for putting together a Harley Knucklehead engine and an old Indian frame. And when we say "old", we really mean it: look a the leaf-spring fork and you'll quickly understand this is no modern bike-building art.
While the mechanical preparation for this amazing bobber was easily dealt with, there was one detail missing: leather! And this is where the art of Romanian Sebastian "Basty" Codreanu comes in place.
Hailing from the very Transylvanian lands, Basty took good care of the Khief, adding top-drawer leatherwork to this uncanny bike. Tank straps, the amazing battery box screaming retro character, the custom stitched seat and the incredible cable/line runs, they were all made to fit the machine. And if you remember them, the ultra-cool leather-covered studded floorboards we told you about earlier this year.
While we love the Indian Khief wholeheartedly, we'd really like to see more leather art from Basty. Once more, the cable and line leather covers are just insanely cool!
