Azzkikr Frontier 111 Custom Indian Springfield Takes Things to the Next Level

The Frontier 111 by Azzkikr Custom Baggers is the first custom take on the all-new 2016 Indian Springfield that was recently introduced. The Indian bagger builds on the Chief platform, but the Frontier 111 takes things in a more radical direction.

Azzkikr's Len Edmondson wanted to make a bold statement with this debut Springfield and transformed it into a bike that's a real show stealer. Front leaf spring suspension, a skirted front fender, a jockey shifter accompanied by a foot clutch, and other striking details set the Frontier 111 apart from most of the Indian custom builds we saw since the brand returned to the spotlight.

The front end looks even more impressive thanks to the custom handmade headlight casing and its adjacent turn signals, dwarfed by the ample handlebar. The front wheel is a massive 26" unit and the fake hub, in fact, hides a modern dual-rotor brake system.

A custom triple tree was also required to accommodate the new fork, while a brushed aluminum piece now adorns the tank and houses the stock gauges.

Passing to the back, the Frontier 111 shows off in-house custom sidecovers that are flush with the removable, fully-functional saddlebags. The rear fender is also a custom fabrication, and it hides the stock wheel and the aftermarket air-ride suspension.Believe it or not, the cycling dynamics of the Springfield have not been modified, and the bike is just as rideable as a stock one.
"Everything on the bike aside from the triple tree was hand-made or manufactured in our shop to an OEM quality standard to fit on the Springfield's stock frame, so nothing on it makes any actual changes to the engineering of the present bike," Edmondson proudly says. "In other words, if I wanted to send parts to someone to reproduce this bike with a new Springfield, they could put it together using the same bolt patterns. That makes this build truly revolutionary," he concludes.

The color scheme evokes the bikes of the golden era, with a tame, yet incredibly classy combination of red, black and silver, neatly complemented by the polished and black accents on the engine.

Now, would you buy such a modding kit considering that Azzkikr can make one you can install in your garage?
