This THUG Won the Project Scout Contest

Indian Motorcycle dealerships in the UK were invited this year to build a customized Indian Scout or Scout Sixty in 90 days as part of a partnership with the UK's Motorcycle Live Show. And this THUG is the winner according to people's choice.

Ten dealerships took up the challenge to show off their imagination to an audience of over 110,000 visitors. There were no rules or restrictions on the bike theme, cost or build style, the only requirement being that a minimum three genuine Indian Scout accessories from the range of more than 200 items had to be used.

Thor Motorcycles dealership scored over 20% of the votes, putting their creation, THOR, in first place, and we have to say it's a damn gorgeous build. It's simple yet muscular and screams power just by sitting on the center stand.

“Most of the components were sourced by rooting through our stores and parts bins, aiming to keep the build as cost-effective as possible,” Colin Treleaven dealer principal at Thor Motorcycles said. “With the exception of the lighting, exhaust and a handful of official Indian accessories, anything that couldn’t be found in our shop was hand fabricated. One of hardest tasks was creating a machined spline assembly that extended the front sprocket to convert the final drive to a chain. THUG goes as well as it looks and we’ll definitely be riding it on the road.”

THUG features a beefed up suspension, comprising a USD fork at the front and performance rear shocks for added stability and better cornering. The rims are also different from the original, these reminding of oldschool dragsters and totally changing the overall appearance of the bike.

Next come some low-mounted clip-on bars for a sportier position, a single seat, custom short rear fender, custom lights and a beautiful unrestricted downswept short exhaust system leaving that V-twin to roar freely.

There are some other custom made parts fitted to the Scout, but I'll let you discover them yourself in the attached photo gallery.
