Sprint Scout

Mar 01 2018

The rebirth of the Indian Scout delivered a fresh breed of powerful middleweight cruisers to the industry. And our new Sprint Signature Series designed by John Shope of Dirty Bird Concepts takes the aggressively styled platform to a whole ’nother level.

Our "Sprint Scout" build project showcases the entire Sprint Signature Series to turn an otherwise stock Indian Scout into a pure speed-inspired custom, demonstrating the full collection’s ability to cohesively transform the Scout’s appearance.

To start the complete overhaul, our designers stripped the Sprint Scout down to its frame. The rear fender was chopped and sculpted for a racier look that feeds off the tight lines of the bolt-on Sprint Front Fender, Café Fairing, and Chin Spoiler. We also cut and modified the factory belt and countershaft sprocket covers for a rugged semi-exposed appearance. Then we added satin black Kuryakyn Heavy Industry Footpegs and Mirror, a custom engraved derby cover, powder coated factory covers, tracker-style bars, wrapped headers with Crusher Maverick 2.5" Slip-Ons, and more. Together, all the components contribute to the Sprint Scout’s aggressively styled demeanor.

The Sprint Front Fender, Chin Spoiler and Café Fairing all come fully prepped and ready to paint to fit any custom color scheme, making it easy to match the deep gloss black base applied to the tank and reshaped rear fender. Kuryakyn-red pinstriping and graphics laid down over the black base enhance the smooth-flowing lines and scalloped contours.

Mustang Seats delivered on a one-off handcrafted seat based on an existing pan for the Scout, with custom stitch pattern, color and high-tail profile drawn up by Kuryakyn designers. Progressive Suspension also stepped up in support of the project with their high-performance 970 Series Piggyback Reservoir Shocks, and Performance Machine helped finish off the Sprint Scout’s ground-pounding stance with a set of their striking contrast cut Formula wheels.

“John is truly a builder who thrives off his ability to think outside the box. He displays a very hands-on, creative approach when it comes to designing trendsetting new products that push industry progression, and he’s been heavily invested in this partnership in terms of both time and energy. We were thrilled to have him alongside us representing Kuryakyn and the Sprint Scout in Sturgis.”
-Holger Mohr, Kuryakyn President

The Sprint collection by John Shope is the first release in the Kuryakyn Signature Series, which showcases skillfully crafted designs from the world’s top custom bike builders. All products are produced exclusively by Kuryakyn and are available through our worldwide dealer and distributor network.

“I wanted to partner with Kuryakyn because of their ability to go from design to finished product quickly, efficiently and with top-notch quality. I design a part, hand it off to them and can move on to my next big project knowing they’re going to deliver fast. I thought the Scout deserved a look that represents an aggressive race style, and this build and collection fit the image I had in mind.”
-John Shope, Dirty Bird Concepts
