Indian Chieftain is the legendary motorcycle customized by Roland Sands. He has developed a luxurious new 1811 cc V-twin Thunder Stroke engine that produces 19 ft-lbs of torque. Roland Sands, who knows a lot about engines, this unit considers a work of art, so he uses it to build a vintage custom bike.
Roland Sands tried to combine modern engine “Indian Thunder Stroke” and old-school chassis inspired motorcycles category “BOARD Tracker.” The result is a custom Indian Track Chief.
Roland says that “The inspiration came from a drag bike rendering that Sylvain from Holographic Hammer sent to me”. “I ended up tweaking it into a board tracker, adding the single sided element and all the detailing. But we retained the spirit of the tank shape, girder fork and frame.”
