Following the Sturgis reveal of the new 2015 Indian Scout model, Indian Motorcycle chose a select few shops to customize a Scout. Klock Werks was one of the shops that accepted the opportunity, and decided the design lead of the project should fall to their youngest team member – Karlee Cobb.

“At just 14 years old in 2008, Karlee became the youngest person to set a land speed record at the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats”, says Klock Werks owner Brian Klock. “That same year she, her Mom and sister became the first Mother-Daughter-Daughter trio in land speed racing history to hold records at the same time and were named to a list of the 100 most influential women in land speed racing history. Karlee has grown accustomed to taking on challenges at a young age, and has gained a great eye for design through her years working at our family shop. We felt giving her the design lead on the customizing of this 2015 Indian Scout project would be a natural fit.”

“My goal was to design something that looks completely customized, but yet is simple enough that someone could do something similar to their own Scout in their garage,” says Cobb of her project she calls “Outrider”. “I was really blown away by the power and quality of the production Scout, so maintaining the ride-ability of the bike was really important to me. I decided to go for the old-skool bobber look, and I think it turned out great! I’ve got a great team of friends and family in and around Klock Werks, and want to thank Indian Motorcycle for the chance to be one of the first to customize this historic bike!”

“Outrider” was on display at the New York Progressive International Motorcycle Show at the Javits Center, December 12-14. Karlee, along with parents Brian and Laura Klock, were there with the bike to interact with the crowd and answer any questions about the project.
