Ninth Annual Brooklyn Invitational September 9. Customized Indian Scout Bobbers Will Be Unveiled By Keino Cycles, Steve Caballero With Roland Sands Design And Kraus Motor Co. 

Indian Motorcycle announced yesterday its title sponsorship of The Ninth Annual Brooklyn Invitational Custom Motorcycle Show held September 9, 2017 in Brooklyn, New York. Along with its sponsorship, Indian will unveil three custom versions of the all-new Scout Bobber crafted by Keino Cycles, Kraus Motor Co. and skateboarding icon Steve Caballero, in conjunction with Roland Sands Design. The all-new Scout Bobber was released during X Games weekend in Indian’s hometown of Minneapolis. A low-slung, blacked-out, minimalist motorcycle that proves less is definitely more.

“With its lean and mean, minimalist design, the Scout Bobber provides builders an ideal platform for customization, and we’re excited to see the creative interpretations brought to life by these three unique customizers,” said Reid Wilson, Marketing Director – Indian Motorcycle. “The Brooklyn invitational carefully curates an exhibition of incredible customs and from some of the world’s most renowned builders, providing the ultimate venue for us to showcase these custom Scout Bobbers and demonstrate the bike’s potential.”

Indian specifically chose these three well-known customizers, because each brings a uniquely distinct vision and signature style. The end result being three totally unique custom interpretations of the Scout Bobber. While Keino Sasaki and Satya Kraus carry long-standing reputations forged through years within the customization and aftermarket industry, skateboard icon Steve Caballero has seen his profile increase steadily within the motorcycle community thanks to his love for vintage American v-twins and his participation in festivals such as Wheels & Waves.

The Brooklyn Invitational is a motorcycle, photography and music showcase Builders appear by invitation only. Hosted at Root Studios, doors open on Sept. 9 from 1-11pm ET and tickets run for $15.

    can’t fault polaris for giving the brand one helluva an old college try in advertising.

    god, those metal stamped engine covers give the motor a truly ugly lifeless industrialized look. just can’t get used to it.

    If by “college try” you mean copying everything Harley does, then yes, they are 😉

    Here we go, Corporate greed ruining another great local event!!!!! This is a cool one day show in the heart of Brooklyn, ride in, park your bike out front have a beer. Sometimes the show in the street is better then inside. Lots of freaks, hippies and weirdos riding all manner of bikes.

    But now we will have the three ring circus, security, no doing anything except as told and in designated areas. I hate this shit, leave our life style alone. Go sell your water cooled bikes to people who want it. Pretty sure the chopper/long bike crowd is not interested.

    Rant over.

    The only thing Harley does well is marketing.Every producer is using that model.

    Architect,

    You are 100% correct. I was planning to visit the show next year, but I think this year may be the last year that it may (repeat MAY – as in it is likely too late already) not just end up a hideously overcrowed idiocracy, swamped by pretentious freaks without the faintest clue what they are looking at.

    In my opinion they should make the fee $150 – ie ten times more and only attract 10% of the people.

    Hardly the heart of Brooklyn. It’s hipsterville……
