Indian Motorcycle has announced a new custom version of the Indian Sport Chief, built for MMA fighter T.J Dillashaw.

The new custom Indian Sport Chief is the second ‘Forged’ custom from Indian, leaving one more to be revealed as part of the American manufacturer’s three-part video series.

The bike was designed and built by Jake Cutler from Barnstorm Cycles, and features a whole host of custom components, from a narrower tank and knee cut outs, to custom upholstery on the seat. The paint is also unique, finished by Blue Moon Kustoms and with colour-matched wheels.

Jake Cutler said: “The end result of the bike is pretty much how I mapped it out. The colours are where I wanted them to be, the design is what I was hoping it would be.”
