Indian have teamed up with Jack Daniel's to create a limited edition Chief model to celebrate the whiskey giant’s 150th anniversary, with Brian Klock of Klock Werks taking care of the final customisation and design work.
The bike will be produced in very limited numbers, and features Jack Daniel's inspired paint, logos and badging. The fender has also been inscribed with the names of the seven Master Distillers that have overseen Jack Daniel's production over its 150-year history.
“We’ve inscribed this unique collector’s edition masterpiece with our ‘Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix’ mantra to remind all our friends that drinking and riding are meant to be enjoyed separately,” said Dave Stang, Director of Events and Sponsorships for Jack Daniel’s.
This bike is the first in a series to be made by Indian and Jack Daniel's celebrating the anniversary and will be auctioned in October at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Las Vegas. Money raised from the auction will be going to the JD-supported ‘Operation Ride Home’ initiative, run by the American Armed Services YMCA charity, which provides funding and travel assistance to junior-enlisted military personnel so they can spend time with their families during the holiday season.
There’s no word yet on production dates, but further details will be released during Daytona Bike Week, which takes place from March 4-13.
