Super-rare Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Chieftain revealed
Indian Motorcycle have revealed a second Jack Daniels special edition, and they’re only going to build 100 of them. What’s more, only ONE of the Limited Edition Jack Daniel’s Chieftains will come to the UK, with other countries in Europe also only getting one each. The bikes will go on sale globally tomorrow (March 14) at 6pm CET, and when you consider that the previous Jack Daniels limited edition of 150 units – based on a Springfield – sold out in just eight hours, you’re going to have to be fast to catch one.
Jack Daniel’s Chieftain highlights
- Only 100 will be made
- Only ONE bike is coming to the UK
- Designed in conjunction with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles
- Hand-painted and hand-built with delivery in August 2017
Each motorcycle comes with a commemorative American flag handcrafted out of Jack Daniel’s barrel wood that includes the owner’s name, motorcycle number and VIN. The individually numbered bikes come with a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty and free membership in the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group (IMRG) for one year.
The Limited Edition Chieftain had design input from Klock Werks Kustom Cycles of Mitchell, South Dakota who came up with a wide array of custom details such as the one-of-a-kind white and black crystal paint job with charcoal colored accents inspired by Jack Daniel’s unique charcoal-mellowing process. A number of Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 logos and custom badging is interspersed over the bike, including logoed billet rider and passenger floorboards, a leather tank pouch, aluminium tank console with motorcycle number and unique cam, primary and air intake covers.

The crowning detail is a handmade, pure silver Jack Daniel’s horn cover badge, hand-crafted by the team at Montana Silversmith, exclusively developed and produced only for this motorcycle.
Ironically, Jack Daniel’s are using the Indian as a tool to promote their “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” campaign.
The bike also features a 19-inch front wheel with an open fender and a host of premium touring amenities including LED headlight and driving lights, power adjustable flare windshield, gloss black front and rear highway bar, 200-watt premium audio system with fairing and saddlebag speakers, and Indian Motorcycle’s proprietary Ride Command infotainment system.
Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries commented: “Once again, Brian Klock and his team at Klock Werks Kustoms exceeded our expectations with a totally unique Indian Chieftain that combines a sense of exclusivity with a tough, aggressive edge. We couldn’t be happier with it.”
The bikes are expected to arrive with their owners in August 2017, and if you want the one UK bike, you need to speak to the good people at Robinsons Foundary, who have the priviledge of supplying the only JD edition in the country. Oh, and you'll need to hand them £33,799, too.
