Indian Motorcycle unveiled its one-of-a-kind custom 2014 Chief Vintage motorcycle yesterday at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, Calif.
The Company will donate the ‘No 7’ serial number machine to support "Operation Ride Home," a partnership program between Jack Daniel's Distillery and the Armed Services YMCA designed to help junior enlisted service members and their families travel home this holiday season.
For 2014, the inaugural year for the new Indian Chief built in Spirit Lake, IA, the first 1,901 units were specially badged with commemorative serial numbers. The ‘No. 7’ serial number off the line was a red Indian Chief Vintage model -- the bike donated by Indian Motorcycle to the “Operation Ride Home” program. Brian Klock's creative team at Klock Werks in Mitchell, SD added hand-laid pin striping, Jack Daniel’s logos, the Operation Ride Home logo and a customized seat combine to reflect the special nature of this custom motorcycle. The No. 7 Operation Ride Home custom bike was unveiled to the press at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach on Friday, December 6.
The bike will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson, one of the world’s leading auctioneers of classic vehicles, at Scottsdale, AZ, on January 12-19, 2014. The Serial No. 7 Indian Chief Vintage motorcycle will be on display at upcoming International Motorcycle Shows, where thousands of motorcycle fans will have a chance to view it. Proceeds from the charity auction will be donated to support the “Operation Ride Home” program administered through the Armed Services YMCA.
