Not all hotrod fabricators are made equal and that’s definitely the case with Scott’s Hotrods n’ Customs. Located in Knoxville, Tennessee, their catalog features some incredible custom builds you won’t see anywhere else, but since we’re an aviation site, what caught our eye was a B-17 inspired Indian motorcycle.
Our mission is to deliver top quality, impeccable workmanship and well engineered suspension systems, complete chassis and award winning vehicles to our customers in a timely manner.
Owned by Carey Hart, this particular build was fabricated by Brycen Smith. As you’ll be able to see in the pictures below, master craftsmanship and attention to detail are at the forefront of their work. Down to the rivets, the sidecar becomes instantly recognizable as a B-17, something every aviation enthusiast can sure appreciate.
We found a YouTube clip from someone who went to the 2018 Daytona Beach Bike Week, Indian Motorcycle Extravaganza. It’s a 10-minute video but he started off with this beautiful B-17 build, and rightfully so. If you’re a bike guy, stick around to see everything else because some of these bikes are definitely unique.
