Grilling is extraordinary. Riding is wonderful. Grilling at the same time as using, however, is typically unwise. A high-quality, it’s probably illegal. More than probable, it’ll result in fiery damage, a ride to the clinic, and a gaggle of wasted meat. One mythical builder throws a warning to the smoke-crammed wind beside a custom motorcycle, not like every other. Legendary builder Thor Drake — a motorcycle customizer called if ever there was one — had a dream. He changed into seeking out a way to combine his love of two-wheelers with his ardor for grilling. Drake labored closely with the oldsters at Indian Motorcycle and Traeger Grills on a one-of-a-kind collaboration that the world did not know it needed.
From afar, the Indian x Traeger construct from See See Motor Coffee Co seems like some other excessive-end custom motorbike with a candy-searching sidecar. The matte black finish and muted accents only add to its stealth thing. Closer inspection shows the traditional lines of an Indian Springfield Dark Horse custom mounted to a Traeger Ironwood 885 wooden pellet grill. Drake’s concept includes custom mounts for grilling utensils and extra wooden pellets.
The companies are famend for crafting some of their industries’ maximum iconic, American-made merchandise. Indian’s inventory Dark Horse is powered by a Thunder Stroke 111cc V-twin riding on an aggressive, 19-inch, 10-spoke front wheel with blacked-out finishes at some point. The Traeger Ironwood boasts a chrome steel production with modern-day grill tech, double side-wall insulation, and a digital controller with Wi-Fi connectivity (severely) to hold tabs on your meals from your phone wirelessly. Frankenstein, the two together, changed into such an apparent stroke of genius; it’s a wonder nobody had the idea of it earlier.
The Indian x Traeger bike concept debuted in the final week of the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. For apparent motives, it will not be to be had for sale. With enough time, money, and understanding of metalwork, nothing stops you from handcrafting your own. However, our legal professionals would love us to recommend you not to try this.
