Turbocharged Indian Scout

This unique turbocharged Indian Scout is the work of Fullhouse Garage Shop in Stockholm, Sweden. The firm created it by bolting a Garrett T25 turbo to a 2016 Indian Scout engine in a one-off hardtail frame.

Turbocharged Indian ScoutThe men behind the bike are Anders Lundgren and Lasse Sundberg. They say it’s a tribute to the Swedish co-founder of Indian, Oscar Hedström.

Unsurprisingly it’s a memorable ride; Lungren says: “It feels amazing, like you have moved back to the 1920s with a rocket between your legs.”

While you might expect a bike with 1920s styling like this to make 15 or 20hp, the turbocharged Indian engine makes 150 to 200hp. You can alter the output by adjusting the boost pressure.

Lundgren says: “We wanted to build a bike that was related with the Indian history of board track racing and at the same time included the new era of technology that Indian stands for today. The Scout model was the perfect choice and we came up with the name Super Scout to honour the old Scout models that were almost unbeatable on the race tracks.

“We wanted to give the bike some extra boost of power and to also show that we can combine an old school look with modern technology.

“I am still test riding the bike and we are just in a phase to finish the engine tuning. The Super Scout is planned to be a daily runner…if it’s not already sold by then.”
