Desert sled style checkered seat for project Townsmoker

We moved project Townsmoker to the Rusty Gold shop. While I'm waiting for my gas tank to be painted I'm playing with tape on my seat. Hot or not? I'm thinking of doing bigger checks, this seems a little much...

Just to get an idea how it looks with a gas tank I put an xt500 tank from the shop on the bike. :))) 

The plan now is to get it on the road in a few weeks, it won't be perfect but I can finish the details later on while riding. It's about time, the last time I rode this thing on the road is nearly 3 years ago!

Indian is going to produce a street legal Scout FTR1200

Look what I found on the Indian website!
"The Scout FTR1200 Custom is an exploration of what a street-legal tracker could look like."
A.K.A.: We are working on a production bike right now, and it will be probably for sale in 2019. And just like the normal Scout they will probably release the FTR Sixty 2 years later and hopefully a 750 version too!
Dang!!! I need to start making some serious money to buy this thing! Ha!

Indian FTR1200

Indian did what we have all been dreaming about, they showed an Indian Street Tracker "concept", the FTR1200 at Eicma 2017. I think it looks even better than the race only version with this updated tail peace. The headlight construction is brilliant, damn this thing is sexy. Best street tracker concept I've seen so far. The response so far has been so extremely positive, I think it's just a matter of time before they will show us a production version. It probably won't have the carbon stuff all over and the rsd wheels. Let's hope they keep the 19" front and rear, that would be a game changer. If they will make a 750cc version, I promise I will sell everything I have to get one of these! A FTR Sixty like they did with the Scout would also be good enough for me, haha! :)

Now stop teasing us and build the damn thing Indian!!!
