Indian Motorcycle Releases Next Episode of Scout Custom Series Featuring Brittney Olsen

Excited to share the next episode of Indian Motorcycle’s Forged custom build series! Utilizing the all-new Indian Scout as the base, Indian Motorcycle has tapped three renowned builders to fabricate one-of-a-kind custom bikes – each pulling inspiration from legendary stories of iconic Indian Scout riders. 

Olsen, a champion American antique motorcycle racer and founder of 20th Century Racing, has been on a mission to preserve and honor the legacy of early American motorcycle racing, bringing her passion and enthusiasm to every project with the aim of inspiring others.


From an upbringing surrounded by machine tools in her father’s fabrication workshop, Olsen was primed for a future in racing, restoration and customisation, but it was meeting drag race legend, Shirley Muldowney that made Olsen realise that women could be racers too and which really set things in motion for Olsen.


With the role model of Shirley Muldowney, Olsen has been championing the women of American motorcycling from the early 1940s and 1950s ever since, and one rider in particular, Cecilia Adams, is the source of inspiration for Olsen’s Forged Indian Scout.


Indian Motorcycle’s Forged custom build series highlights how customization and personalization was at the forefront when Indian Motorcycle designers and engineers began developing the next evolution of Indian Scout. The Scout’s new steel tube frame delivers an approachable platform for customization, as the tank, fenders and subframe can be easily removed and replaced.


Indian Motorcycle’s Forged custom build program is a six-part video series highlighting three unique interpretations of the all-new 2025 Indian Scout, inspired by the stories and personalities that have made the Scout such an icon for more than a century. Each design and development video will roll out in the coming weeks, while final reveals will take place later this summer.
