Dubbed “Rage,” this one-off build was created for Stereophonics member Richard Jones.

Indian Motorcycle boasts the most famous lineup in motorcycle history. Both then and now, this American brand builds some of the most famous motorcycles on the road. In addition to their unique appeal and outstanding performance, Indan bikes also serve as excellent platforms for one-off custom builds. A case in point is this custom his Indian Sports Chief called “Rage”.

This unique build was created for Richard Jones, bassist, keyboardist and vocalist of British rock band Stereophonics, in collaboration with the talented craftsmen of British custom builder Krazy Horse. Krazy Horse has a wide range of custom builds focused on the Indian cruiser series and the Rage is the latest addition to their ever growing collection. A Krazy Horse’s physique is usually a blend of form and function, and Rage is no exception. According to the manufacturer, the bike was built with British road conditions in mind, with a more “British look and feel” design hint.

Indeed, there are differences between British and American culture. Custom choppers tend to be adorned with chrome accents to accentuate their glitz, while British bobbers such as the Triumph his Bonneville his bobber tend to be more understated and elegant. The final product from Indian Motorcycles and Krazy Horse is eye-catching yet focused on detail. As the saying goes, the devil is in the details and you could literally spend hours admiring every little detail that went into this build.

First of all, the cockpit is studded with tasteful parts from the custom bike parts manufacturer Wunderkind. These include new grips, clutch and brake levers, clutch and master cylinder covers, as well as footpegs and shifters. All of this works together to give the bike that factory bespoke look. Meanwhile, the bike also features a variety of bespoke one-off parts. Richard Jones himself participated in the design of the sand cast aluminum derby cover. There’s also a Buckland Automotive Engineering bespoke belly pan with integrated cooling fins to control the temperature of his massive 1,890cc engine.

As for the build aesthetic, Krazy Horse designed custom sandcast aluminum side covers to give the bike a unique look, while the turn signals were relocated to the front hood and rear fenders for a more refined aesthetic. Completing the build is a beautiful custom painting with a black and blue design and silver pinstripes by Pageant Paintwork. Meanwhile, the saddle is hand-painted with a custom tattoo design by Rich Jones.

Of course, to give the bike even more road presence, the Krazy Horse builders installed a custom OJZ Engineering 2-to-1 performance exhaust system and billet performance air cleaner.
