Back in 2017, Indian returned to professional flat track racing after a 6 decade hiatus. They absolutely dominated the American Flat Track (AFT) Championship, securing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the overall standings. AFT rules stipulate that the motors used in competition have to be based on production designs, so Indian created a limited run of 50 Scout FTR750s for homologation purposes. Here’s #2, and it has zero miles.
When the bike was first announced, customers had the option of selecting their own race number between 1-50, choosing from several paint finishes, and adding a front brake. In addition, Indian threw in a package including 2 VIP tickets to a 2018 AFT race, access to the Indian pits, and a flat track lesson from one of Indian’s Wrecking Crew: Jared Mees, Brad Baker, or Bryan Smith.
Per the seller, this is the first bike made available to the public (he claims that #1 was kept by Polaris for their in-house museum), and the only bike with the Allstate sponsorship logo as the company pulled their sponsorship between seasons. Progressive would end up taking over as a sponsor in 2019. It’s a cool bike, I just wish the photos in the listing were better.
