ROLLFAST: Rich History on 2 Wheels
Boerne, TX, USA


The collaboration with Bill Dodge of Bling’s Cycles and Jason Foster of Mission City Indian Motorcycle, both bring a rich history on two wheels. The passion and forward thinking of both make a great fit for the themed build inspired by Rollfast, a vintage bicycle company. The unique futuristic styling of the old bicycle company brings the perfect flare of larger wheels, tank panels, and cool handle bars.


Our inspiration from Rollfast was to bring something different to the table, more fun, and that’s what we’re doing with this Indian Scout project. We’re going to take something that most people take for granted, not the normal, by bringing it to life a little more. As Bill also spoke to a few Indian Scout owners, they said the only issue on the bike was that it didn’t have enough slow speed turning radius. That’s one major change Bill did by changing the trees and the front wheel, giving it a little more slow speed turning radius. Bill is also fabricating a seat and fender combo that follows the lines perfectly. When finished, our Project Scout will stand out in a crowd and out run the pack, as did our inspiration.
