Sprint Build Battle Spotlight: Lynnwood Motoplex

Lynnwood Motoplex (Northsound Indian Motorcycle) took us back in time with their Sprint Build Battle entry. Their crew channeled its inspiration from the old Indian 841 produced from 1941 to 1943 that specialized in desert warfare. However, Lynnwood’s build incorporates a slew of modern amenities to wage war on the streets and hilly terrain of the Pacific Northwest. Raised suspension for plenty of ground clearance, Progressive Suspension 444 Series Shocks, and custom spoke rims with aggressive racing tires makes this green machine a true road warrior in disguise. Read more about their inspiration below, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite entry at www.kuryakyn.com/sprint-battle.

KURY: What was the inspiration behind your Sprint Scout build design?

LM: My inspiration was to bring back the old military look of the 30’s and 40’s, but make the bike a modern rider’s bike.  We actually raised the suspension and put custom wheels and racing tires on it so this bike can really corner. We wanted this to be a rider’s bike. It has massive ground clearance so nothing can scrape, yet plush Progressive Suspension shocks so you could ride this thing all day! We also added a 9-inch L.E.D. headlight and loud exhaust to give the rider added safety.

KURY: What is the one design feature your team is most proud of?

LM: We are most proud of the rear fender and sub-frame.  We raised the entire motorcycles suspension by 2 inches, but lowered the rear frame and fender 3 inches to give it that low, custom look. But in reality the bike is actually taller. We then removed the factory location of the rear taillight and smoothed the entire fender so it had that old-school look.

KURY: What do you like about the Kuryakyn Signature Series Sprint parts?

LM: The Sprint Signature Series parts are really easy to install.  They need zero modifications and really have a nice look.  They are also really affordable for the “average Joe.” Anybody could grab these accessories from my dealership for a really affordable price and give their bike a fully custom look.

KURY: Tell us about your dealership – why should riders visit your store?

LM: We feel like Lynnwood Motoplex is the Northwest’s flagship Indian Motorcycle dealership. Our staff rides these bikes, builds these bikes and lives this brand.
