Being the third Chief custom build in RSD's stable, the Mescalero's giant Indian heart lends itself to virtually any style of bike, once you get past the sheer size of it. Board tracker, flat tracker and now, Chopper, the 111' is quickly becoming one of the RSD teams favorite power plants to use. It's the perfect blend of function and style and creates visual history when used in the right custom applications.
In addition to the stainless steel exhaust, the Mescalero's 111 rocks RSD's billet clarity covers and carries the theme blending traditional chopper style with modern CNC machined performance minded components.
The sheet metal and sissy bar were also designed and fabricated in-house. And Having to scream 70's highway-man, the Mescalero Chief received mile-high treatment with a 3' tall sissy bar made from high polished stainless steel mated to a King and Queen seat. And because no Indian is complete without it, mounted on the rear fender, a traditional Indian-head running light with a red LED keeps things legal. (ish)
One of the most unique elements of the Mescalero though is it's wheel and tire combination. It get’s traction care of a Heavy Hammer flat track rear wheel and hub set up straight from Indian's FTR Championship race program, as well a factory TT front hub set on a custom 21” traction wheel. It may be a chopper but it’s got race parts on it. And it's fast.
