Zac Brown and Indian Motorcycle Team Up For ‘Chieftain Dark Horse’ Custom Bike

This kiler custom cruiser is being raffled off for a good cause.


Indian Motorcycle has joined forces with southern rocker Zac Brown and his design firm, the Zac Brown Collective, to create a unique limited-edition motorcycle that’s as loud as it looks. 

The Zac Brown Collective Chieftain Dark Horse is essentially a beefier Indian Chief Dark Horse with plenty of extra bling. 


At its core is a Thunder Stroke 111 V-Twin that’s been fitted with new cylinders, big bore pistons and a larger throttle body for a 15-percent increase in torque and a 20-percent increase in horsepower. 

The stock Chief Dark Horse’s murdered-out trim was swapped out for custom charcoal flake paint, 24K gold leaf accents and a satin clear-coat finish. 


More gold plates the engine components, while the seat and saddle bag liners were woven using a one-off fabric. Custom 21-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels cap the country-fried custom bike off.


Best of all, this beauty can be yours for a good cause. The Zac Brown Collective Chieftain Dark Horse is being raffled off with all proceeds benefiting Camp Southern Ground, a non-profit founded by the Zac Brown Band frontman that serves children with autism, dyslexia and other developmental challenges. 

“It’s incredible to be partnering with a brand as iconic and historic as Indian Motorcycle – a group of people that are clearly as passionate about craftsmanship as we are,” said Brown. 

“The custom Indian Chieftain Dark Horse is an example that craftsmanship is more than merely a labor of love, but truly an art form. We’re thrilled to channel the power of this incredible motorcycle to benefit Camp Southern Ground.”
