All new 2022 INDIAN CHIEF FOR Ex-cross professional builds for film star JON BERNTHAL. 


Indian continues its series of custom conversions with a custom item for actor Jon Bernthal. The project was implemented by Customizer Carey Hart. Jon Bernthal is an actor and is known to many for his leading role in the US series "The Walking Dead". Bernthal is also a passionate motorcyclist. The US motorcycle manufacturer Indian had the actor tailor a dream bike for the new Indian Chief as part of his custom bike program. Carey Hart, ex-cross-country driver and customizer and, since 2006, husband of the US singer Pink, was commissioned to do this.

More driving dynamics

Like the previous custom bikes from Paul Cox & Keino Sasaki and  Go Takamine , the Bernthal-Indian is intended to  show what is possible with the new Chief concept. For Hart it was immediately clear that the Indian Chief had to be dynamic and manageable. Therefore, only the add-on parts that are not required to meet these goals have been left out.


 Hart rated the 1,890 cm³ V2 engine as potent and easy-revving enough. Accordingly, the 116 was only equipped with a new, quite revealing 2-in-1 stainless steel exhaust system from Fab 28 on the exhaust side. One inch longer, fully adjustable Fox struts with reservoirs provide more ground clearance. Hart moved the front fork with a new set-up.


New, lighter alloy wheels at the front and rear promise better handling. Flanged to it are Galfer Wave brake discs that work together with Beringer brake calipers. The chassis tuning is rounded off with new Dunlop tires.


Casual ergonomics

A new footrest system, a one-piece, heavily stepped bench and the tubular handlebar, which is raised with long risers and which holds the digital cockpit via new holders, ensure a relaxed seating position. Hart complements the shortened front fender with an aluminum engine 
guard in front of the frame. 


The conversion is rounded off by new mirrors, mini turn signals in the front, turn signal-taillight combinations on the cleaved rear as well as a side-mounted license plate and numerous pimped-up screw heads. The corresponding hardware comes from Rizoma. New covers on the engine covers and an individual paintwork ensure the perfect look.
