Carey Hart Custom Indian Chief revealed as perfect ride for The Walking Dead actor
Statistically speaking, Jon Bernthal is known to have appeared in some 70 films and TV shows, ranging from the most recent Sopranos spin-off, “The Many Saints of Newark” to the very old “Boston Legal”. For me personally, however, it won’t always be Lee Iacocca of “Ford v Ferrari”, but Shane Walsh of “The Walking Dead”.
Aside from having a passion for acting, Bernthal also has a passion for two-wheeled rides, which made him the perfect choice for freestyler Carey Hart when he set out to create an Indian Chief. unique, as part of the short series of similar constructions. who saw chefs converted by people like Paul Cox, Keino Sasaki and Go Takamine.
The bike you see here, an Indian with an attitude, is meant to be “Humble but elegant” and this effect was achieved by keeping it simple, but at the same time unique, especially since this is the first time Hart has been tasked with riding a motorcycle for someone else.
The Chief’s original engine and other important mechanical parts remain original, but they are reinforced by the addition of several important hardware parts, such as the Fab 28 2-into-1 stainless steel exhaust system. , Fox piggyback shocks and San Diego custom wheels wrapped in Dunlop tires.
Covered in a special shade of black paint, the bike is a specialist hardware collection, with a number of reputable stores supplying it with end caps: Kraus (bar clamps, risers, and gauge holder), Beringer and Galfer ( braking equipment), or Rizoma (mirrors and lights).
“There are so many things that excite me about this. The basic configuration of it is perfect. Where’s the handlebars, how he lifted it up a bit, “ the actor said in a statement.
“I wanted this to be exactly what it is. I wanted him to be humble but elegant. I didn’t want the bike to draw too much attention to itself, but when you take a closer look at it you realize how special it is. I think it’s beautiful. I can’t imagine a more perfect bike. Can’t believe I can drive this thing.
The release of the Bernthal Chief marks the end of India’s customization programs for this year, and we’re all looking forward to what the bike maker has planned for next year.
