Many big brands nowadays like to celebrate their existence by creating special editions of their past products. Some even make new products in honor of the occasion. Car makers can make decked out versions of their old cars, phone makers may start selling an old phone with an updated look. Even beverage makers like Coca Cola can launch new flavors to commemorate their presence. Jackdaniels had a different idea though.
They didn’t want to appear limited in their approach. Therefore, they went ahead and contacted Indian Motorcycle. Now, Indian Motorcycle was the first American motorcycle company. Similarly, Jackdaniels was the first American distillery. Naturally, they hit it off.
They liked each others’ company to the point that they have made a special edition Jackdaniels bike for the fourth time. All of which have been customized by Klock Werks Kustom Cycles of Mitchell, SD. Every edition from this collab was limited and expensive. The individual bikes themselves are detailed below.
The 2016 150th Anniversary edition bikes
In 2016, Jackdaniels and Indian unveiled two bikes to celebrate JD’s 150th anniversary. One was the Jackdaniels’ limited edition Indian Springfield. The other one was the Jackdaniels’ limited edition Indian Chief Vintage. Out of the 150 built; Chief Vintage #001 sold for a staggering $150,000 in an auction.
The 2017 Jackdaniels’ Indian Chieftain
This special edition Jackdaniels bike came with a bespoke black-and-white crystal paint job. Along with it were Jack Daniel’s-inspired charcoal accents, a bunch of JD’s “Old No. 7” logos, a 200-watt premium audio system, 7-inch Ride Command infotainment screen, and other amenities. It was so well received that when it went for sale, it sold out in 10 minutes.
The 2018 Jackdaniels’ Scout Bobber
