ABOUT THE PROJECT

Miracle Mike is a nitrous-powered sprint racer built from a standard Indian Scout by the Young Guns Speed Shop. It takes its design cues from the old Indian hill climb bikes and flat track racers. In planning and building this motorcycle, Nik Heer and Fabian Witzig invested over 700 hours of work. All of the knowledge and experience from their past projects have gone into making Miracle Mike the most best-performing bike they’ve built with Nik saying it has been their most difficult and complicated build to date. He adds: “The original Miracle Mike was an incredible chicken which lived without its head for 18 months. We can’t think about anything that’s scarier to compete against than something you can chop the head off and it is still going strong!” Miracle Mike is Indian’s official entry in the two Essenza sprint races in 2017 and also in the Punks Peak Race during the Wheels & Waves festival.
