Indian Larry‘s Wild Child Motorcycle – $750,000
Handbuilt in Brooklyn, New York, for the Discovery Channel “Biker Build-Off” series, “Wild Child” is considered by many to be the pinnacle of Indian Larry’s artistic achievements. It features his signature dished tank, root beer metal flake paint, twisted down tube frame, and a truly unique engine with a shovelhead front cylinder, panhead rear, and jockey shift. An open belt drive is emblazoned with the “Wild Child” name.
Brass accents and a handcarved leather seat in Indian Larry’s likeness complete the picture of this motorized masterpiece. In 2003, Larry rode “Wild Child” from St. Louis, Missouri, to Sturgis, South Dakota, where Larry’s bike was named the winner of the Build-Off, one of three unprecedented consecutive wins for the chopper enthusiast. A second gift offered by Indian Larry, “Question Everything”, is modeled after Indian Larry’s famous “Daddy O,” featuring a twisted springer front end, a handmade Indian Larry wishbone frame with a signature mustang tank, 93 cubic-inch shovelhead engine, and hand-painted platinum-leaf flames.
In 2003, Larry rode “Wild Child” from St. Louis, Missouri, to Sturgis, South Dakota, where Larry’s bike was named the winner of the Build-Off, one of three unprecedented consecutive wins for the chopper enthusiast. Upon learning of his triumph, Indian Larry famously declared, “There are no winners! There are no losers!” He shared his victory with fellow competitor Billy Lane, and then they both cut the trophy into pieces, signed the scraps, and handed them out to the crowd.
The fantasy gift can be purchased exclusively at Neiman Marcus.
