Tony Prust’s northern Chicago shop, Analog Motorcycles, has maintained a solid and steady presence in the custom motorcycle realm and garners much attention for his out-of-the-box-builds.
With all eyes on Indian Motorcycle’s relaunch of the iconic Scout, it’s refreshing to see vintage examples vying for attention too. And this eye-catching 1949 Scout from Analog Motorcycles should have no trouble stealing a little limelight.
Prust stumbled upon the bike while chasing up another lead. “A friend and I headed north to take a look at a Kawasaki W1,” he explains. “While we’re there, we see a rolling chassis and a pile of parts sitting on a bench in the corner. It was a 1949 Indian Scout with a title that the owner had had for seventeen years.”
Analog motorcycles started officially in the summer of 2009, however the idea has been there for years. Tony Prust, founder of Analog Motorcycles, has been riding and customizing motorcycles for over 15 years.
The attention to detail Tony has developed throughout this hobby, combined with his profession as a trim carpenter, is starting to result in incredibly beautiful motorcycles. His goal has always been to put together bikes that both look good and perform well.
Currently Analog is capable of small accessory installs to full custom bike builds, powder coating to fabricating and everything in between. We can find a specific bike to build your dream or you can bring us yours and we can tailor it to fit the look you want. No matter how old or new, we can restore or customize it.
