Indian Motorcycle has partnered with former FMX star and award-winning vintage custom builder Danny Schneider for exciting future collaborations. While the details of the collaboration are still to be revealed, Danny’s personal affinity with Indian Motorcycle has been long-standing.
Born in August 1974 and growing up in Switzerland, Danny Schneider went from an early start in BMX to becoming an FMX star then switching direction to become an award-winning custom bike builder. Danny puts all of himself into anything he does and has bikes running through his veins, he could even wheelie at four years old.
With his natural talent for riding, Danny ventured into Motocross at 16 and by 20 he was competing in the extreme sport of FMX (Freestyle Motocross) to become a major force in the developing Swiss scene and a global FMX star. But then Danny had a huge practice crash that saw him in hospital for four months, a career-ending injury.
Now ranked among the best vintage bike builders worldwide, Danny is a major name in the custom bike world with fans in America asking for his autograph whenever he attends US shows. A big part of Danny’s appeal is that he never follows trends or gets stuck creating the same style of build. Whether you like café racers, flat trackers or classic choppers, Danny will have built something that will appeal to you. Including a beautiful 1931 Indian Scout which Danny built-in 2012.
