When we last wrote about Curt Winter’s Big Twin Racers, we showed you some in progress photos of his “Carver” prototype. Well Curt has come quite a way since then and has decided to offer his bikes in kit form for the builders out there who want to build a bike but can’t see themselves on a chopper. Curt’s bikes are definitely not choppers. These are sport bikes using the same V-Twins the chopper guys use, he just thinks handling shouldn’t be an afterthought. Curt says frame design would be standard but the customer could choose engine size, wheels and solo or two up seating. It would be shipped bare and unassembled, allowing the customer to paint and do all of the final assembly.
I think it’s a great idea and judging from these new photos of the completed bike, it might be just what the bike building market is looking for.
Curt’s built a number of bikes and is currently building a street going super moto powered by a Yamaha XS-650 twin.
Curt has a new website up so you can contact him directly if you’re interested in building a bike that actually goes around turns. Check it out and give Curt a call. Tell him The Kneeslider sent you.
