Curt Winter of BTR Moto has created this custom jump bike for Big Ed Beckley of Checkered Flag Productions. Some of you may recall Big Ed’s jumps decades ago. He has been busy promoting numerous types of events including Pulling, Arena Cross, and Monster Truck nationals. Ed is also back to jumping and he is going to jump this custom bike this Father’s Day, June 16th at the Monster Truck Summer Nationals in Greeley, CO outside of Denver. A successful jump and a little dirt on this hand-built custom would be the finishing touches for something like the AMD bike show.
Curt built the frame and swingarm. He also re-machined the Barnett clutch pack and installed it on the main shaft with a custom case. The clutch is just used to disconnect power from the driveline since there is no transmission.
The bike uses a Showa fork and a WP rear shock. It rolls on Excel rims with billet hubs machined by TCR. Fluid tanks are also hand built by Curt.
The body work is from a Honda CRF450 but the strength comes from a 127” EVO-based Ultima motor that has approximately 140 bhp and a tractor-pulling 145 ft. lbs. of torque.
If you are in the Denver area this Father’s Day, go out and watch the big man fly his big jump bike.
