So how did this come about? “Me and another are the two think tanks here and we at what we had done already and we started looking at what we done,” said Kevin. always liked to do something completely different ‘cause I to lead the pack, not follow. was a part of the market that was one of the frontiers left.”

Ground were laid that into account handling as well as good looks. BBC are usually made from wall, large-diameter tubing, but in build, thin wall tubing was substituted. “The frame was a departure for us, the only thing with any bike built is the actual neck where the bearings sit,” Kevin. “The way we constructed the allowed us to do it without any structural That aforementioned neck at a modest 30-degrees (with an 4-degrees in the trees) with backbones, instead of a single tube, wrapping around the on their way aft to meet the widely downtubes on their trip the engine to the suspension point for the monoshock. Working BBC–engineered Sweden’s finest suspension is by a billet aluminum swingarm, 6” in an ode to custom Hayabusas, that’s out from behind in the name of

With a frame this it was only natural to turn to for a fork and not just any, but one featured the latest radial-mounted A Scotts Steering Stabilizer on the top triple-tree stands at the ready to any road induced quakin’ and Dual Brembo 4-piston tuck right in behind the legs while out back, a 4-piston stands ready to in as necessary.

Brembo provides power for the world’s finest racers, so they should just peachy here the twin floating discs. “If going to build something this, it’s going to the absolute latest, greatest stuff. We wanted the best and brakes,” said Kevin.

The that shocked me the most this bike was the realization of how big it was I read the spec sheet and the front BBC-made wheel was a and the back an equally large The bike’s proportions are such nothing looks out of the ordinary at glance, but then its size you. “It’s a massive It’s very deceiving in

How it sits and feels in person to other vehicles is even impressive,” said Kevin. “A big dude can actually fit on this and feel comfortable. When you see a 6’ on a sportbike, it looks like a on a football.” The deception continues the fairly huge rear 280 looking “normal-sized” in proportion to the of the bike.

The super-clean BBC bodywork has a few up its sleeve with twin tanks, one on top of the frame (with a oil tank also encased in and another under the seat. In the of the top tank are scoops for the downdraft and also an oil cooler is mounted to take advantage of the airflow. I liked the way the downtubes are delicately in bodywork.

It ties the whole unit with style and gives the of a sportbike fairing without heavy handed. The seat encompasses both the sportbike and in one piece that kicks up the of motion while stopped. A red base-paint scheme with leaf striping strikes eye and draws you in, but compliments rather overpowers the bodywork.

Prototype added a taste of trendy but carbon to the mix with its front and fenders that disappear in raw state.

Powering all this wizardry is an SS 114” X-Wedge some BBC Smooth technology in. Kevin has always been a of a square bore and … along with milder and the right cam timing and combined a lower RPM balance point to a smoother running, usefully engine. “One of the main that makes an engine run is a consistent flow of air,” Kevin.

Making his own downdraft EFI system so he didn’t have a huge hanging off the side and fabbing up an exhaust could have this all up. “We didn’t know how the ECU was to react, but it worked absolutely The bike didn’t stumble right from the day we fired it up. It was winning the lottery,” said laughing. Right now it makes and 100ft-lbs of torque.

These will be up significantly to 150hp and of torque (“that’s a wheelie hell,” said Kevin) the bike enters production a supercharger mounted on it. Yes I did say production, as doesn’t build one-offs and for we should all be thankful.

Big Choppers has been hanging through the slowdown in the custom with a game plan would make Vince feel comfortable. Vince has been credited with the “The best defense is a offense,” and that seems to sum up reaction to hard times.

There’s been a steady of totally different and extremely new models that are sure to anyone who is looking at purchasing a bike (and there are a lot of you out there) to put a BBC model on their list. It should come as no that BBC’s wild SS was conceived as a production model. Alsop seems to understand passion comes first motorcyclists and he constantly dangles in front of them that this passion alive of rehashing the same old designs and over.

“When we came out the G.T.X. we made a left When we came out with the we went a little bit back the way, but when we came out this thing, we just a right turn. People know what the hell going to come out with said Kevin. “Right now thinking about a trike.

Our would look really cool. We’re just everything lined up and ready for our when things turn here in the next six to eight We’re going to be sitting with the right stuff, working hard on dealer and process capabilities here in

Things aren’t bad at the moment as Kevin said,” We’ve got a bikes on order and we’re rippin’ through ‘em. got bikes going to Taiwan, and Germany. We can’t ….”
