Big Twin Racers

An early pioneer in building a sport chassis around a big twin engine is Curt Winter of Big Twin Racers.

Curt is an "enthusiast's enthusiast". Seldom do you find someone that covers this wide range of motorcycling at a high skill level:

  • fabrication skills
  • hands-on engineering
  • mechanical skill
  • ability to paint show-quality finishes
  • form his own carbon fiber parts
  • design & build an array of bikes
  • capable of racing in the dirt or on a roadrace course.


One of Curt's first big twin sportbikes was finished in 1997. Whoa, nearly ten years ago! Click on the article below & check the fine print. Also note that Curt got the attention of Erik Buell with this bike.

This bike was a 2nd iteration of the "Big Twin Racer" (BTR)

wouldn't wanna be on a high-strung 4 in front-of-a BTR....

[there's a road song in there somewhere....punk rockabilly, alt. country, metal....your choice]

This is his latest beauty. If you are interested in a custom bike but not a big twin sportbike, give Curt a call. He can build a wide variety of bikes including hill climbers, motards, cruisers, small road racers, etc. Curt designed, welded, painted, & assembled this entire bike himself, including creating the carbon fiber fenders. Look for an updated website and kit from him....

Think about pulling up to a bike hangout after romping through some winding asphalt and someone asking you who makes that bike ? Curt's answer would be...

I look forward to the updated website and seeing these types of bikes being built!
