Curt Winter of BTR is a hardcore competition motorcycle builder. He specialises in 200 bhp, nitromethane-fuelled hill climb bikes—so when he turns his hand to road machines, he’s not likely to build a laidback cruiser. The bike in the picture uses a Harley-Davidson Twin Cam 88 for power, bolted to a lightweight frame designed by Curt himself. The motor is rubber-mounted and unstressed, allowing for a longitudinally rigid frame, stiff swingarm and much better handling. It makes the TC-Sport one of the most performance-oriented big twins available to the public, helped by racing style geometry, an aggressive riding position and top shelf components from Öhlins and Brembo. If you’re into the all-American big twin but fancy something rawer than Harley and Buell’s wares, BTR are the guys to call. All bikes are custom built, but bank on shelling out $26-28,000.
