Love the front ends on both of the Curtiss bikes, reminds me of the billet forks available on the Ariel ACE. Got a bit of a thing for modern girder forks and old for that matter. Haven't seen a good version on the Bobber yet but I'm sure it'll come

Not a big fan of that, but I do like what BMW are doing with the R18

Would sir like some motorcycle with his engine?



I like the styling but the cylinder heads are just too big for my tastes and you're going to get toasty shins with your feet tucked in behind them.

haha yes, I agree. This is only their concept bike, so I'm sure those things won't be as prominent as those suckers.

There's lot to add on yet too, indicators, licence plate, tasteful reflectors to spoil those beautiful forks.

Does look like it's come out of a custom house rather than the manufacturer though which is great. Mind you, the original Bobber concept was a little different to the end result and that worked out OK.
