ATC-Impressed “BW110” Flat Observe Pit Bike by A&J Cycles…
What number of of you bear in mind the Honda FatCat? Within the mid-Nineteen Eighties, three-wheelers had been all the craze, together with Honda’s red-hot ATC “All Terrain Cycle” vary. For 1986, Huge Crimson launched the TR200 FatCat — basically a bike model of the favored ATC200X, that includes the identical 200cc four-stroke SOHC single-cylinder engine with two wheels as a substitute of three. The outcome was much like Yamaha’s BW “Huge Wheel” line, with 11-inch ATV-style wheels and tires:
“The suspension was padded out by the massive, pillowy off-road tires from the ATC line, and it was apparently a boss in sand and dust.” –RideApart
Solely accessible in 1986-87, FatCats are uncommon beasts lately. Nonetheless, should you’re hankering for some large wheel enjoyable, the great people at BVC Trikes have developed Huge Wheel kits for a wide variety of contemporary dust bikes (in addition to Trike kits!). Not too long ago, the CRF110 package caught the attention of Brian Ballard at New York’s A&J Cycles, who thought it will make the proper pit bike for the flat monitor races — and for his son to trip. Says Brian:
“Noticed BVC Trikes submit that they had been creating the package and needed to have one.”
The package included a brand new swingarm, triple bushes, wheels, disc brake conversion, and an offset sprocket. In fact, that is A&J Cycles we’re speaking about — builders of a few of nation’s sweetest trendy Triumph customs and flat trackers — in order that they weren’t glad with simply the package.
They outfitted their newly christened “BW110” with an LED ATC250R rectangular headlight, ATC200X entrance fender, stiffer suspension, Yoshimura exhaust, BBR skid plates and bolstered cradle, Throttle Jockeys seat cowl, and a customized wrap from Jamie at R Nyne Designs, which harks again to the Honda ATC trikes of the Nineteen Eighties.
The outcome is likely one of the baddest, most attention-grabbing pit bikes we’ve ever seen, and A&J Cycles isn’t completed but. This Honda “BW110” is in line for a major energy enhance:
“The subsequent steps are a 132cc Huge Bore package together with new cam, throttle physique, consumption, injector, and tune from CJR Efficiency.”
