Big Bear Choppers GTX-F: What the F…


The Big Bear Chopper GTX-F looks... interesting?

Pics: Motorcycle USA

We’ll admit we aren’t exactly crazy about custom cruisers here at F&F. However, the Big Bear Choppers GTX-F got our attention because it looks rather… interesting? Well, all right, not everyone’s going to like it, but for those who might be looking for something that’s a bit offbeat, hey, maybe the GTX-F isn’t so bad!

Motorcycle USA’s Bryan Harley recently rode the US$41,000 GTX-F and came away reasonably impressed with the bike. ‘As far as function goes, the ride-quality is admirable. It’s well-balanced, especially considering its length, and the motorcycle is capable of lean angles that I’ve never experienced on a factory-custom before without dragging hard parts. The GTX-F has all the right pieces to the puzzle, but range, storage, and seat comfort prohibit it from being a full touring machine. For short jaunts, however, or to be the centre of attention at your local bike nights, the GTX-F fills the bill,’ he says.

Well, it's not trying to conform to anyone else's idea of what is 'beautiful' and that's all right with me. At least it looks better and has more character than the thousands of anonymous Japanese Harley-wannabe cruisers I've seen!
