About Sportsaman Flyer
"The “Sportsman Flyer Company” started not as a business, but as a hobby. I have built and collected cars and bicycles for years and have always wanted to add a Schwinn Whizzer motorized bicycle to my collection. While keeping my eyes open for just the right bike I started seeing motorized bicycles around with newer two stroke engines. I decided to build one and found a vintage Schwinn Panther frame to start with. This particular frame, commonly called a straight bar frame because of it's unique middle frame tube in the front triangle, is very similar in shape to early motorcycles."
Bottpower has a deep know-how acquired in Motogp, WSBK and the CEV (Spanish Championship), which is used to design and build concept motorbikes, from race prototypes to street legal motorbikes. From a single unit till short series. The BOTT XR1 is one of those examples.
This first XR1 has been customized with a lot of elements. The silencer instead of the original one they used a Torque Hammer which is smaller, lighter and improves the engine performance a little bit. Besides the silencer, the front fork and 8 pistons brake caliper are from a Buell 1125. Front master cylinder and clutch lever are from ISR (including the push buttons). The bike aslo has a Motogadget display, and an Easton handlebar. Rear shock is an Öhlins from the Buell 1125 race kit.
Both the chassis and the subframe have been clear coated in such a way that you can see the welding cordons.
