Cool look at the bird cage model chassis with the BMW Big Boxer Engine
Cool look at the bird cage model chassis with the BMW Big Boxer Engine – American custom builder, Revival Cycles, has launched the company’s latest chassis, called The Birdcage. But what matters here is not the chassis itself, but the engine used on The Birdcage uses a new BMW engine. The motorbike was revealed for the first time on the Handbuilt Show in Austin, Texas.
Birdcage uses a titanium frame, which is designed to provide maximum exposure to the Big Boxer engine, which is estimated to have a capacity of around 1800 cc, and is air-cooled. Many other parts of the motor, including handlebars, footrests and carbon suspension components are all made separately and presumably hand made. The entire assembly process takes about five months to complete.
“The chassis blended very well in the end and we were very pleased with the results, because achieving the goal was almost achieved. We wanted to focus on the engine and that’s what we achieved with this truly unique chassis. You can easily see the engine from all angles, “said Alan Stulberg, Head of Revival Cycles.
“I have always been a fan of boxers, but the pure physical size and appeal of the uniqueness of this prototype really inspired us,” said Stulberg.
The Birdcage is still a prototype, there’s no denying the fact that a big boxer engine will, sooner or later, be born with a BMW cruiser model chassis. This is the second time the big boxer engines from BMW are displayed on a custom build. In December 2018, the Zon Japanese Custom Works builder revealed a radical minimalist scrambler motorbike that debuted with the same big boxer engine.
