Outback Cycles' Blue Ice, Half Chopper – Half Sport Bike
Here's one of their niftiest bikes, the Blue Ice. It hasn't won any awards yet, but this build is so intriguing and alluring. We might say it is a cross-bred sport-chopper machine, but there are so many other possible names for it.
The Blue Ice is powered by a Revtech 110 cui (1,802cc) v-twin which delivers 100 hp and is fed through Mikuni HSR 42 carbs with Mikuni filters. The gas trail ends in a 2-in-1 Shark silencer, on of the last items one could expect in a chopper-like build. The 6-speed Revtech gearbox comes with sprocket primary and chain secondary transmission so we can expect easy highway speed from this beauty.
Marchesini rims show with Avon tires are coupled to Brembo brakes in the Paioli USD fork and the rear shocks come from Progressive Suspension. Add in a premium Corbin seat, carbon fender and the €20,900 price tag and there you go: a bike with a strong character and killer, zero-compromise looks and top performance... and a design one just simply doesn't stumble upon every day.
