The Paradox of Big Bear Choppers [Photo Gallery]
With a 23” front wheel complementing the 20” rear, the Paradox looks quite massive and the nice flowing lines of the wraps around the chassis and rear side covers enhance this feeling in a very pleasant way. The long stance is furthermore increased by the long fork neck and 44-degree rake, true custom milestones.
A 20” (51 cm) seat makes stability when stopped a breeze even for shorter riders, while addressing the needs of those in search of a more “lively” feel while riding. The in-frame seat positioning also seems to improve handling and the good feel of the motorcycle.
The BBC Paradox can be ordered with the stock S&S V111 engine in either carbureted or EFI flavor, but an 117 X-Wedge is also available as an option. A BBC enclosed primary is standard, with a BDL open belt drive as optional equipment. A 6-speed Overdrive Baker gearbox makes sure the Paradox has plenty of low-speed torque and highway brawn, too. The belt final drive is the only choice.
The forged wheels can be optionally replaced with CNC models of choice, and custom chrome and paint jobs are also on the optionals list. Prices start at $49,900 (€38,000) and $53,400 (€40,740) for the Carb and EFI models, respectively.
