Kraus Kyrgyz Reduces You to Humble Silence

Kraus are known for their radical approach to bike building and their machines are nothing short of spectacular. However, prepare for something really amazing: the Kyrgyz, a motorcycle which is as striking as it is beautiful.

Almost entirely hand-made from stainless steel and with a glorious polished nickel finish, the Kraus Kyrgyz is both evil and noble. The fluid Kraus frame houses a '65 80cui Panhead power unit mated to a 4-speed Revtech gearbox and despite the solid hardtail look, it comes with a rear suspension with 2.5-inch travel (6.35 cm). The huge springer fork has no triple tree and was raked to a hefty 45-degree angle, then loaded with custom BMX-style bars for a killer look.

If you take a good look, you'll see no levers, not for brake and not for clutch, and that's because Kraus went for their proprietary hidden Twist Brake and a foot-actuated clutch, with hand shifting, adding even more unique style to this amazing motorcycle and furthermore establishing new rules and borders to bike building.
