Curtis Racing Frames

Curtis Vincent Motorcycle
This bike owned by TV personality Jay Leno in 1995 is one of the Curtis Vincent Specials built in 1974/75.

Mr. Leno purchased the bike from the original owner in North Vancouver. He made a few changes to the original equipment when he rebuilt the bike prior to this article supplied thanks to 'Classic Bike' of the UK.

The nose cone fairing has been removed, and the front brake assembly has been changed. On page 1 of the article, Mick Duckworth, author of this article, talks to Mr. Leno about the bike's designer Denis Curtis of Canada.
