Curtis Racing Frames - Moto-cross

Honda Motorcycles were distributed in BC at that time by Clarke Simpkins Honda. When Honda released their Elsinore 250 and 125 cc moto-cross machines in 1973 many purchasers found that the suspension needed improving. Simpkins Honda provided us with parts to produce new swing-arms with more rear suspension travel. We also provided complete frame kits for the Elsinore 250.

Worthy of note:
This picture shows one such machine. We used a layout similar to the event-winning Husquvarna moto-crossers of the time. It proved to be very popular. We used a variety of rear shocks – Boge-Mulholland, Red Wing, Girling and Koni, to name a few.

If you have any information or pictures of Curtis Racing Frames from the period please Contact Us. We would really like to feature as many frames and frame modifications from that period as we can here.
