2013 Big Bear Choppers Screamin Demon

Posted on by  

The Screamin Demon is a modern bobber that draws inspiration from the classic motorcycles. The most strikng visual details of the Screamin Demon are its raised handlebar and the small peanut fuel tank.

However, despite its bold style, the Big Bear Choppers Demon is able to offer a decent handling thanks to its relatively short wheelbase.

The bike features a vintage wishbone style downtube, a spring saddle, a conservative 34° neck rake and a round oil bag. You’ll also like the low vibration V111 engine which is paired with a Baker 5-speed transmission. The engine puts out 115.8 bhp and 122.8 lb/ft of torque which is more than enough to help you deal effortless with traffic.

The bike’s suspensions are designed and manufactured in-house, and the company likes to say that its “retro inspired springer is aesthetically cool and functionally bomb proof.”

Big Bear Choppers Screamin Demon

Option #1 BBC-S&S V111™ Carb Evolution

Reliability, power and comfort... the best of all worlds. And when we say reliability, we not only mean the life of the engine, but the life of motorcycle and everything that’s bolted to it. Branded as V111™,’ this internally reformed 111 cubic inch engine boasts a healthy 122.8 lbs. of torque at the crank. With a configuration of a 4 1/8” bore and 4 1/8” stroke, proprietary compression ratios, redesigned cam timing, and reciprocating weights all result in an incredibly smooth running engine while meeting all the strict legal requirements. While looking like any other S&S Super Sidewinder engine from the outside, the essence of this new engine is the low vibration. High engine vibration is an enemy to both the rider and the motorcycle. The effects of high engine vibration may cause premature rider fatigue as well. Eliminate engine vibration and you will eliminate potential problems.

Drivetrain

Keeping with the mindset of making form and function coexisting, this newly designed proprietary primary is built tough and reliable along with a very sleek, new generation styled aesthetics with a cool BBC branded inspection cover. This primary drive is approximately 200% stronger than most other manufacturer’s primaries with its machined forged aluminum inner and outer cases. The dense aluminum material makes for a unit that does not flex under heavy torque, and absorbs most engine vibration. Another great attribute that sets this primary drive ahead of the curve is the triple seal design on the main shaft, as opposed to an industry standard single seal, insuring virtually no leaks. The starter motor shaft accessory plate is removable for an easy starter change-out. The internals utilize an easy-to-replace standard type clutch basket and a compensating sprocket for a smooth power transfer.

Electrical

We teamed up with Wire-Plus, the industry’s leader in motorcycle electronics, to design a wiring harness with no compromises. Combine this harness with the high-end brand name electrical components like the Cycle Electric charging system and the Dynatech ignition, and we’re sure your seat time will be long. You won’t be on the side of the road kicking rocks.

Frame

The Screamin Demon frame is based on the old wishbone style frame design with a little touch of the new school. Yea, it’s a rigid, but don’t forget you got that spring loaded seat under you for added comfort if your worried about your lower back.

The frame is the foundation of the motorcycle’s aesthetics and reliability. All our frames are designed and manufactured in house in our San Bernardino facility. Every frame component (e.g. neck, side plates, tank mounts, tranny plate, axle adjusters, etc) are CNC manufactured with precision. Utilizing a 0.250 wall, 1.5” tube steel for the backbone and 0.160 wall, 1.125” tube for the rest of the frame, BBC uses the best steel possible for our frames. All frames are 100% TIG welded for a clean, strong and precise fusion. We think we make a statement about our confidence with a lifetime warranty on the frames we make.

Sheetmetal

Like our frames, our tanks and fenders are designed and manufactured in-house. We produce the sheetmetal with the frame as a unit, then gets ’mock-up’ before we hand it over to our painters or ship it out to the unassembled kit customers. We use heavy duty 12 gauge steel for our fenders and 14 gauge steel for the tanks. All tanks are pressure tested and the fenders are computer cut. We guarantee and warranty any leaks from the tanks and cracks in the fenders for your lifetime.
