Head Turning...

Tha Heist is a head-turning throwback to the hardtails of the 1940s, a motorbike that connects you to the road and will draw admiring eyes at every pass and stop. Beautifully designed and assembled by hand using the highest quality materials, tha Heist will be your loyal companion for many miles.

CCW’s Heist, was the first ground up vehicle that we designed. The idea behind the Heist was to keep it simple. From a traditional frame, to a traditional style motor, no overhead cams, no 4 valve heads. Simplicity has its benefits. A simple OHV motor with 1 intake and 1 exhaust port keep parts complexity down, with providing plenty of power for cruising.

The Heist was designed to be more custom then any major manufacturers current offerings. Simplicity is not easily achieved, but we feel that a beautiful balance was kept on the final design. Ride it stock or use it as a blank canvas. It’s great to start with a solid platform to build any custom from.

With over 80MPG and 70MPH+ cruising, priced under $3300 (in the USA) and a beautiful classic look. The Heist is just as happy being your daily workhorse as it is country roads.

As we currently sell in 12+ countries, please check with your local distributor if you want to know all detailed specifications. The Heist comes in several different motor configurations unique to each country.
