P.I.T mortors in NJ and the CCW Heist

I went down to PIT Motors LTD and met the guys who are bringing the Tha Heist to the States. They are located about 2hr drive for me, one way, and I ended up hanging out down there for 4 hrs. Brett and Al are good guys. Real gear heads.
They let me see the facility and take some pics of the place the bikes and the way they are shipped, I also was able to test drive the CCW Tha Heist.

I had the Bike out for a good 15 - 20 minutes to get a feel of the handling. The Bike has a great feel and a real nice pull to it. the seat was comfortable, let me tell you the roads in NJ pitted as hell. the handling was smooth and so was the gear shifts. It has a tight gear box so no false neutrals. The Rigid frame is very well constructed and the welds are clean and well done. The bike has all the legal tags (lol) and they are listed on the NJ approved manufactures list. What does this mean, I can title it in my State and its legit to be on the streets.

now in comparing the DF250RTB and the CCW Heist I can say the the handling felt better on the Heist. It may be due to the Heist engine being broken in but the Heist felt like it had better power and was able to stay in first for more than 5 seconds without screaming for mercy.

They knew the story of what had happened with Scooterdepot and the DR250RTB. And the fact that Scooterdepot asked me to ship back the DF250RTB Bobber due to it being an illegal street bike in NJ. One of the first things that Brett asked was did I bring the other bike down so they could ship it back for me, and he was serious. i had already shipped the other bike back the night before but thats a whole other story.

After a couple hours, a few cups of coffee and being allowed to play with the other bikes they had on site. i put a deposit down on the bike.

They were real understanding that I wanted to wait till I have my money returned from the other bike before paying for it straight out, but i still put the deposit down anyway.
They are taking care of all the PDI and all the other workup on the Bike and will start building it tomorrow. They even offered to drive it up to me themselves and asked me to come down and hang out whenever i want and go riding.

the Bike is worth every penny of the MSRP of $3195 USD I didnt even blink an eye and should have done this from the beginning.

If all goes the way it is supposed to I should have the bike by the 1st of April

here are some pics of me at the facility and on the Bike

Sounds like everything is turning out for the better. Great looking bobber, how many CC's? At that price it should be "Tha Steal" of the century.

Hey Kingshead you have a nice looking bike. the CCW Heist is a 250cc motor. Its a bit small but thats fine by me. i dropped a bike 10yrs back, walked away without a scratch, too much power no experience scared me off riding for a while.

Figured get back into things with a smaller engine and get my legs back under me ride around for a couple years till I'm more comfortable and get a bigger bike

:welcome2: Gardo!

Wow, that's a 250cc "CCW Tha Heist" motorcycle? It looks amazing. Lots of style and class there. Myself, I think it's the best looking 250cc custom I've ever seen, what a classy bike to start out on.

253 lbs dry, that's pretty light, that certainly helps the acceleration.

Sorry to hear about the fall gardo, same happened to me as a kid of 16. Only difference is my mother was the one scared and sold my bike when I was at school. Didn't ride again for 35yrs. My "Deer Jumper" thread tells the story of my return to riding. Will update the story periodically adding a little bit at a time.

Glad to see you decided to get back on that horse and start riding again, enjoy the bike.

That's a sweet bike. Getting to spend quality time with it now that it's home?

Well that lil 250 did great yesterday, kept up with my brother's Street Bob, of course he was keeping an easy pace

the Widow had her inaugural run today put 70miles on her after topping off $4.00 I had some technical difficulty with the mini cam so the video is almost nonexistent will need to plow through it and cut something together.
Had the bike cruising at one point at 60 and had more to give. Did mostly back and service road, riding and some highway. My brother took it easy on his HD so I could keep up LOL
the bike rode awesome and handled very well. Need to adjust the chain tomorrow and check all the bits that need to be tightened down (Locktite)
most of the day was spent at 40-50 and the bike felt great. All reservations about the ride to Americade are gone.
We started off in town and just took the roads here and there and made our way through to some nice scenery, and ran into a couple of other riders we packed up for about 5 -7 miles and broke off in our intended directions. Stopped off at a Hooters for a Beer and wings, the girls loved the Widow. hit the road again and we jumped on state hwy 46 for 10 miles then took the back roads to our other brother's place. Hung out for 30 min and came home.
the inaugural run was good. Took it easy but pushed it to see what it could do. I liked it and want more!
couple of things i learned about the bike;
It has plenty of power for a 250cc.
I am more comfortable with the bike because I was involved in the build process.
Any misgivings taking the bike up to Americade are gone. (Will be staying off the through way and taking the Taconic up or 22)

I actually wore my halfy and goggles today to see how they felt, man my full face will be sitting unless it gets cold out. I get it now.

here are some pics
