2016 Star Bolt C-Spec

The third version of the hugely successful Star Bolt – the C-Spec – draws on café racers for inspiration. To turn the Bolt from a cruiser into a café racer, Star utilized clip-on handlebars, fork boots, a taller seat, a removable passenger seat cowl, plus 1960s-period paint and graphics.

The 2016 Star Bolt C-Spec also gets the piggyback shocks found on the R-spec version of the Bolt. Like all Bolts, the C-Spec has a fuel-injected 58-cubic-inch air-cooled motor with each cylinder getting an overhead cam and four valves. There’s a 298mm wave disc on each wheel for braking.
