CCM Celebrates 50 Years in the Moto Biz with an Ultra-High-End Ti-Framed Model

Having risen from the ashes of BSA’s (then) recently-defunct race department, Clews Competition Machines — or “CCM” — is a boutique Bolton-based moto marque founded in 1971 by off-road racer and engineer Alan Clews. While the company has historically focused on MX and ADV bikes, the British firm introduced a small-production road-going lineup in 2016 with the debut of the Spitfire range. And while the Spitfire is already offered in a myriad of versions, CCM has now unveiled what’s undoubtedly the most high-end variant of the model to date with what’s been dubbed the Titanium Heritage ’71.

Created to celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary, the Ti Heritage ’71 was designed using a spare-no-expense approach. As such, the standard Spitfire’s high-strength steel artisan hand-welded trellis frame has been replaced with a chassis that’s crafted from top-shelf 3Al/2.5V CWSR aerospace-grade titanium. Weighing just under 300lbs at the curb, the Ti Heritage ’71 also features a full titanium bolt and hardware kit, titanium Raptor footpegs, and a full titanium QD Racing exhaust system with a hand-welded 64-section titanium header.

Set in a single-piece subframe machined from aluminum billet, the bike’s cowl-equipped, mono-posto tail is also made from luxurious semi-aniline Beluga leather with contrasting gold perforations. Decorated with an Alan Clews signature on the tail, the Titanium Heritage ’71 also boasts adaptive cornering LED lights, LED sequential multifunction indicators, Ohlins Blackline suspension, Brembo brakes chomping down on petal-style rotors, a number of top-shelf Rizoma bits, a carbon-fiber engine cover, bodywork, and muffler end-cap, a custom livery from the UK’s Image Design Custom, and a bespoke set of ultra-lightweight seven-arm Dynamag wheels — the latter of which shaves more than 13lbs of unsprung mass off of the model.

Pricing and full specs s have yet to be revealed, though CCM has announced that the Ti Heritage ’71 will fittingly be limited to only 71 units in total. Riders can register their interest for one of these limited-edition 50th-anniversary models via the link below.
