4 Miles – 1977 Harley-Davidson XLCR

In America, Cafe Racer by AbhiLeave a Comment

When it was released, the Harley-Davidson XLCR (CR stood for Cafe Racer) was supposed to be an instant success powered by Harley’s most powerful production engine to date. It was a jet black departure from HD’s usual chrome fare. It didn’t sell well at all – now it’s a cult classic, and today I’m sharing the nicest XLCR I’ve ever seen.

Designed by Willie G. Davidson, this bike was supposed to be a black beauty featuring HD’s most powerful production engine yet. The lovely siamese exhaust and bikini fairing were very unique – this was quite the (nearly) chrome-less departure for Harley.

This example (VIN: 7F01864H7) has got to be the nicest XLCR I’ve ever seen. It’s got just 4 miles and is on the original MSO – the seller states that it’s always been kept in climate-controlled storage and it was a 100pt AMCA winner at the Oley swap meet show. The sale includes the original parts book, 100pt engraved silver AMCA plate, unassigned MSO, manuals, brochures, warranty documents, and service book. Also, I love the Statue of Liberty New York license plate from back in the day.
