Harley Davidson released the XLCR as a factory built Cafe Racer in March 1977 at Daytona bike week, it was the result of a personal and secretive design produced by Willie G Davidson the then head designer at AMF-owned Harley Davidson, it was like nothing Harley fans had seen before and was met enthusiastically at the time although following sales were somewhat of a disaster, Sporting an elongated angular tank, bikini fairing, cast alloy wheels, twin discs upfront with Kelsey-Hayes brakes. The 1000cc Sportster engine was mounted in a XR frame with a performance Siamese cross over two-into-two exhaust, and suspension by Showa of Japan. The XLCR went on to be produced in limited numbers for 1978 and then discontinued, all in approximately only 3200 were built which makes this Harley Davidson a highly sought-after piece of Harleys rich history.
This was quite the (nearly) chrome-less departure for Harley.
