1978 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

The term "Cafe Racer" was originally a European term coined in the early 1960s for wannabe riders trying to emulate road racers but were often found parked outside local cafes or pubs. It evolved into a subculture of riders with motorcycles modified for speed and handling rather than comfort. Bodywork and control layout often mimicked that of a contemporary Grand Prix racing bike. The XLCR was Harley-Davidson's entry into that marketplace. This 1978 example is finished in black with matte black exhaust pipes. It's powered by a 1000cc V-twin engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. From the Larry Winkler Collection.
