Genuine 1977 Harley Davidson XLCR with matching frame and engine numbers.I have owned this bike since 2009 when it was imported and it has been garaged most of the time.Only being used for the occasional run. Has been checked over prior to sale and serviced.Genuine workshop manual, parts book and owners manual are included.There were just over 3000 XLCR’s built between 1977 and 1979 and the original design was allegedly done by Wullie G. Wikipedia describes the XLCR asThe Harley-Davidson XLCR was an American café racer motorcycle manufactured by Harley-Davidson between 1977 and 1979.Some say that designer Willie G. Davidson created it from the existing XLCH Sportster, initially as his personal vehicle. The bike was actually designed by a committee of three people: Bob Modero (an engineer at Harley) Jim Haubert (Jim Haubert Engineering) hired as an independent Skunkworks contractor and Willie G. Although he was not present, this group had a strong styling influence from Dean Wixom when the three decided, as one of the starting points, to enlarge a dirt track XR750 fuel tank. Mr. Wixom was the original designer of this fuel tank.Changed styling included the addition of a “bikini” fairing, slim front fender, reshaped fuel tank, a pillion-free saddle and unique “siamesed” two-into-two exhaust. It was “largely ignored” by consumers when launched in the 1970s, and “famously a sales flop”, a “narcoleptic turner” due to long wheelbase and cruiser-like steering geometry, with “lethargic performance”, but by thirty years later, had become a collectors item.
There are a few incorrect parts for the purists, the rear shocks are Koni’s, the brake lines are braided steel, the silencers and brackets aren’t correct, An oil filter has been fitted and a new LH exhaust pipe fitted, though the original is included. The speedo is incorrect and hence the mileage of 17500 and possibly some other small parts. Viewing recommended and if further info required please get in touch Can help arrange delivery if required
