Bike Of The Day: 1977 Harley-Davidson XLCR
The XLCR is the final word manufacturing facility café racer, distinguished by its intimidating black look. It was the brainchild of Willie G Davidson who was impressed by the three main international customized bike traits of the Nineteen Seventies: choppers, avenue trackers, and café racers.
Willie G Davidson managed to create a café racer prototype by combining a flat-track fashion tank and seat with a small fairing and low handlebars. With approval from AMF (American Machine and Foundry), who owned Harley Davidson on the time, the 1977 XLCR was produced, making it the quickest mannequin in Harley-Davidson’s lineup and the corporate’s first bike with a triple Kelsey-Hayes disc-brake system.
The XLCR’s styling was extra aggressive than any Italian or British café racer, making it an immediate basic and a macho sports activities bike.
