Default Cafe Racer

Seriously cool (imo) Harley Davidson XLCR Cafe Racer for sale on ebay at
the moment. (330136569332) sorry, don't know how to sort link.
Believe these are quite rare and was the bike Michael Douglas rode in the legendary beginning scene of Black Rain.
Is it only me that thinks this bike is ultra cool?

I prefer British style cafe racers with dropped bars, but that is nice looking for a Harley. I think the Night Rod (AKA Matt Black Hammerite Special) has hints of that bike in the styling.

Thanks Hovis.

Ah, but have you seen the beginning of Black Rain when he races a GSXR on the Harley? Brilliant.

O.k. we know in real life the Gixxer would have torn the Harley a new backside, but still a great scene nontheless.

Take it you won't be outbidding me then, Hovis!

Oh, and if you ever want proof that a V-Twin sounds soooo much better than an IL4, check that scene out.

What?
I understand that only 1204 were ever made, and that there are probably
less than 100 still in existence.
SACRILEGE I say.
