Willie G's vision
My Story



This website was designed to bring together the owners, collectors, riders and enthusiasts of the Harley Davidson (1977-1978) sportster model XLCR - production cafe racer motor cycles. These have become the one of the most sought after Harley Davidson's on the vintage market, and we would like to preserve the future of the XLCR cafe racer by Harley Davidson. The motorcycles and parts needed to keep these particular bikes on the road and restoration project progressing for years to come. 

Willie D. Davidson - the designer and lead of styling at Harley Davidson in the 1970's had a vision of the XLCR cafe racer experiment that was brought to reality. Using the XR-150 technology and information we have today we have been able to produce a very elegant and brutish sportster in all black with siamese dual exhaust system and gold tank badges with gold AMF sidecover - oil tank stickers. I also had a quarter fairing and windshield with low gated gas tank, along with extended XR      
rear seat tail bed.

This motorcycle was the first to use 7 spoke Morris Mags front 19 inch and 18 inch rear wheels along with GOODYEAR raised white letter tires. The 77-78 XLCR was the fastest and quickest sporster models produced at that time.

There were 1,923 produced in 1977 and 1,201 produced in 1978 and only 9 produced in early 1979. These did not make it to the public or any sales floors. My questions to you are the following:

How many XLCR's are still out there on the road or in the hands of collectors, and what shape are they in?

What is the status of the total 3133 XLCR cafe racer produced by Harley Davidson in 1977-79?

We ask that you please help us gather this information by contacting us below with any information you might have. Please state the year, serial number and owner of the bike. Thank you.
