Professionally custom built Harley Davidson Cafe racer.
Started out at a 2008 Nightster
Engine: Professional rebuild with Zipper Hammer kit (look it up), Dark Horse crank, competition clutch, Zipper chain conversion for strength, Vance &Hines Competition drag 2 into 1 pipe. It is loud. Has an oil cooler mounted on the front frame
2.5 lb 25 HP NItrous boost
Have Dyno sheet: 94 HP 84 Torque at the rear wheel without the Nitrous
Roland sands “clip on” Cafe handle bars, Roland sands Rear peg and shifter (currently set up GP style with 1 up/4 down). Makes cornering left easier and faster shifts
Speedometer: Upgraded with Harley Davidson Speedometer/Tach. Roland Sands Speedometer re-locator so it does not stick up like a tumor as stock did
Brakes: Converted to dual front brakes to help stop this thing. Roland Sand Black-Op rotors front and rear. Hawghalters 4 piston calipers front and rear
Wheels: Custom wide swing arm kit now has 200/18 rear and 120/18 front. Wheels are “Ride-Wright” custom 80 spoke $1200.00 a piece wheels
Tires: Road sport sticky
Suspension: Complete custom adjustable front and rear “RaceTech” suspension. Currently set up for a 165lb rider, but adjustable. Much nicer and more adjustable than the usual “progressive” suspension most people use….also more expensive. Look up Racetech.con
Body: Seat and rear fender are custom from Thunder-bike Harley Davidson out of Germany. You’ll not find too many like it here in the states
Perfect custom paint – (similar to British racing green) The “13” on the side cover is painted on, not decals.
7 inch Lucas Headlight
Gas tank: Converted from the 3.3 peanut tank to a sportster 4.5 gallon tank. The peanut does not look right with the lines of a cafe racer and sits too high. The one on it is lower and the extra fuel helps.
I have receipts for everything and have over $23000.00 into it. I know, expensive Sportster, but it is kind of bad and fun
I have thoroughly enjoyed this bike and built it to be my last until I couldn’t ride it anymore. That said….along comes a woman that I care about enough to marry and she seems to want me to stick around so I guess I sell it.
It is a beautiful stand out bike that runs as good as it looks. Many non-bike people don’t even know what it is. I often come back to find people actively taking pictures of it or occasionally a little note left on it with admiration. It sure surprises the hell out of the “crotch rocket” boys when running with them!
Thank you for the interest
