Harley-Davidson Sportster is probably the most convenient Harley for building a cafe racer.The Andorran workshop RC Dept rebuilt the 2005 Harley-Davidson XL1200 Sportster into a sophisticated cafe racer, which easily can be considered a great exemplar.

The Sportster’s silhouette’s been perfected with a low and long tank, transforming into a typical cafe racer tailpiece. Then they installed an inverted fork, YSS shocks, and 16” spoked wheels wrapped in Avon Cobra tires.Lighting is kept low profile with tiny LED turn signals. A new license plate bracket literally hugs the rear wheel.

Other specifications:

  • RSD foot pegs
  • KBike clip-ons
  • Brembo brakes
  • Mootgadget components
