2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster Cafe Racer


Here’s a really well done last-generation Sportster cafe racer. Nearly everything that can be done to it has been done. Only thing missing in my humble opinion is longer shocks in the back. Something like a 13.5″ adjustable Ohlins, or the Progressive 15″ shocks.

The price is kind of high for this bike. It is up on eBay with a Buy-It-Now of $8,500, but the auction price is starting at $7,400 and it has zero bidders.

I have to admit that I wish my Sportster looked like this. I have a feeling that mine would out-handle this one, but in looks and motor this one leaves mine for dead. Oh well. Maybe I can make some progress soon…

    Ok bike…bolt ons, not much imagination. Kinda like buying your girl friend a new set of 36’s…nice to look at, but not the real deal and not worth what you put into it. Just my $.36 worth

    Other than the lack of longer shocks (and who knows what’s actually in the forks), this is how you build a Sportster cafe racer…
