1977 Harley-Davidson XLCR (Super Clean!)

I’m not going to write a lot about this bike. I’ve written about lots of these, so if you want to read more search the archives. This bike is probably the cleanest XLCR that I’ve seen come up on eBay at auction. It isn’t completely original however, as the seller has put some kind of non-stock muffler/straight-pipe on the bike.

Currently the bidding is at $1,025 with 5 days left and just a few bidders. Of course, at this price, reserve has not been yet. There is a Buy-It-Now offering the bike for $11,500 if that’s how you roll.

PETA Hates This Bike!!!

I like street fighters. To me, these are the modern cafe racer. I know they aren’t as popular here in the states as they are in Europe, but that was true with cafe racers as well. So why did I post this slightly ratty street fighter? I think this quote from the Robert Rodriguez movie “Planet Terror” explains why:

“I’ve seen me a lot of weird shit in my day, but I ain’t never seen a one-legged stripper. I seen me a stripper with one breast. And I seen me a stripper with twelve toes. I’ve even seen me a stripper with no brains at all, but I ain’t never seen a one-legged stripper. And I’ve been to Morocco.”

I’ve seen fur covered bikes. I’ve seen carpet covered bikes. I’ve seen astroturf covered bikes. But I ain’t never seen a alligator-hide covered bike. And I’ve been to Sturgis.

What can I say? It’s a street fighter, and it’s covered with alligator hide. Enjoy!
