1977 Harley-Davidson XLCR – Black Magic!

Cover: On of the fads of the 1970’s was “cafe bikes.” The standard base for this look was usually centered around a British bike. The fad was wide spread, however, and eventually included Japanese bikes and, for two years, Harley-Davidson. In 1977 the XLCR was introduced to a mild welcome. While it had a unique look, most people who wanted a cafe bike didn’t want it to be a Harley. Today, everything Harley is collectible and the XLCR is one of the limited edition machines that is in big demand.
