1994 XL883 Cafe in serious modified stance. An aggressive Stage 1 Intake and Exhaust giving a 10% boost. In my opinion, it still needs the Zippers 1250 cc upgrade ~ but at 6,999 there is enough left in the wallet for that mod. The long stretched tank is vintage 70's cafe GP racer, as is the shelled solo seat. New updates are the wider front forks, rear set controls, larger brakes and progressive shocks. The alloy wheels are older Buell units - great for light weight, but need a more aggressive tread to the tires. The rider cockpit is framed in low clip-on bars and faced with a large speedo / tach combo. Of course, without saying - the striking character to this ride is the twisted high side pipes reminiscent of the dirt flat trackers of the 70's era.
Great for the short commute, the weekend club hopping and definitely the classic road runs. It is available at my old shop Destination Harley Davidson in Tacoma Washington; if you pick it up - say hello to Ed Sr. for me.
