Aluminum Cafe Racer Body Kit For Harley-Davidson Sportster. Priceless.

Worried investors are buying gold, silver and Swiss Francs, now the strongest currency in the world. To the point where Swiss government is so scared that the country exportations would collapse that it is thinking again, like several decades ago, of obliging banks to give negative interest on Swiss Francs deposits… And one victim in our industry of a too strong currency will probably be fellow Swiss Custom Builder Christian De Kant. The aluminum conversion kit for Harley Sportster 86 & up that he designed (fabrication and stamping under his control made by Italian company MAS Engineering) is an easy bolt-on way to turn your stock bike into a shiny and light Cafe Racer.

Problem? At 1 Swiss Franc = 1.26 US Dollars, the kit will cost you the price of a brand new Sportster and more. But for those who have found a way to escape our deep US recession, I list the price in Swiss Francs (to not scare you) for the complete kit and of each component that you can buy separately. For the others, pleasure of the eyes… Kit sold online at  at DK Motorrad. Now, if a US builder would have done this kit, with our devaluated US Dollar, it would be today the exact opposite,  the cheapest Sportster aluminum body kit in the world for foreign buyers…The prices in Swiss Francs. Complete kit. 6,800. Aluminum tank 2,400. Belt Guard 200. Aluminum seat. 1400. Pinion cover. Aluminum fairing 500. Exhaust system 1800. Aluminum handlebars. 200. Front fender 320.

    It’s beautiful and of course too expensive for us bankrupted Americains.

    Very, very nice! Too bad there aren’t more cafe racer enthusiasts in America. I suspect it has to do with our topography and wide open spaces, long straight boring roads as compared to Europe’s curvier roads.

    I like the Santiago Choppers set up 100% better than this one. Looks more original and much more custom…..

    Looks awesome! I think they should drill out the steering stem to run the tank vent thru, but very minor detail in an otherwise great looking bike.

    the norley come with a featherbed frame the total weight frame gastank oil tank only 15 kilos

    I’m with Steve Carr, the Santiago Choppers set up beats this one hands down, nice though it is.

    hk and road rash,

    I live in Kansas…ever traveled in Kansas? SW Missouri and NW Arkansas have some nice scenic roads. I don’t have HD TV and can’t get Cafe Racer. My comment was acknowledging that our motorcycle tastes seem to favor the higher rake, extended forks, chopper and heavier cruiser models due to our interstates whereas, Europe seems to favor the lower rake, lighter, sportier, cafe racer type of bikes due to their curvier roads as a general rule. It was a general observation, not one that excluded that we had no interest in cafe racers.
