Harley Sportster New Cafe Racer Style Parts By Steve Storz

Coming from the business of racing in the 70’s, Steve Storz passion for Harley Sportster racing & performance parts never weakened. Today, Storz Performance has developed a new line of Café Racer style accessories for use on 2004 to current model Harley–Davidson Sportsters.The bike featured here, the Storz SP1200RR, has been constructed to serve as a rolling display case for these parts. A hand formed aluminum gas tank and road race style fiberglass tail section with custom Saddlemen seat pads creates the basis for the look. Specially modified clip-on handlebars by Driven are mounted to the Storz/ Ceriani 55mm Inverted fork tubes above the top triple clamp. Ohlins rear shocks with adjustments for compression & rebound damping, spring preload, and overall length, complete the suspension package.

The donor bike for this project was a low mileage 2007 model 883 Sportster, but installation of a Wiseco piston kit increased the displacement to the 1200cc level. A BUB / Storz 2:2 high pipe exhaust and a Performance Machine air cleaner handle the breathing chores on this fuel injected bike. The bike rolls on 18” wheels, front and rear, with Metzeler tires, Galfer Floating Wave Brake Rotors, and Performance Machine brake calipers. A Storz billet rear set footpeg kit, Barnett custom cables, PM hand controls, and a Storz/Ceriani Steering Damper keep things under control. Pearlescent paintwork done by Vintage Restorations, Oxnard, Ca. The bike will be on display at the Cincy V-Twin Expo in the Wiseco Piston booth on February 4-6, and also at the Indianapolis Powersports Expo, February 17-19, 2012 in the Galfer Brakes booth. Storz Performance.

    Storz has been making great products for a really long time. It’s great to see that they’re still cranking out new stuff and I hope they’re doing well considering the economy over the past few years. I remember spending a lot of time looking at their catalogs back in the early 1990’s. Great stuff!
