As I wrote many times during these last years, old and new built Café Racer bikes are back in style and Café is fast becoming the new “Black”…. The Sportster based Café Racer has also become a style in its own right with a magic that only Harley can bring to the table. The one missing piece of that Ton Up formula is often a traditional tail section, but thanks to the folks at Burly Brand it looks like that’s about to change.
Their new solo seat/cowl is designed to bolt to the 1986-2003 Sportster chassis and complete the XL’s café transformation. Unlike the Café seats that sit on a stock fender, they’ve created a true tail section, opening up the rear of the bike for an authentic look. Available in partially covered with paintable black gel coat as well as a full covered version.
Although the original 60’s Café Racer is a motorcycle that has been modified for speed and handling rather than comfort, both Burly seats feature a gel insert in the seating area for maximum riding comfort. Requires removal of fender, supporting struts and relocation of taillight and signals. Includes mounting hardware for OEM electronics. Made in the USA.
