Willie G’s mistake: 1977 1000

For Sale: Harley Davidson 1000

This is one of those that always seems to a bit of emotion with readers. during the mid 70′s as a way to cash in on the racer craze coming from Europe, Willie G decided that an H-D branded could help grow the of The Motor Company (who at the were under AMF control). story: Willie G was very sales of the XLCR never took off.

Still the creation was unique, and still looking today. And as evidenced by post and this post on RSBFS, many readers mind finding this big in their garage.

Although for H-D, the concept must been seen as relatively at the time. Start with a twin in a Sportster chassis, add a fairing, disk brakes and paint. The XLCR is as much a bike as a cafe racer, but the competition of Moto Guzzi, BMW and performance was on par.

What H-D not have counted on was the amazing race initiated by the Japanese. released, the XLCR could not its own against the machinery coming the land of the Rising Sun. guys didn’t buy Harleys, and guys didn’t buy sportbikes – left the XLCR without a in either camp.

From the seller:

About 6 months later moving some other crates the motorcycles were still in their original crates. The Canadian government no part of untangling all the insurance and informed Harley Davidson to the motorcycles from Canadian Harley Davidson (which was producing 1978 models) to offer the 20 motorcycles to Harley dealerships in the north east of the country.

As luck would it, a friend of mine was the owner of Davidson of Trenton, NJ. Upon this and knowing of my interest in the he contacted me. We made arrangements H.D. to procure one. I ownership of XLCR # 7FO1987H7 on

Seller’s comments:

I OWNED THE XLCR FOR ONE YEAR AND 220 MILES WHICH WERE TO MEETS. THE ORIGINAL SELLER AND HIS FRIEND HAVE BOTH RATING WITH EBAY AS I DO. XLCR IS RARE BECAUSE IT IS 1 OF 20 MODELS; THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE IS IN KPH. IF THE RESERVE IS MET, THE WILL COME WITH EXTRA PARTS I HAVE OVER THE YEARS, BEFORE I GOT BIKE.
