On reading a number of books on H-D History I thought back to the day I rode my first Harley. It belonged to a gent I worked with. I was a Millwright Apprentice at the time and he rode it to the Trade school we were attending back then. At that time I rode an affordable 1977 Honda 550K in line four cylinder. However my co-worker friend rode in to school one night on a brand new 1978 XLCR Cafe Racer 1000 CC. He offered me a chance to jump on and take it for a ride, which I did with much delight. Oh was it much different from what I was used to. Being somewhat concerned and showing respect for this gent I just rode it around the school parking lot (which was huge), and then we went on to class. Even back then I remember that the styling was much different than other H-D models. Ironically with in a few months his XLCR was wrecked and I don't think the owner ever got it put back together...and that is a long story in itself. At the time I rode this Harley I never thought of how this model would have somewhat of a distinct history years later. According to one source I have this model was only made in 1977, 1978, and 1979. Did anyone on our Forum ever own a XLCR ? I just wonder how many of these models were made all total?
