    Looks like its more of dirt track thingy from 1984 :)

    HowStuffWorks "1984 Harley-Davidson XR-1000 Sportster"

    But you're right - doesn't sound like it sold very well.

    Now I did ride one of these. The day the gent bought it in 1978. Just rode it around a school parking lot. Sadly the owner wrecked it and never did get it fixed as I recall. :newsmile04: Don't know if he didn't have insurance or what the deal was. I don't think he even rode it 6 months. An odd situation.

    I sat on a XLCR at a HD dealer in Oconomowoc Wisconsin a couple of winters ago. What a tiny little bike. It was a perfect low-miler specimen owned by an actual HD family member. It may have been the great-grandson’s niece’s brother-in-laws uncle twice removed, or something like that, but the sellers name on the title was authenticated as from the Davidson family.

    The asking price was $7500 and I really really really wanted to ship it home. However my better judgment took over and I moved up to a big twin.
