SELLER SAYS: A much loved and unique road-going race replica. Alloy race tank, solo seat with two pack paint, clip-ons and quality rearsets. Mikuni 40mm flat slide carb, large intake filter, 1340cc NRHS 88 top end, breather kit, stainless Supertrapp pipes with baffle plates supplied, upgraded ignition and cams producing a dyno verified 99+BHP at the back wheel. Spoked rims with good rubber, triple discs with braided lines all round. Sounds amazing and runs very well. Race stand included (original sidestand fitted) plus some spares. There is no damage and the bike is cosmetically excellent. Not ridden for a few years but everything works and it’s ready for rego (was on full NSW rego). Older owner retiring to a Guzzi single. Offers will not be entertained unless substantial, so serious buyers only. See video here. Contact John at email@example.com (Yass, NSW) ref#160423
EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Well here’s something out of the ordinary — and what a beast of a machine. Most Harley-Davidsons we see on Australian roads are highway cruisers or city-centric Sportsters — and you’d be hard-pressed to find one at a race track other than in the carpark — so the notion of a Harley as a race bike is rare indeed. But it shouldn’t be. Harley’s XR750 and multiple variants of it have been winning trophies in America since the early 1970s, most famously in dirt track races but also on the tarmac. Google ‘Harley XRTT race bike’ and you’ll see what I mean. There’s no denying the big V-twin engine from Milwaukee is strong as an ox and more than capable of producing (and coping with) big horsepower, a fact that has given rise to a veritable industry of go-fast goodies that transform big Hogs to fast Hogs. We can see more than a touch of the XRTT in the tail end of this bike of John’s, with both the shape and the distinctive black-and-red styling giving a nod to H-D’s greatest speed-chapter in history. John’s photos suggest he’s created a marvellous machine here, with quality components and slick workmanship. We’d love to take it for a long fast ride!
