CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE PRESS RELEASE - PUBLICATION FREE OF CHARGE LSL Urban Headlight Kit E-approved Streetfighter and Café Racer headlight for modern look and superb riding light! Available for fork tube diameters from 38 to 54 mm, bracket styles and order numbers see CCE catalogue section 5. ALL IMAGES: The LSL „Urban“ headlight gives the 21st century look. It has been created for „Streetfighter“ type bikes, but has been used on CCE‘s previous Sportster, catching the eye of many Sportster riders: „Café racing not necessarily means living in the past ...“. The stylish headlight is available for many fork diameters and different Harley model lines. It is also used for other brands. Z1R of 1977 are certainly trend-setting designs, based on the „core values“ of a Café Racer: Small fairing/(wind)shield, streamlined tail end, often a single-seater and low, sportbike-style riding position, using clip-on or M-shape sportbike handlebars. Optional a small spoiler and oil-cooler – and hardcore riders would use rearwards mounted foot controls. In some respects, the 1980 introduced (and 2018 reintroduced) Suzuki „Katana“ could be viewed as a modernized version of the „Café Racer“ and shares a surprizing history with Harley-Davidson‘s last Ironhead-powered design study: Both were designed by Hans A. Muth, who also was responsible for the R 90 S. Mocked as „Katana Glide“, the design never went into production and the remains of Harley‘s last Ironhead Café Racer are unknown. It was then up to Eric Buell to „outsource“ the theme of a Harley-powered Sportbike until his business folded in 2009. Daytona (Japan) Vintage Headlight A true „classic“ look for genuine „Café Racer“ style bikes! Available in multiple versions and choice of (separate) mounting brackets!
