The 2019 Season is starting strong and the first inand

outdoor events have been held in Europe and

the USA. Even more important: Custom Chrome

Europe has introduced its 2019 Catalogue – Edition

#48 in an almost 50 years business history. While the

1.728 strong 40.000 products mega-catalogue offers

everything for Harley-Davidson, Indian and Custombike

builders, riders and enthusiasts, here‘s a small

extract what the new CCE catalogue has to offer for

the dedicated Café Racer and Dirt Track style customizer.

Both styles have become extremely popular

in the last years, and Custom Chrome Europe has

commissioned several „Bolt On And Ride“ bikes

fitting the theme – some of them even „crossover“

themed rides, often based on „Sportster“ models.

With CUSTOMBIKE, Intermot, EICMA, Motor Bike

Expo, Polish Custom Show and Daytona Bike Week

now behind us, it is quite clear that Europe is now

leading in both „Café Racer“ customizing and „Dirt

Track“ style. The ace series might be run across the

USA, but the customs themed to it are seen here:

TOP: Customized by Rick‘s Motorcycles, the „Black Bob“ was based on a Twin Cam Dyna and used the popular

Arlen Ness „Café Racer“ handlebar fairing as known from „Sons of Anarchy“. Motogadget „M-Blaze“

indicators and Fehling Superbike handlebar add to the look and rideability. While the look is more „Dragstyle“,

it‘s the number of „Café Racer“ style parts that are utilized to create this ride that make it stand out.

The idea to individualize a motorcycle is most probably

as old as the motorcycle itself – as soon as

the first-ever motorcycle-owner adjusted seat-height

or handlebar position to his needs, he „customized“

his or her motorcycle. While in the dawn of motorcycling,

the motorcycle was primarily a daily matter of

transport, in the twenties they also became an object

of design and fashion. Two of the most magnificent

examples are the French 1928 „Majestic“ and

the Syracuse-manufactured „Ner-a-car“ which also

share the idea of a hub-steered front wheel. While

racing on dirt has been performed as the first form

of motorcycle racing – either on the unpaved roads

of the time or on oval horse tracks already existing,

the first Café Racer could also be dated back to a

surprising 100 years history: By todays standards,

George Brought‘s motorcycles – handcrafted and

taylor-made of the highest quality standards since

1919 – would certainly qualify as the World‘s first

„Café Racer. Likewise (to show how standards are

´ ´ ´

The origin of the name „Café Racer“ dates back to

the late fifties and early sixties: Rock ’n’ Roll was hitting

a post-war Great Britain in which motorcycles

were still a daily matter of transport, but more people

could afford small cars and handed their bikes over

to their kids, growing up with the music of Elvis, Little

Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry and their

British equivalents Tommy Steele and Cliff Richard.

When the „Teddy Boys“ became motorized, they

soon turned „Rocker“ – and their bikes, the „madein-Britain“

singles that had taken their fathers and

grandfathers to war and work, were soon modified

where the teenagers and young motorheads of

the time met: At the next Café or pub. Unlike today,

where cellphones are the „medium“ to connect and

stay in touch with friends, this place was somewhat

reserved for mofa‘s, mopeds and motorcycles well

into the Nineties. Thus the birth of the Café Racer

from Brit-bike origin came for several reasons: Cheap

singles were available en masse – and popular

with the riders. Neither Harley-Davidson‘s nor Indian

had anything lightweight and nimble to offer at the

time, the latter brand folded to the mismanagement

and lack of new and reliable products in 1953 and

– even more important: Harley-Davidson (and other

US motorcycles) were banned from being imported

to the UK until 1957 to protect the British motorcycle

industry after World War II. History often has strange

ways to repeat itself...

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.

which became top-sellers in the program. Especially

Sportster-based BOAR-bikes were converted to

Café Racers, starting with the 883 Sporty that first

was equipped with a Streetfighter style headlight,

followed by transformation into the „Coffee Racer“

by Harley-Factory Frankfurt. In 2013 Rick‘s Motorcycle

converted a 2009 „Street Bob“ ito the „Black Bob“

– and the TGS-built „Speedfreak“ and Fred Kodlin‘s

2016 „Sportlin“ will forever be remembered as stylish

Café Racers by those who rode them. Other BOAR-

Sporties would qualify as „Cross-Over“, starting with

the „Custom Crawler“ of Benno‘s Custom Road in

Bad Camberg. Located in the Taunus mountains

between Frankfurt am Main, Lahn and Rhine river,

narrow motorcycle roads invite for a ride, no matter

it you‘re aboard a „Café Racer“, Super Moto or Dirt

all three styles in one superb rider as did the 2018

Schneider from a XL 883 „Iron“ from Swiss topdealer

Baechli Harley-Heaven. With a Kodlin „Cafe

many Roland Sands Design parts, the „H9“ was one

of the most used BOAR rides of the 2018 season!

That the „Café Racer“ has a great future is visible in

than others. does combine „look“ with „performance“

in terms of suspension and power. Political correct

would be the term „Flat Track“ style, as most customs

built under this „banner“ have a reference to the

American AMA Flat Track Series, for decades dominated

by Harley-Davidson‘s XR 750 V-Twins. From

the early day of motorcycle racing on horse tracks,

„Flat Track“ events in the US can be traced back into

the Teens and Twenties, then founded AMA created

the „A-class“ for professional Flat Track racing.

In Europe, Speedway racing became more popular

but after World War II soon developed in a highly

specialized motorsport using Methanol-powered

500 cc single cylinders, soon creating a league of its

own. With the same lightweight British singles and

twins that were the base for the first „Café Racer“

type customs came another type of motorcycle: The

„Scrambler“. In part street bike, moto cross, enduro

and trial bike, „Scramblers“ wer identified by mild or

full scale off-road tires, high mounted exhaust systems

and additional ground clearance, often featuring

engine protection skid plates, Moto-Cross/Enduro-style

headplates and suspension components

to offer a riding option „off the beaten path“. Popular

racing events like the „Six Days“ Enduro racing and

the AMA Grand Championships made this motorcycle

design popular with all brands, so did the movies:

Although performed on a customized Triumph TR6

Trophy, not the SC he later raced in the International

Six Days Enduro Trials of 1964, Steve McQueen‘s

„Great Escape“ jump in the movie of 1963 did much

more for motorcycle Scrambler sales as hundreds

of trophies could do! By the end of the Sixties,

most motorcycle manufacturers had „Scrambler“

off-springs from the „Sport“ or „Touring“ models for

sale: Harley-Davidson in the „lightweight“ program

they offered – while running experimental Sportster

Enduros in the Baja-California Enduro races and developing

a „secret weapon“ for an upcoming 1969

rule change in AMA Flat Track Racing. However, as

often forgotten (or glossed over by Harley-friendly historians),

by the beginning of the model year 1969,

actually end of 1968, Harley-Davidson had reached

the end of the line, only to be rescued by money-injection

from American Machine Foundry (AMF) who

in the following years provided a new production facility

as well as the necessary money to develop new

model, one of which soon would become a legend in

Flat Track Racing: The XR 750. American Flat Track

XR 1000 of 1983, Harley-Davidson had over-estimated

the demand for a „stock“ XR lookalike – the XR 1200 has

very little in common with the race bike it depicts – and

despite good performance on the curvy roads of Europe,

more like Super Moto than Flat Track, the XR 1200 never

reached the sales numbers that were expected. Too

many compromises had been made in the styling – and

few customizers „radicalized“ the bike as it should have.

Top Secret: The AMF water-cooled

MX Revolution

Few of todays Harley-riders have an idea how widespread

the program of lightweight and 2-stroke Harley‘s was in

the Sixties and Seventies, thanks to the cooperation with

Aermacchi in Varese/Italy. This prototype of a 1977 water-cooled

Moto Crosser, planned to substitute the aircooled

MX 250 Racer – which was only in production for

one year – never made it into production. well, not as a

Harley-Davidson! When Harley/AMF sold Aermacchi, the

design was the resulting new motorcycle manufacturer

Cagiva which had great success with water-cooled Moto

Cross racers. But it was AMF money that boosted this

development: Before, water-cooling for Moto Cross racers

was thought to be impractical, if not impossible.

CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE PRESS RELEASE - PUBLICATION FREE OF CHARGE

the third most popular SPORT, as it has been in the

Eighties. It took Harley more than a year from introduction

to delivering the first XR‘s updated again in

2010 to XR 1200 X, but sales of the model remained

shallow, forcing its discontinuation after the 2013

model year. Which made it last longer than XLCR

and XR 1000 combined...

´ ´ ´

Of course, the XR 1200 did compete with Eric Buells

sportbikes with which it shared the almost identical

powerful motor – and Eric was not shy to introduce

his own „Enduro/Touring“ offspring, the „Ulysses“. All

Buell models, the XR 1200 and a huge number of

Sportsters of all model years form a huge base of

potential (and powerful!) „Flat Track“ style custombikes,

as CCE‘s dealers have proved over and over

again in the last two decades – and certainly will

continue to do from the pages of catalogue #«48.

´ ´ ´

The 2013 „Custom Cross“ by Independent Choppers

of Duesseldorf was one of the most trend-setting and

radical custombikes of the 2013 BOAR year. The

bike would have qualified as Dirt-Bike as well as Flat

Track style, with a touch of „Old School“: Sportster

„Knucklehead“ style covers and Kustom Tech controls

with wrapped exhaust competed with spoke

wheels and off-road tires. „Custom Cross“ was able

to master „heavy dirt“ sections and did so several

times when touring with the CCE staff: In the countryside

behind Saint Tropez, the Grand Canyon du

Verdon and Czech Republic.

´ ´ ´

In 2014, the „Custom Crawler“ marked a stylish Enduro/Super

Moto/Flat Track/Café Racer hybrid that

combined these often contrary styles very good in

one motorcycle that also was great fun to ride. As

with so many cool Custom Sporties, the stock „Peanut“

tank limited range and fun time for the ride, but

Benno‘s Custom Road did even trick the stock tank

into an NSU-lookalike!

´ ´ ´

Exchange the JW Speaker headlight against a more

„Flat Track“ style headlight/Number plate combination,

add a skid plate under the engine and CCE‘s

BOAR Scout „Spyke“ would certainly qualify as a

little Flat Track Bobber: It‘s performance certainly

did! And the BSL „Drag Race Bomb“ with „outline“

welding seems style subsequently became a topseller.

But in 2017, Harley-Davidson Wuerzburg

blew everybody´s mind with the stylish „Sporty Spice“

which again crossed several design lines and

broke rules: Partially Super Moto, part Flat Tracker,

the 883 Iron utilized the latest in EMD and Roland

Sands parts, the „Flat Track“ touch added by Rick‘s

Motorcycles tail end and Cult Werk spoiler and fender.

The riding performance was upgraded by ODC‘s

„Roma“ upside-down fork. Recently put up for sale by

Harley-Davidson Wuerzburg Village, „Sporty Spice“

was a Sportster published in almost every European

Country, also with many touring related features that

boosted the popularity of the style.

´ ´ ´

Probably the closest „Flat Track“ replica ever followed

for the 2018 BOAR year: The „H9 Sporty“ by

Danny Schneider was a success from the premiere

at Motor Bike Expo 2018 and a great ride too. Swissbased

„Hard Nine Choppers“ modified the cool „Flat

Track“ Sporty from a 883 „Iron“ by Swiss top-dealer

Baechli Harley-Heaven. This time, a CCE 3.3 Gallon

tank would provide sufficient range and „fun time“

and RevTech wheels added a lot of style. Again, Fred

Kodlin‘s sheet metal „Café Racer“ tailed would serve

the „Flat Track“ style, so did the BSL „Drager Drag“

stainless steel pipes and several RSD components.

´ ´ ´

With the new parts added in the 2018/19 winter season

– plus the added popularity of the AMA „Flat

Track Racing“ series where Harley-Davidson and Indian

battle it out again, both manufacturers came up

with new models that with fuel both „Café Racer“ and

„Flat Track“ styles: The 500/750 „Street“ and „Street

Rod“ models by Harley-Davidson and the 2018 premiere

FT 1200 by Indian, introduced in Cologne,

then expanded with already three different FT style

options at EICMA 2018, both themes are here to

stay – and likely to increase in popularity! Often forgotten

is the fact that not just Harley and Indian race

for trophies in the AMA Flat Track Series: Japanese

and European manufacturers always played a part

in this series – and they certainly do in „Flat Track

and Café Racer customizing. The first events this

year have approved that – and who has any doubts

should open the new Custom Chrome Europe catalogue:

You will find what you need to build a great

This „Special Feature“ reminisces on the history of the Café Racer and „Dirt Track“ styles and its recent popularity, especially with

the younger builders all over Europe. The products from the current CCE catalogue represent only a small fraction of typical „Café Racer“

or „Dirt Track“ components available, but they represent those that are essential for creating the style. And surprising number of them has

already been „road-tested“ by the CCE team.
