This is a rare opportunity to own an extremely collectible motorcycle that has been worked on by some of the best craftsmen in the field. It has recently been serviced and fine tuned by 41 Performance after completing the break-in miles on the engine. At the first motor cycle show entered, this bike took 1ST PLACE IN ITS CLASS and BEST OF SHOW. RANDOM INFORMATION ON THE HARLEY DAVIDSON XR 1000: The XR750 inspired XL based street bike and AMA Battle of the Twins road racer was developed in just 60 days in 1982, allowing HD to meet AMA rules by producing 200 such bikes in time for the 1983 racing season. The bike sold for $6,800 (versus about $4000) for an XL). Peak torque is 71.4 ft-lb. (versus 58 for the XL). With high performance kit parts from the factory, 90 horses becomes a reality. Power emanates from XR aluminum heads and rocker boxes, high-compression (9:1) aluminum XR pistons. (Branch Flowmetrics heads (ala Jerry Branch), a redesigned combusion chamber and port area, the stock Q cams from the XL dual Dell’Orto slide carburetors and SR style megaphone exhausts). The frame is 100 percent XL, although a number of performance adornments have been added. Shorter connecting rods had to be used to bring down engine height to make the power plant fit. Dunlop K291 Sport Elite tires, dual 11 1/2 in. disk brakes up front and 11 1/2 in. in rear disk, flat track bars and 2.5 gallon fuel trank add up to a dry weight of 480 lbs. Performance options include higher compression ratio pistons, special cams and special exhausts. It could also be ordered with a larger 3.3 gal. fuel tank instead of the peanut tank which made it a little more useful for the street. Dick O’Brien, former racing director, oversaw the quick, quality work. The bike, in the hands of Jay Springsteen, won the Battle of the Twins contest at Daytona in March of 1983 with a top speed of 163 mph. According to Allen Girdler and Ron Hussey from their book Harley Davidson Sportster published by Motorbooks International, 1995, the Harley race shop “Reconstituted a frame left over from the team’s road racing retirement ten years earlier, fitted it with the latest in brakes and suspension, built a beyond-full-race XR 750 with the XR 1000′s bore and stroke, clothed the monster in early XRTT fairing, tank, seat and sic’ed the incomparable Jay Springsteen on the field for the BoTT race at Daytona Beach in 1983. He smoked ‘em. Trounced, crushed, whipped, destroyed, aced—pick any cliche from the sports page’s collection and it fits.” “The factory turned the project over to a top private tuner dealer, Don Tilley. He and his rider, Gene Church, took the BoTT title for the next three years and retired as living legends.” I reserve the right to end the auction early as the bike is also being advertised for sale locally. Safe, covered, insured shipping can be arranged through Federal Allied 1-800-747-4100. I have used them in the past and have always been more than satisfied with their door to door delivery.
