2003 Harley Davidson XLH 100th Anniversary Hugger

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

To build a low cost 70’s style café bike instead of the usual bobber that’s so common today.

What motivated you to start your project?

Recently retired and wanted to keep busy on a project that I always wanted to do.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

Nothing too grand, but I fabricated the side mount license plate bracket and the special number plates to cover the stock frame fender rails so I wouldn’t have to cut them down or off.

What are you most proud of?

I guess the license plate bracket as it was made from a piece of steel sheet using only an angle grinder, table drill press, propane torch and bench vise.

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

I haven’t had it out much yet, but a couple of guys have given a thumbs up and told me it was cool.

    Very cool cafe racer. I love how easy sportswriters are to convert to cafe style. I just wish they fit the taller crowd better. That’s the only reason I have never build one.
