Cafe Sportster: Build Video

Not too long ago a friend of ours Thomas (@thecalife) picked up an 2001 Sportster from Craigslist for a great deal. He reached out to us for info on our Cafe Sportster and composed his parts list with a bit of our help. We of course suggested a Cafe Tail Section, 15″ Stiletto Shocks and 1″ Clubman Handle Bars. He also sourced other parts from RSD, Biltwell, Todd’s Cycle, Chainsikle and ebay. Click here to see the Chop Cult build thread for more info.

Watch the build video he did for us below!

Greasy Dozen Cafe Sportster


You might remember a while back we sponsored the Greasy Dozen Contest held by the Old Bike Barn. Randy H. won a bunch of our Cafe parts for his 1992 Sportster. He received a pair of Clubman Handlebars, 15″ Stiletto Shocks, Partially Covered Cafe Racer Tail Section along with pair of MX Style Pegs. Looks like he just got it all sorted out and ready for the road. Here’s an email he sent in over the weekend.

Hey Burly Brand,

Just catching back up. Pretty much got the bike done. Heres some pics for now, should have a lot better quality pics in the next week or so.

Thanks again for everything,

Randy H.

Thank you Randy, the bike looks great, you put in a lot of hard work! Ride safe and keep an eye out for more Cafe inspired products on there way for 2014.

So our buddy Thomas aka @thecalife (IG) just bought his first Harley a couple of weeks ago. After being much inspired by our Cafe Sportster build and parts offering, he knew exactly who to call and what he wanted to do. He chose the Fully Covered Cafe Style Tail Section, our 15″ Stiletto tall shocks and of course Clubman Handlebars in a chrome finish. He says the Stiletto Shocks and our Cafe Style Tail Section were the first things he replaced and really made the most impact. In order to install

New Stuff Parts

Lifted Is The New Lowered

15″ Shocks Sportster Models

Lifted is the new lowered and the Burly Stiletto shocks are 15″ of coil sprung sexiness! Dreampt up to give Sportys that proper Café, Scrambler or crazy post-apocalyptic look and functionality. We designed a spring to specifically deal with small stuff like road noise and the big things like pot holes ect. At the end of the day after tearing up the streets your body isn’t taxed and is ready for more!

May require modification to exhaust brackets to open up clearance for chain/belt.

Fits: XL 1986-2003
