Storz SP1200RR | Harley Cafe Racer

Custom Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

Storz Performance has developed a new line of café racer style accessories for 2004 to current model Harley-Davidson Sportsters. A new show bike, the Storz SP1200RR serves as a rolling display case for these items.

A hand formed aluminum gas tank and road race style fiberglass tail section with custom Saddlemen seat pads creates the basis for the look.

Specially modified clip-on handlebars by Driven are mounted to the Storz/Ceriani 55mm inverted fork above the top triple clamp. Twin Ohlins rear shocks–with adjustments for compression, and rebound damping, spring preload, and overall length – complete the suspension package.

The donor bike for was a low mileage 2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883. The installation of a Wiseco piston kit increased the displacement to the 1200cc level. A BUB/Storz 2:2 high pipe exhaust and a Performance Machine air cleaner handle the breathing chores on this fuel-injected bike.

The bike rolls on 18-inch wheels, front and rear, with Metzeler tires, Galfer Floating Wave Brake Rotors, and Performance Machine brake calipers. A Storz Performance billet rear set footpeg kit, Barnett custom cables, PM hand controls, and a Storz/Ceriani Steering Damper keep things under control.
