Harley Davidson Cafe Racer by Racy Rach and Redmax Speedshop

This Harley Davidson Cafe Racer is built by Redmax Speedshop for “Racy Rach” who wanted a Harley Davidson Cafe Racer.

We did a story on Redmax before, so if you like, click here.

She has to have a 1200 and so a 2005 1200 Sportster seems to do the job.
