Turn your Harley Sportster into a café racer

A new line of Roland Sands 'Café Sportster' parts is said to easily convert a late model Sportster into an aggressive yet comfortable café racer.

The new 'café gauge and headlight re-locator' lowers your headlight and gauges to a more sleek position from the top handlebar clamp down to the front of the top triple clamp and lowers the stock headlight by two inches. This allows for the use of any aftermarket risers or complete elimination of risers for use of the RSD Café 39mm clip-ons.  Keep your warning/indicator light functionality with an LED unit sold separately. 

The RSD clip-ons mount to the forks, below the top triple clamp, for a low handlebar position. They utilize all stock wiring, so there is no cutting or soldering. The aluminum bars are dimple milled to allow for stock wiring to cleanly exit your stock switch housings.

The 'coil ignition re-locator' bolts directly to the cylinder heads of the bike and moves the stock ignition coil and ignition switch from under the neck of the bike to between the V of the engine on the left hand side.  This allows for complete removal of stock plastic wire caddy and exposes the frame of your bike above the front cylinder.

RSD claim these components are the easiest way to get the café look out of your Sporty while retaining all the function and reliability of the OEM wiring, headlight, speedometer, coil and ignition.
