This Hard Rock-Commissioned Cafe Racer Pairs Well With Leather, Metal

You don't need to play an instrument to be a rock star

You may not realize it, but Kraków, Poland, and Cleveland, Ohio, have a lot in common.

They’re both often confused as being capital cities, filled with Polish boys and also, they totally rock.

But since Kraków didn’t have a sweet jam like Ian Hunter’s 1979 tune to tout its cred as a bastion of all things rock and roll, the local Hard Rock Cafe opted to commission a custom Harley instead.

Built by Game Over Cycles, the Cafe Racer is a modified Harley Davidson Sportster 883 that’s been outfitted with music-related components such as a battery box in the shape of an amplifier, a rear swing-arm resembling a guitar and engraved 16-inch wheels that look like vinyl records.

In addition to those features, Game Over gave the one-off an exhaust system with adjustable sound and a seat engraved with the notes of the chorus from AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell.”

“In creating the Cafe Racer no detail was coincidental,” said Game Over owner Stanislaw Myszkowski told New Atlas. “This requires creativity and unusual solutions.”

Well played (heh).
