Poland based Game Over Cycles (GOC) built a Cafe Racer for Hard Rock Cafe in Krakow, Poland. It earned three rewards at the 2016 European Bike Week (EBW) in Austria. The bike pays homage to music through its various musical parts that are built into the custom, which is based on a Harley-Davidson Sportster 883.


The “musical” parts of the Harley Sportster 883 Cafe Racer build are rear swing-arm imitating guitar fretboard, full wheels with engraved tracks like on a vinyl record, leather seat with engraved chorus notes of song “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC,  air filter in the form of microphone, coil cover in the shape of guitar with a suction mechanism, where tremolo arm also is used for carrying out suction in the carburetor, battery box in the shape of amplifier, and exhaust system with adjustable sound and shift lever imitating a turntable arm. The bike was officially unveiled on October 21, 2016 at the cafe.
