I love questions about the H-D alphabet.
Not sure on this one....
C is for standard or classic?

From the first XLCH in '58, Harley used to proclaim in their ads that the CH was "Competition Hot".

Ahh Yes!, Nothin like havin a kick pedal drop out in mid stride, Hyperextending your knee, Immediately causing you to suddenly hit the floor and roll around screaming in pain, holding your throbbing knee and causing you to cuss like a sailor! ''The C stands for ''Crippler""!
Milwaukee Crippler.:D lol

XL- Series started in 1957. They are "unit construction" (engine &
transmission share a common case).
L - High compression (7.5:1 as of 1957).
H - Starting in 1958 came the XLH, meaning Higher-power or Highcompression
(9:1) or Hot .
C - Also in 1958 was the XLCH. The C was intended to mean
"Competition".
CR- Cafe racer style, with bikini fairing.
LT- Touring, with bigger fuel tank, thicker seat, and hard bags.
