Tell us your story with this preparation (Why this style? Why this model? ...)
Love or nostalgia for beautiful mechanics (each to their own of course), simple, uncluttered things and another way of seeing life or seeing motorcycle rides.
This bike was made for a woman (a friend's wife), that's why I lowered and lightened it as much as possible. It is handy, light, with a nice sound of a mono that breathes well. It's hard to explain, because for me it's a hobby, I like cafe racers and many other styles of motorcycles, I like to modify (simple things at the base, because if too many electronics I don't touch), I had already done another café racer with a ZRX1100 10 years ago and it's always a pleasure to embark on projects (despite some headaches😂), especially when the future owner with eyes that shine when he sees her.
Here is a BEFORE / AFTER with the original model:
What modifications have you made to your motorcycle?
Changing the fork + front wheel + brake from a BUELL S1
Replacement of the rear wheel and shock absorber for a model from a GSXF (because 3 branches like BUELL ),
Cut out the back loop and put your own with reinforcements
Installation of an AKRAPOWISH exhaust (😂) with a homemade stainless steel line
Tank and seat and hull installation from Remmotorcycle
Installation of a half handlebar
Installation of a magnetic digital counter,
Installation of mirrors and handle to keep the cafe racer look
Adaptation of rearsets from another motorcycle with machined aluminum plates
Installation of a HARLEY license plate holder and a small side light
Installation of a BREAKING front brake master cylinder for the large BUELL front disc
Realization by a friend of an engine and frame and trim painting: Jaguar green, Toyota cream white, varnish with glitter.
Carburetor tuning with larger air and fuel jet + green K&N style air filter.
Have you used REMMOTORCYCLE parts? If yes, which ones?
Because I have been looking for a 600XT for a long time and they are overpriced here ( cf. Frédéric lives in Reunion ) and I really like the sound of the single cylinder and it is the DR engine which is a reliable engine.
I have all kinds of motorcycles (BUELL S1 and XB, ZRX, PEGASO, XT, HARLEY FAT BOB, R6, GSXR750) and it is my 5 motorcycles that I have modified.
A perfect combination between the cafe racer hull, the LED loop and the 2 exhausts:
A little word from Remmotorcycle:
A superb achievement by Frédéric.
We see his experience in the preparation, the result is very successful.
The difference with the original motorcycle is striking!
