  • Esteban's Honda Transalp 600 Cafe Racer / Bratcafe

    La Honda Transalp 600 Cafe Racer / Bratcafe d'Esteban

    Motorcycle brand: HONDA

    Motorcycle model: TRANSALP 600

    Motorcycle year: 1996

    Tell us your story with this preparation (Why this style? Why this model? ...)

    I am 20 years old, I started motorcycling at 19. My father owned a 1996 Transalp 600, he ended up giving it to me. I wanted a motorcycle with a cafe racer style, the problem, I had no money. So I said to myself, since I don't have any money, instead of buying one, I'm going to build one with what I have. This is the story that gave birth to this project. So I end up with my cafe racer for less than 2000 euros and it's quite funny to see people's faces when they ask me what bike it is and I tell them it's a Honda Transalp. I gave it a facelift, it's cool PS: it's my very first motorcycle project, of course it's far from perfect. You have to make mistakes to learn.

    Here is a photo of the original model:

    Bonjour, très chouette résultat pour cette transalp, par pur hasard possédez vous encore quelque pièce de carrosserie orignaux ?
    Par exemple tête de fourche, “carénage frontale”
