Customizing a XL600R into a Cafe Racer/Street tracker to ride South
 
Ive been working on my newly purchased 1984 XL600R that i plan to ride South of the border into Mexico and Central America...
I havent found much on this topic, i guess its not the practical thing to do.
so i wasnt sure where to post this, but i thought id share....

giant photos huh, sorry

At least it worked soo thanks

Id never liked the look of trail bikes, i fell in love with the look and feel of vintage cafe racer style bikes, i own a SR400 in Australia, and originally bought a CB750 in SanFrancisco to do this trip...
