Honda XL600R Street Tracker

Honda street tracker
Honda’s bulletproof enduro weapon for the latter part of the twentieth century was the XL600, a big four-valve thumper built to handle desert rallies. There were several variants and upgrades, and they weren’t pretty bikes—but with a few modifications, the XL was surprisingly capable on the road. This street tracker conversion, however, sure is a pretty bike. You can see how it was built on Thierry’s Roc Street Tracker site. We suspect the powerful XL600R has the makings of a cult classic, and in the years to come, may even be mentioned in the same breath as the SR400 and W650.

    This is the most exciting bike I’ve seen so far, I’ve been looking for a project bike, but big thumpers like SR’s are hard to come by it seems, and this has got me thinking… looks like it’s well within reach financially and fabricationally!

    I need a ride that can handle the highways as well as my steep gravel road, and this looks just the ticket!

    Thanks!
