Default XL600R

Hi all 🙂

10 years ago i was building a little 125cc aprilia fighter, had a thread here, on a long lost account, it went nowhere, lack of money, willpower and creativity, cracked frame, no engine... I was 21 and not that skillfull...
https://www.customfighters.com/forum...#/topics/22983

So after 10 years i work fulltime as a cnc programmer/machinist, have a lot larger pool of knowledge and an itch to fighter something up in the spirit of this forum 😄

This is my new project, well... not that new, I had it for about 2 years but did not do much in that time, it has some work put into it, Honda XL600R super moto tracker whatever...

What was done:

-USD front forks with triple triangles from a 1998 Aprilia Pegaso, easy swap, just bought 2 new tapered bearings O.D. honda, I.D. aprilia, for 150$ i got forks, front wheel (19"), 300mm disc and brembo caliper

-wheels are 17" alloys from hyosung gt750, front is for 110/120 tire, rear 150/160, rear axle is the same diameter as hondas (yey) front is not so some spacers were done on the lathe a new bearings popped in, still need to make an adapter to fit a front disc to this rim, and need to make a caliper hanger for the rear, chain alignment will come later

-rear suspension with linkage from aprilia rs125, at the moment a stock shock, uper mount is tacked in place, need to gusset the crap out of it

Now I am working on linkage mounts on the frame and fork, after that i will do the subframe (it will be height adjustible) and seat, seatpan was made but still need to finish the front part where it meets the has tank. Fuel tank at the moment is a suzuki gn250, but maybe id like to make an angular tank from stainless, like really boxy, still dont know...

If the light output is decent I also vote for the dual headlight and cooler setup!

I have tried those projector lights and sadly they are not good for lighting the road 😞

Today not much work done, grinded the old linkage frame mount (in the pic is half done), then played with the shape of the new ones, and just one observation that the factory welds are awfull on this frame...
