Mikael Ols­son’s 1986 Honda XR600

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - NEWS & EVENTS -

Hi from Swe­den! I bought your mag­a­zine at the air­port as I had to have some­thing to flick through dur­ing our trip to Croa­tia. Great mag­a­zine! The mag­a­zines at home usu­ally only bring the new­est mod­els and lat­est equip­ment. And the bike-build­ing mag­a­zines are 90% Har­ley builds. When I read the ‘Show us Yours’ pages I just felt that I had to share my build. It is a 1986 Honda XR600, found and bought with cracks and bruises from an ear­lier, tough life. Frame, rear fork, triple trees and front rim were all cracked and needed weld­ing. This is my re­sult, a ‘street-scram­bler’ or some­thing. I re­ally en­joy it, but now it’s time for some­thing new, I give you a hint – GSX1400 Katana, modern bike, old style.
