Dakar project now sold

My 1980's inspired Honda XR/Xl/Nx now finished, took it out today for a shakedown and did not disappoint, rides as good as it looks.
Started life as an xl600,
modified to accept XR600 suspension, 1984 XR500R plastics, tank and seat came from a 1986 XL600 LMF,one-piece supertrapp silencer,(sounds so good),
all electrics now reside in the airbox, Honda Dominator engine with electric start.
bike rides real nice and looks pretty trick too!
