1983 Honda XL600R Custom Scrambler

Honda redesigned the XR’s motor, giving it twin carburettors and saw the introduction of the motor as a full 600 in the form of the XL600R dual-sport bike. The bike was a technological milestone as the XL series consisted of street-legal machines. 

They produced this bike in dual carbs for several years and then switched it to a single carb as technology improved. However, the early dual carb motors produce more power than all other Honda 600 singles. In fact, top racers in later years would swap the old style heads and carbs onto their more modern bikes.

This XL has been customised. The head has been redone and a new timing chain fitted. New front and rear sprockets, new chain, new oil pump, new front and rear tubes as well as tyres. The seat has been re-upholstered and a new tool bag fitted. Tank resprayed.
