    Never seen one but looks 1985-86 Honda XL600R, Paris-Dakar kinda edition. I mean I've seen XL600 and XR600's but those h/lights are throwing me off.

    Almost there Al, the headlights are a big clue to the exact year/model.

    A lot of work to do but not as much as the basket case that was my DR800

    Yes and I defer all my winnings to Partsguy. I just took the info he provided and did the leg work. I am not familiar with that bike but I love a good mystery.

    "A lot of work to do but not as much as the basket case that was my DR800"

    How long before you take it out of the van? 'coz, you know, it'll be easier to work on,just sayin'.


    The giveaway for me was the red engine cases, very much a mid 80's Honda thing and the gold swing arm with the Pro-link decal, it either XL250 or XL600 and you're not a 250 guy.Me neither.

    Yes for those that like/know about these things the red cases are a real give away.
    Partsguy you jest about getting it out of the van but actually there is more room in there than I have in my garage at present, slight logistics problem! Luckily I have a friend who has offered a bit of garage space for one of my bikes

    When I bought the DR (which I really like for its uniqueness which is only enhanced by riding it) I was looking for an XL/XR600 but couldn't find one at the right price. This bike I spotted at the MOT testers that I have used for years and I know the owner well. The bike was in for repairs and had sat there for some time (owner in no rush to have it back) 'don't suppose the owner will sell it for a sensible price?' bit of haggling and it is mine.

    2 weeks ago I could have said the same, finally made some room this week, just not nearly what I had hoped but still much better.Lot of cleaning up to do yet. My projects are not going well,it's takes the motivation out of you after awhile.Good luck with yours.
