We have been watching the builds of Andrew Greenland ever since his red Honda Dominator custom was featured on Bike EXIF years ago. Since then, Andrew has turned out a stable’s worth of froth-worthy Honda customs — many of which we plan to share in the coming weeks.
First up is his newest build, this hybrid Honda XR/XL/NX Dakar Project. Although the bike began life as an XL600R, the bike now carries XR600 suspension, XR500 plastics, LMF tank/seat, and an NX motor with electric start. Best of all, the bike is for sale!
Honda XL600R Dakar Scrambler: In the Builder’s Words
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!
