HECTIC ÉCLECTIQUE. A Honda XR600 Cafe Motard from Duke Motorcycles

Last night we had a bike builder that had reverted to a classic, or standard, look for his build. A little tired of all the cafes, scramblers and trackers, he’d wiped the slate clean and started from scratch. Well, Lionel from France’s Duke Motorcycles found himself with a similar challenge, but his solution was quite different. Instead of looking back to move forward, he’s mixed and matched the cafe and motard genres to spawn his own style; a Honda XR600 he’s calling ‘a melenge between a supermotard and a cafe racer’. OK Lionel, you’ve got our attention.

As always, we began by talking a little shop with Lionel. “Right now, the business is going well and we will soon attack a series of very beautiful Honda projects including a CB750, a 500FT and a big job on a Yamaha XS650.” Only the French could make customising a bunch of old, greasy bikes sound so damn poetic.
