This bike was featured in a recent episode of Discovery/Velocity Channel’s Cafe Racer TV Show and think it is a quite interesting contraption. It was built for actress Katee Sackhoff (both a tomboy and girl-girl personality) by a small shop I never heard about with the unexpected name of “Moto Classified”.
It is based on a 1987 Honda XL600R dual sport frame and motor and for suspension uses a 2006 Triumph Sprint 1050 ST single-sided swingarm moving via a Progressive Suspension under-seat mono shock. Result is appealing to me, and if it is for you, this custom order is now going to be duplicated for a price around $16,000. I like these guys philosophy when they declare: “We don’t have any notions of what is a proper bike to own and enjoy, so we work with what’s available to create unique recycled motorbikes that transcend their humble beginnings.” Moto Classified.
