John Ryland from Classified Moto Honda KT600 came out with a new customized Honda KT600 bike. The custom 1987 Honda XL600R enduro was commissioned by actress Katee Sackhoff. The team took a 1987 Honda XL600R Enduro and added some creativeness to the mix. Swapping the entire front end for the more popular Kawasaki ZX6-R.
John Ryland says;
“We’ve swapped front ends on probably 30 bikes at this point, so that was not a big deal,” says Ryland. “Maxum Machine did the triple tree conversion. But the rear end swaps are a lot more complicated. After much deliberation, Chase Metal’s Alex Heath fabricated a boxed section onto the frame to receive the swingarm. We used modified transmission gears to allow the front sprocket to clear the big 180 rear tire.”
