No secret there - the bike came up from Malaga to the UK in a van. For the last trip it had a 21 l. Acerbis tank. Still, it has a pretty big tank now; a 36 l. job which I think may have been made originally by African Queens. I bought it off Nick Palmer (of Desert Rats) who was selling it for Richard Fair. Richard used it in the Dakar (late 90's I think). It needed a fair bit of repair work. This, some crash guards and a carbon bash-plate was made up by the excellent "DOME Motorsport." Denis Osborne at DOME did the prep on Mick Extance's bike.
I've been working on a colour scheme. Was thinking of late 80s Honda Rally colours: white with red, light blue and dark blue bands. What do you guys think?
Also, got a Mikuni flatslide to fit at some point, though I'm tempted to get an Edelbrock. I fancy some Pivot Pegz too, but I don't think they make them for an XR600. Toys, toys ....
