We do like a big single cylinder thumper cafe raceronce in a while, and this Honda XR650L Cafe Racer is a beautiful reason why!

The builder of this beautiful Honda XR650L Cafe Racer (Rex) was kind enough to share some images of the bike along with some basic specs.

Rex built the Citrus Cafe Racers’s frame using his own design which features a mono shock rear suspension system. The Citrus Cafe Racer uses TZ250 Geometry, fork, swingarm, wheels and tank and one reader had guessed but the engine is a high compression Honda XR650L which has been increased to 660cc.

Rex also says the reason for the Cafe Racer label on the tank is because if he’d stuck a Honda badge on the tank people would just assume it was an old model…and this bike is clearly much more than a cleaned up classic.
