Don Luis by XTR Pepo

Please allow me to explain the following. Bike presentations on as well as most of the other Websites mostly consist of a story written to illustrate the motorcycle as well as the builder or the workshop. Maybe some behind-the-scenes stuff is added before you get to the bugging part of implementing all the tech-specs into that story. That part often turns into a quite boring read.


Basically, it’s easier for everyone involved if the background story is told right at the beginning followed by a neat list of the modifications and parts used on the bike. That way, it’s up to the reader to read everything or just pick the parts he’s interested in.


In this particular case, namely a new bike from Madrid based XTR Pepo, things are a little different. There’s not much left to say that hasn’t already been told last month , or the one before, or the one before that. Because Pepo Rosell is building bikes at the rate of an express train, each one of them better than the next one. But the story of the man remains the same.


That’s why we should marvel at the pictures of this 1992 BMW R100R named Don Luis and ask ourselves; what Pepo will come up with next month?

Here’s for the Tech-Specs, if you’re looking for ideas. You can get more information on XTR Pepo’s WEBSITE as well as his FACEBOOK or INSTAGRAM pages.
