Spitfire by XTR Pepo

Some things can easily be overdone. Just have a look at selected faces during the next Academy Awards and you’ll get what I mean. I know this has nothing to do with motorcycles, but it sums up the idea pretty well. So next time you’re in a bar and someone tells you about his plans to transform a Honda Shadow 400 into a Die-Hard Cafe Racer, you’ll know you’re probably talking to a nutcase. Maybe he has seen a Shadow-based bobber on Pinterest and is determined to build that Cafe Racer with his Home Depot toolkit. How hard can it be, right?

But if this bar is located in the Spanish city of Madrid, you might refrain from hasty judgements. That’s because the guy telling you about his Shadow-based Café Racer could be Pepo Rosell from XTR Pepo. If you’re a regular to this website, you’ll probably know by now that Pepo should not be underestimated when it comes to building exceptional bikes.
