The success of building the ultimate adventure ready motorcycle hinges on donor bike as the wrong base may never pan out to no matter how much energy goes into the build. Herencia Motor Company of Buenos Aires, Argentina knows the importance of selecting the optimal foundation for a successful resto mod, as most of their bikes are immaculate street tracker builds, and their 1986 Honda XL600R ‘Dirt Trooper’ is definitely a bike whose past looks as bright as its future.

Deeply rooted in executing the project correctly, the team at HMC chose this Honda dual sport as their adventure bike platform due to its history of being a well engineered machine capable of standing the tests of time. With the engine and chassis being in relatively solid shape, with the only engine mod being a slip on exhaust canister reused from a previous Ducati build. The original subframe was hacked off in favor of a Ducati Scrambler unit, including the seat and tail section, and the stock fuel tank was swapped out for a BMW R100 can that is neatly modified to look like a rugged metal safari style gas can. Capped off with front and rear cargo racks, the Dirt Trooper is a retro rig that is ready to rip.
