With every bike from XTR Pepo I can start with a story about how amazing his work is, that he’s a true legend and a master builder. Just like this time ;). Pepo is simply one of the best custom bike builders out there. Most of his latest builds are bikes inspired by endurance racers. He also likes Ducati’s a lot. Not surprising, since Jose “Pepo” Rosell has a long history with this brand. And to be honest, I don’t mind. His bikes are awesome! After a list of endurance racers, most Ducati’s (and this BMW), Pepo created something different.


If we say cafe racer, we see a lot of the same base bikes like the Honda CB, BMW R-series, retro Triumph’s and so on. The Honda Shadow is not such a “usual suspect”, but that’s the kind of challenge Pepo likes. It’s called “Spitfire”.

Pepo always puts in a lot of work, let’s summarize some of the main customizations.As you can expect, a full list of mods is provided by Pepo, which you can find below the images.


In order to change the chopper stance of the stock Shadow, the frame is heavily modified: Pepo created a new sub-frame and swing arm. Pepo also likes to shop parts from other bikes and used the complete front from a Kawasaki ZX6R with a Suzuki GSXR750 clip ons and brake pump. The clutch lever is from a GSXR600 and the headlight is from a Mash (!) 125. The gas tank comes from a Yamaha YBR125 and the gas cap also from a GSXR750. The foot pegs are from an R1. Parts fabricated by XTR are the front mud guard, the rear (carbon) mud guard, gear lever, air filters, seat and upholstery and the license plate holder.


The master builder did it again: he turned a scrappy machine into gold.
