The Honda XLS 125 BEFORE....

I know we all love before and after shots.  Seeing bikes, just like people, that have lost a ton of weight, transforming into that well build, strong and dependable being that we all envision.  Pipeburn’s newest post highlights a bike by a French builder named Laurent Huille, who would make any dietician proud…

This bike is the Honda XLS 125, a dirt bike with lights made for romping around the woods and trails, and at one time, transporting the Mujaheddin around Afghanistan, in their struggles with the Russians.  These are un-sexy but strong bikes, and have been known to run on sewer water.  Why not take this bike, and make it gorgeous?  That’s just what our French friend decided to do…
