Hidden Potential - Yamaha TR1 Cafe Racer

If there's one builder who perfectly blends race track styling into his road going motorcycles it's Pepo Rosell of XTR Pepo. However, to assume these street bikes are all show and no go would be a huge mistake. Pepo's work is backed by years of experience and his knowledge of motorcycles is...
