It’s hard to resist the sound and spectacle of a classic endurance racer. And no one knows that better than Pepo Rosell of @xtrpepo.
This is ‘Rocket,’ a Triumph Legend TT that looks like it’d be at home in the pit lane at Le Mans. It’s got the engine upgrades to match, with ported heads, free-flowing DNA air filters and the exhaust headers from a Speed Triple.

Here’s the latest from @xtrpepo — a BMW R100R with an endurance racer vibe. ‘Don Luis’ tips the scales at a mere 165kg and sports a 24-litre tank swiped from a Guzzi.
The engine has been completely rebuilt with high compression pistons, a racing cam and re-worked heads. But our favorite part is the twin headlight setup …

Exclusive: The first official custom BMW S 1000 RR, revealed today in France. It’s designed to capture the spirit of the classic 1980s endurance racers, with paint inspired by the first BMW art car—Alexander Calder’s 1975 3.0 CSL Le Mans racer.
It’s incredible work from the high end Paris custom house @_praem_, under commission from @bmwmotorrad_france.

During an endurance race through the Amazon, a stray dog shared food with a group of racers, then followed them for the entire 430-mile race. Even when they got in their kayaks, he refused to be left behind and started swimming. They crossed the finish line together, brought ‘Arthur’ home, and started a charity to support stray dogs.

While it seems that the 917 gets all the Porsche endurance racer love, I’ve always preferred the pretty 910 (and it’s development the 907). Where the 917 is an awesome, brutal wedge, these earlier cars are more appealing to me; curvacious yet dainty, and super-lightweight. This is from last year’s AvD Oldtimer GP.
Take BMW’s finest superbike, give it classic endurance racer bodywork, and coat it with 1970s-style BMW art car paint. This new build from @bmwmotorrad_france and @_praem_ is on pole position for our Bike Of The Year.

Loving the endurance racer vibe on the Moto Guzzi Mille GT from @redondamotors of Portugal.
We reckon builder João Barranca has come up with a cool alternative to the typical Euro cafe racer look. What do you think?
