Restoring A legend - the iron horse

In this episode of Restoring A Legend – The Iron Horse, Adam Riemann unveils his latest restoration endeavour: a second 1992 Africa Twin XRV750, he has affectionately named The Iron Horse. This is not just a story about the mechanics of restoration; it’s a narrative that celebrates the unbreakable bond between a rider and their steadfast companion.

In the vast and rugged world of motorcycling, stumbling upon your “forever-bike” is akin to discovering a treasure trove not marked on any map. This elusive beast isn’t just another machine; it becomes an extension of your very essence, traversing thousands of kilometres, each mile embedding itself deeper into your soul.

Your forever bike is more than a vehicle; it’s a bearer of stories, a witness to your trials, tribulations, and triumphs. It’s a relationship forged in the heat of adventure and the calm of solitude, a partnership that tests your limits, challenges your resilience, and sometimes, leaves scars that tell tales of your journeys together. Yet, amidst the challenges, it’s the source of unparalleled joy, a constant in the ever-changing landscape of life. It becomes clear that this bike is not just an object of desire but a keeper of your most cherished memories.

But here’s the twist, the realisation that one forever-bike is not enough. The heart yearns for a duplicate of that irreplaceable companion, not out of necessity, but from an inexplicable bond that calls for preservation beyond the availability of spare parts or the fear of irrevocable change. This quest leads to the Iron Horse, a legend in its own right, standing as a testament to the idea that some connections are too profound to be left to fate.

Embarking on the restoration of the Iron Horse is not merely about reviving a machine; it’s about ensuring that the spirit of adventure, the essence of freedom, and the undying bond between rider and ride continue to thrive. In the world of motorcycling, some legends never fade; they are reborn, ready to write new chapters, with the road as their canvas.

Restoring A Legend – The Iron Horse is a homage to these timeless bonds, a celebration of enduring legacies, and a journey into the heart of what it means to be a motorcyclist.

    Mate, you could truly see the joy in your eyes when you ignited the warhorse.
    Some things in life just give you the Fizz, and I can see the warhorse gives you the “Fizz”.

    Great to see another one in WA. I have just found my version of the Warhorse here in the UK so will be getting down to a full resto soon.
    There are a lot of nice examples in Europe if you ever want another one!
