What you are describing is a DR 350 with a big bore kit, only it will cost a little less and you don't need to change the oil all that often.

It's a tall bike and you're too light for it. Gain more weight so you can squish the springs down more when you sit on it.

I'd weld the nuts and paint that area. It's well protected so the paint won't get scraped off, no one will ever see it but you.
