I'm glad I just found this thread... I have kept track of most of the previous sporty adventure threads. I have an 87 rat tracker 1200 I just half assed created haha. I actually put it up for trade on craigslist for a big bore dual sport, but took it off the next day recalling my original reason for purchase 6 months ago...adventure. I have kids and literally no time for proper ingenuity and fabrication so I feel as if I will never achieve the quality I see in my visions. So budget adventure sporty it will be and I'll just have to work alot harder to get through the hairy stuff than everyone else! I am in san jose, so if you do start making kits etc, that will save me some dough on shipping !!!!!!! Your work is inspirational!
