Suzuki SP 250 build: "Project Armageddon"

Hey all, i recently picked up a Suzuki SP250 for about 700 bucks. Naturally, as is the way with bikes i get my hands on, it turned into a project....

I put the front end from an' 87 DR200 on it, took apart and cleaned and painted the engine, the frame, the new forks, and the swingarm, and put it back together with some better parts here and there.

This is it so far....

Comments/suggestions welcome, this is my first dual sport and it's been fun so far but I'm open to ideas and advice!

Wow,you got some hours in that thing. I had a SP370 long ago that I put RM forks on,and found out an aluminum swingarm and shocks from an RM fit right on as well. It was kinda slow but I raced it anyways.

Aluminum swingarm you say? Hmmm....I may have to do some research, that could be a fun next step.

I have always wondered about those swingarm mounted passenger pegs.
Must be a fun ride for the pillion.

A buddy of mine have a 1982 Suzuki SP250. I was riding a 1988 Honda CR125 at the time and he would give me fits riding that thing with me practicing. He could jump all the obstacles on the track. He railed on that thing. Funny think is I let him race my DGY Yamaha YZ250 one time and he got dead last on the 2-Stroke but man oh man did he fly on that 1982 Suzuki SP250. Good days, good times.
