It's ugly but I bet it will outrun a telephone call.

I love how it looks, but I would keep an eye on the engine mounting and frame. That's a torquey motor there, and only supported at two (?) points. Add in that the down tube is not tied back into the rear portion of the frame - well, just keep an eye on it I guess. I can envision some flex, vibration, and/or fatigue issues developing.

To add to the to do list: Get rid of the idiot light console in the cockpit.

How about replacing both guages with one of these-
Yeah acewell makes some nice gauges but I'm just going to stick with the temp and spedo.

I'm going to add a third mounting point that mounts to the top of the frame to behind the valve cover, but it can be done latter.

Just two more long weeks until I get to go home and work on it again. Ugh time moves so slow some times.

That looks like it's going to be a complete hoot to ride.

That thing would fit right in at the Dirtbag Challenge here in San Francisco this weekend.

I've been doing some work on it lately, it's getting real close to test riding it. Then it's time to break it down and paint it.

I'll post some more pictures when I get some time.

I'm really wanting to see this one come out well.

Lurking in the back of my mind for some time now has been a cafe built around a thumper like a DR650, YZF 426, or, if I could get my hands on one, a DR Big.

So far I'm digging your build. As long as the frame flex isn't an issue it should be a fun bike!
