Awesome!

I always wanted to build my XT500 (the Aluminum Falcon) into a Dakar replica. Beautiful tank! Can't wait to see how it ends up...

Hi ED,
the swingarm is off from an XL350, but the work required to adapt it is really excessive !!!
The next time I will build one of them i start my job from a steel sheet !!!
The reason for which I have acted in this way, is the difficulty in finding chromium molybdenum steel bars.

Shock absorbers are long 33cm , but I think to replace them with Ohlins or Furlanes gas shocks.

Stay tuned !!!
