That is truly a work of art. How does it handle? How long did it take to build it? I need that!

the thing handles like a dream, i wanted something for trails and soft dirt and sand and i figured the tw wheels would be the best bet. off road the bike is super stable now. it goes right over soft sand and dirt and right over grooves and ruts super smooth.no more feet out going through rough stuff it just goes straight through. and there is so much traction climbing over dirt or even rock and boulders since the backend has a huge contact patch now. on the road it works better than i expected too. it handles like my old supermoto in the turns with so much grip and traction front and rear. on the freeways it is super smooth and cruising at high speeds it is super stable. no more catching grooves in the roads, it goes straight over them and it rides way better and all the imperfections in the road are smoothed out with the bigger tires.i have to say it is a do it all setup now. usually you have to give up a little for dirt riding if you want a good road setup and give up good road manners to have a good dirt setup but it does everything perfect now.out of the few hundred bikes i have owned this setup is by far the best. i think it looks cool too!

How much trouble did you have with the triple clamps & rear axle? I have to say it looks neat enough to be "factory". I'd like to build one myself, and was wondering if you could post a little more detail about the build if you wouldn't mind. My wife had a TW200 up until a year ago and I had a ball riding it from time to time, this just takes it to a whole new level.

hi, the triple clamps and forks are off a 00 yamaha yz426. it bolts right on the dakar with a 1/4 inch spacer since the yz stem was a little longer. some yz forks bolt right on without the washer or spacer though.i went with the whole yz frontend to make it easy.the rear axle on the tw wheel is the same 17mm size so that was easy too. i have a writeup on the tw wheel too, look under the thumper section under kubiaks tw650 build. let me know if you have more questions. thanks!

Thanks K, I did check out the thread, suscribed too! It all seems relatively straightforward. Looks like I've found a new project.

I've got an old DRZ400 sitting at the back of the shed, needs a lot of work to get her up and going well again, this project looks like a lot of fun though.
