Suzuki Dr 750 / 800 Cafemoto

Hello,
Im Volker from Germany and I'm a passionate BIG driver and now I have built my personal BIG for the road ( not off road ). 40 Kg lighter than the original.


This is a little Story about the Bike:
Conversion to DR Big Cafemoto.
Basis for the conversion is the enduro suzuki dr big 750 . I thought the thick cylinder has deserved better than to toil in an obese enduro. The 12 liter tank of a Yamaha SR 500 took place after some adjustments . There followed a cafe racer seat ( also various adjustments needed ) and supermoto wheels in size 3.5 x 17 with tires 120'er and rear 4.5 x 17 with tires 150'er . Most cables have been painstakingly well hidden. A fork brace took place in the series fork that has been refined with wilbers springs . Lamp , turn signals , handlebars, mirrors, etc. were changed course . Devil exhaust with a stainless steel manifold plays the song of the single cylinder .
All in all it takes a little brain power to it all fits together , but I'm happy with the result. The fun she has refueled with 170Kg on winding country roads is fantastic. I hope you like it.







Greetings from Germany, Volker
