6k euro .. ouch, one can buy a brand new bike for that.

Im pretty sure the materials used dont cost anywhere 1k E.... if you had to make it yourself.

Yes, we bought the bike just before the aluminum framed bikes were released. Even if we'd bought one, there wouldn't have been any kits available at the time...

Jonah Street's '06 Dakar bike:


It now belongs to a fellow inmate. I'm modifing a skidplate for it. It's very interesting to see how it's built: brackets are flemsy and much if it's held together with zip ties. The owner tells me the idea is that it's all going to get broken anyway so it's built to be easily repairable: kick the bracket back in place, add another zip tie, and go!

I think this must be Neduros bike from his "Rally Bike Rehab" thread. #98 from Dakar '06 as I recall. I must have missed a few pages of that thread because I never saw the project as a complete bike before. Very cool.

Exactly. I hadn't checked that thread out, really good stuff.

I would say it's fair considering the engineering and molds that they would have had to do in order to manufacture the tanks and fairing parts. Not to mention the kit comes with the electronics support and the electronics themselves. If you look through the parts list, there are a significant number of other parts which go towards strengthening many areas of the bike as well. An electrical harness is included to wire up all the extra electronics, and to top it all off, the Akropovic exhaust is included in the kit. It is designed to be a complete kit. Ready to Dakar after installation.


I've been looking at kits for other bikes and they are easily this much or close to it with a far less complete kit and much more fabrication/installation time required after you get it.

The only issue is JVO Racing looks to be moving to the new BMW 450X as their platform for rally kits. We'll see if I make the jump to the BMW by the time I'm ready to attempt the Dakar... or any other Rally for that matter!

#43 actually, but otherwise correct! (#99 is in Gaspipe's hands, #98 was turned back into a stock bike and resides in team wrench Niles' garage).

Yes, but you aren't buying the materials used so much as you're buying the thinking that went behind them. 6k sounds cheap to me, assuming that rear tank is durable enough. The front certainly looks awesome!

Getting closer, but the correct answer is #42.

Does your bike have any original markings? I still have some things like competitor numbers written on wheel hubs, last pack dates on silencers and things like that. I'm STILL running some of Charlies Dakar sponsor stickers.

There's a tech inspection seal on both the motor and frame. That's why I didn't bead blast/ powdercoat, and decided to do basically nothing cosmetic at all. I kept thinking "that's Dakar dirt" as I'd try to clean something and quit...
