    Leovince, Arrow, Sebring build 2-2 systems. Why do you want one? I'm desperately looking for a good-fitting, affordable 2-1 system. The GPR I have currently is useless.

    I have an '88 that I picked up in Maine in April '06.
    Aftermarket shock and SuperTrapp Exhaust (removed, stock replaced).
    Need to build a luggage rack before taking it to Mexico (one of these daze).
    Haven't done much off road yet.
    Planning on Laurel Fork this year. :1drink

    Jeezus, that's a seriously sexy Domi! :clap Exactly what I wanted to do with mine...but I went the simple and cheap way in the end. Wow again.

    Here's the link to the complete ride report.

    That has to be the coolest re-work of a Dommi I have ever seen!:thumb Was there a write up of the process? I would love to understand some of those pictures more.... If not, please do, I think we could all benefit from the knowlege. I myself have been thinking of reworking mine since it looks like it will be sticking around a while. (new F800gs that is on order on perma hold to the USA). I have been thinking of doing a "Dakar" style dual headlight set up. After installing the larger Acerbis tank, my front faring has never fitted like it should and I think a custom job would be so much better. Plus I think an all black bike with white reflective "NX" labeling would look pretty damn cool. :evil

    Thanks for the share, but give me more!

    Over one the Ozdom yahoo boad http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/ozdom/ there is a fine fellow that has stepped up to the plate to order the larger tank:clap . Here is an abbreviated copy of his post.

    I already have one and have no relation to this group buy, but I know how valuable these things are and they do not come up every day. Enjoy

    Wow! LOTS of pictures!

    My old dog has learned some new tricks.

    With the spare supermoto wheel set it can change from (knobby) Clark Kent to "SUPERMOTO" in 20 ~ 30 mins.

    Lots of mods to suspension have made it a decent bike.
