If you can dream it, you can build it!
You've got the right attitude Gypsy_Writer! It looks like I need to start perusing CL for a Buell 984 motor...
I don't know if I could call it "Converted to Dual Sport," but here is my current project:
It's a 1971 Honda SL350 Twin that I decided needed more suspension travel The front end is from a '94 XR250L (41mm Showas). Out back, I'm planning on using a modified CR500 swing-arm (with brackets welded on for dual-shocks), it's matching 18" rear wheel/brake system and a set of XR500'ish lay-down rear shocks.
I've got a long way to go yet, but can't wait to try out the end-result! If all goes to plan, I'd like to be riding the TAT on this beast someday!
- I like this one (probably because I rode one of those in my younger days) I'll be watching, keep us posted!
That's cool! Mount the 500 in it while you're are it. lol
Found this on eBay:
I'd sport it!
That front fender is huuuge. I bet it must not be fun to ride at night, because the headlight looks like it would barely do anything with the fender right in the way.
Aside from that, it looks great!
Thanks Rick! I've been following Team OSR for awhile now and have gotten a ton of inspiration, motivation and tech tips about building my SL350 from you guys. I've learned from you all, testing your SL to the limit in Baja, that if I do my part in putting everything together right, my SL350 should be able to handle my slow and noob'ish trail riding skills with no problems... You guys have built one tough bike!
Dude, this bike will be awesome. I swing towards modernism and advancements in technology, but I'm feeling it.
Cool Scoot, hell yea I'd ride that one - sold good price too for such a nice ride.
From this weekend 700km 'test' ride of tyres and cuffs. Soft-offroad, macadam, dirt, bad roads, good asphalt, wet, dry etc. Tyres performed excellent except on mud, as expected
Front suspension (w10 and progressive springs) satisfactorily, rear needs more stroke.
I figure the geniuses who design & perform the bad-ass bike transformations here might be able to help find a part that I need. It's probably simple....but my parts bin knowledge is pretty limited.
I am looking for a small fan that will fit behind my WR450 radiator. The maximum width is 5". I think a 4" puller fan is what I need. Only thing that I saw on ebay was brand new and $50...
Does anybody have one laying around, or know where I can find one that's affordable? I don't know of a bike sold in the US that came with such a small fan. Do any of you know of one?
Thanks for any help.

radioshack has small fans...
Fan with holder, from Honda CBR600/1000 F ?
I run two 12v computer fans on my DRZ400E. Brushless and sumersible. Cheap as chips and never had one fail yet after 14000km.
Wait, are you saying all 12V computer fans are immersible?
Only the brushless units. I can only speak from my personal experience as i've had the fans underwater several times on this bike with no ill effects. They are light and mine are held onto the core with zip ties!
Care to post an Amazon or NewEgg link to the fan(s) you use?
Do I really have to? The things are 10 bucks each FFS. Do some research,buy em fit em and try it out for yourselves. Why does everyone have to defend their decisions on this site? cheeeesh.
