...they already 'play' in the dirt.
Someday they'll actually manage to 'work' in the dirt.
I hate you guys for giving me these money-costing and hair-pulling ideas. That is all.
Sweet looking bikes though. I might start looking for some sort of thrashed bike to start building. Have tons of inspiration now, just need to see what comes up.
Not my bike saw it on another post thought its pretty cool. Some kind of Suzuki with a DRZ fork?
If I'm not mistaken,the guy that owns that bike is on here and has a thread on it.Being that I have six GS500s,I dig that convo.
I bet that would be a great rider!
Here is the info on Suzuki gs500
Here's mine zombieproof bike that I currently abuse:
now it's waterproof
a little build thread:
PS Does any body have a clue about putting spoked wheels and rear shocks replacements on a Honda FT500?
Maybe CZ250 Enduro shocks?
I think about them for my CB400N...
Exquisite! I like that one a lot. Sorry, I can't help with the wheel/shock selection.
Would I be wrong to think that your camera is probably worth more than your bike?
Well... I believe that it's NOT WHAT you ride, it's HOW you ride it. And same applies for photography, it's not the camera, it's the person behind it.
And to prove it: the bike was 450 EUR (running-ish), and my Nikon D200 is worth now about... 250 EUR. At least that's what a mint condition D200 goes for right now. And you may be right to deduce that my camera looks like my bike
More money for rides...
My Caponord heading the same way but loving it more and more...
Don't think I meant anything in a bad way. Cool ride, nice camera.
Not really a convert. The bike was stolen and trashed. So I stripped it down. The previous Suzuki is cool. Good forks, looks lke DRZ forks.The main problem with a conversion is the front forks. That is my current main limitation with this bike. True off road forks are generally longer. I would like to get something like CR500 forks, but they are too long. I really need the whole front end. Then don't make it too tall or the bike will be too top heavy. These forks are piston ? type. The newer cartridge ? forks are much better. If you are just going to fake it ? and really only ride the good roads, it doesn't matter but if you want a true dualsporter, you need to look carefully at how to solve the suspension problems.
I* once put a wheel from a Mini in the back end of a Honda CD175.
*My dad did the engineering bit. He used to work for Stanley Tools.

Well it took me long enough but I finally did it. Nothing so radical but I think it's an improvement. What do ya think?
I want a bike with an AIRBAG....that would make my wife happier.
No, patent granted. Goldwings have had an air bag option for several years now. Last I heard, which was a couple of years ago, it had been credited with saving three lives. All were similar incidents, a cage pulled right out in front of the bike. The air bag deployed and stopped the rider from impacting with the cage.
