    I chickened out of selling it. It hardly gets ridden but I realised that if I get rid of it, I'll never get another one. SO, it's staying in the workshop.
    Cheers.

    There have been some very nice customised DR750's and DR800's shown on the site over the years but my favourite is this one.

    That's very impressive considering how few of these bikes are in the States. I've got a rebuild in my future for the 93 DR800 I'm re-building. I'll give you a call when I get to that point, Thanks


    GN....rebuild kits vary with price and availability. Finish your profile or let us know what part of the world your in and the local guys will likely jump in to assist.

    It may not be functional for off road riding as it's obviously been built for the road. It's the concept, the detail and the work that has gone into it that you have to appreciate. I think it's incredible!
    Cheers.

    when in doubt, I get my parts from: http://www.wemoto.com/
    parts shipped in approx 3days to france.

    so I guess it should be the same to italy :)

    I had a "pissing" carb problem caused by the O'rings gone square...
    I've bought a wallet full of O'rings, around 400 O'rings in all "standard metric sizes" for 20 euros.
    They are not rated "fuel approved" though, but for the price, so far so good.

    HTH,

    Pulled up here at the Wollandilly River, the side curb makes for a good seat.

    Well, actually it is "rough" approach to details that puts me off most (being perfectionist) - but this is purely subjective, no arguing from my side of course.

    If you look closely you see a lot of it. Frame side covers at battery area - cutoffs from DYI supermarket piece of metal, not really correctly shaped, not "factory" feel. Belly pan pieces - rough bends, "approximate" shapes etc. etc.
    I do prefer when bike have "lines" rather than "pieces"....but then I am old-fashioned :lol3

    Thanks for the photos, Rob. I always like seeing the opposite season.

    Looks like a dry year for you. The countryside is remarkably similar to California. You'd feel right at home here.

    We're in the middle of spring with green everywhere and the grass just starting to think about turning brown for the summer.

    Very cool Pics, reckon when my DR800 is finished, we could do a house swap for a month. I'll leave you the DR keys and a fridge full of beer :1drink
