After months of searching craigslist, ebay, forums and dealerships for a suitable bike to turn into a daily commuter/ trails bike, I found a 1995 DR350S. Originally I was going to buy a brand new WR250R, but couldn't justify spending $6K on something that I was going to abuse, torture and most likely spray paint. Thanks to craigslist I found this DR350S (dirt bike version with pumper carb) in great shape. Single owner, never laid over, and runs great. He had already fitted it with turn signals and a mirror. I purchased the bike thinking it would be a breeze converting it to street legal. How wrong was I... In the crazy state of New Mexico you can build a motorcycle from scratch, and as long as it has a headlight, brake light, signals, mirror, etc, they will give it a license plate. But you can never, NEVER, convert a dirt bike into a street legal bike. Even if it has the appropriate parts. So begins this thread.
