Pjdaves DRZ 400 scrambler
« on: Dec 18, 2014, 18:43:59 »
Ok, after looking around for a XR600 and not finding anything worthy I came across a DRZ 400e going cheap. The plan is to have a reliable comuter bike with retro styling. Stock suspension and running gear, but with all metal tanks and gaurds all bolted to a custom bolt on subframe. Anyway here is where Im at.

Following! Can we get some info on the wheels?  Got a buddy with a DR that wants to shift to road wheels.

It's crazy how you can hardly see the DRZ in it anymore.  Looks cool.

Hey, The wheels are 17" re spoked on the stock hubs. Im not reusing the stock radiators as they clash with the tank, either getting a custom one built or something off say a current model CBR 500. 
Had a bit of set back last week, the PO tightened the bejesus out of every bolt on this bike, Ive had to cut a few off to remove parts, anyway whist undoing the header I snapped the cylinder head mount, so now I have to find a new head one and redo the top end on a perfect running motor.
Alloy fenders are in the mail,  I can then complete tacking up mounts on the subframe before final welding everything.
