This is cool man.  Nice progress.  I really love the routing of the header on this bike - the cool big loop around the frames down tube then out to the back.  Is that stock btw?

The header from the factory loops to the left. This has had some extra put into it to get it to swing across to the right.

Killer! This is the only other DR500 I can recall seeing on DTT other than mine. Here's how mine turned out. Some assembly required.

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Went to the local wreckers. Said a mate said they had wrecked an RG250. Owners says yeah 25 years ago. Ask if he had a speedo from it. He says he has two. Gets a drill with a bit of speedo cable in it. Both speedos work. I buy one.

The RG speedo matches the RG front wheel fitted to the DR500. Speed will be show correctly.
