Two easily restorable bikes and one that started off as a scrap heap...I appreciate the work that goes in to bringing something back from the garve, I just wish kanticoy had spent a little more time on the final finish. Anyhoo...My vote is in.

Done and dusted.

If it helps, everything is refinished, it’s just refinished to maintain the patina. 2k clear on the tank, all of the frame and wheels are powder coated, etc.
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.

This bike was indeed a scrap heap. Literally bought it off of a scrap trailer full of abandoned junk at barbers. The story goes, I traded a set of tires for  a locked up and neglected DR500 several years ago from CycleFreak73 and turned it into a dual sport mongrel over 3 different versions. At the end of the day I had a titled DR500 frame since I swapped the original motor into a later model DR650 frame sitting in the shop. I have had a dream of building a bobber around a pair of leading link forks I have had in the rafters from buying them at a swap meet about 7 years ago and I figured this titled DR frame was the perfect candidate. The heavens opened up and dumped the scrap heap DR500 in my lap at the booth across from our spot at barbers last year and the game was on! Ended up spending the better part of the year rebuilding every part of the bike into the crazy thing you see today. Turned out better than I expected!
