Man i want an adv bike now. Looks great
They're out there, and usually more affordable than your standard street bike, you just have to think outside of the box.

Just thought I'd put a few pics up for posterity. Parts trickling in. Renthal low CR bend bars from eBay for $30. Also the elusive ttr250 rear wheel that matches the swingarm. At least 10lbs lighter than the OEM drum unit. Stark difference. Things are progressing nicely. Making parts like the KTM master, unknown braided line and RMZ brakes work together is Interesting, but I didn't buy it out of a show room!

You gonna extend the seat into the recess in the tank? I still have my dr600 pan... wonder if it would fit? And shipping to usa?!

I'm gonna toss that seat out all together. I have a late model dr650 seat on the way I got for nothing, so I'm gonna give it a go first and see what happens. Thanks man!

nice beefed up forks... we straight out switched to DR750 forks on the "Petronasty". I have a lot of love for these DRs, especially the 600. very few people seem to work on them (has a kinda awkward frame i guess) but the keeps the prices nice and low... looking forward to seeing this project.

Big day today. Got a seat off of craigslist for $15 for a 2010 DR650. I took a gamble that it would work and after a few mods, she did!

Tank mount for seat front:



Rear mounts:



Not bad!


Next up was getting the rear wheel sorted. I bolted the bottom end of the motor in and ran a straight edge between the sprockets and figured out pretty quickly that the stock wheel spacers wouldn't work. So off to the lathe to whittle out these:











The spacers are designed to seal agains the factory wheel seals of the TTR wheel but relocates the wheel 10mm to the left to allow the chain to run true. Brake lines up perfectly. So then I went through and added gussets to the shock linkage mounts:





And that leaves us here. Good progress day!







Great progress day!

Looking good! Now, if you switch out the motor and frame you'll have yourself a new bike =)

Well the motor will be rebuilt, and it'll get wired from scratch so really it'll be an 82 in VIN# only!

Jokes on you Kiley. I wrote all the unclaimed 2015 Sad Handies off on taxes. Obama approved.

Looking good. I need to get back on my 2t. I need to re-read all this again. Thread is solid. 10/10.
