    12 inch over front forks, sissy bar, twin overhead fishtail exhausts, hardtail frame conversion,new tank, seat, handlebars, maybe?.
    A friend just got a great deal on the same model and he is happy with his.
    Haha! Nah I’m thinking more inspired by the 70s bikes of Stone and Mad max, double bubble screen, deep burgundy flake paint with some sort of design or gold striping.. not sure.

    I think around 35K bought it with 20K on it.
    It was a 92 851 new shape like the 888.
    Bought the tail piece and had it painted up like the factory 888 of the days.
    Added the Staintunes.
    Great handling bike and turned heads.
    Snapped a belt on it at the Singlton end of the Putty road in the winter one time, that was a shit day stuck on the side of the road for around 9 hours waiting for the transport guy to pick me up, he ws coming from Campbelltown.

    This guy I meet that was riding one had owned it from new.
    that would be a bad day breaking the cam timing belt!
    Sure was cold when it got dark.
    Was riding a mate (3 corners Stewie) he was on a 998R we both pulled out from behind a semi to rip past and my belt went, 3 corners never noticed as he was gone!
    He got to the 15 mins up the road before he noticed I was not coming, came all the way back worked out what was wrong then road all the way to the road house to call the transport dude then road all the way back to me.
    No GSM on Putty Road.
    We waited and waited about 5 hours then 3 corners rode back to the road house to see where the dude was, his mrs said he went out there and didn't find us and he was heading home to Campbelltown, he was at Windsor, she rang him and told him we where still waiting.
    He finally got there an picked me up at around 8.PM Bike broke down at around 10 AM.
    It was a shitful day.
    On a side note 3 corners Stewie got his name because he was an A grade road racer and when we use to ride up the old road I could on see him for the first 3 corners then he was gone, I would meet him at Road Warriors Servo.

    You've got the old yellow DR looking great. Also nice how you got the bike painted to match the piece of machinery in the background!

    4 stroke, so no. A PE250 would be a bit of a classic now though.

    This is my other bike, had it since '05, a BMW R100RS JPS.  Was my regular bike for many years, about 11 I think.  For about 5 of those 11 was my day to day going to work transport.  Now a club plate special.  A really great bike.
