Dr Big

From Volker in Germany

The basic for the conversion is the enduro suzuki DR Big 750. I thought the big single cylinder engine with 779 ccm deserved better than to toil in an obese enduro. The 12 litre tank of a Yamaha SR500 took place after some adjustments. There followed a cafe racer seat (also various adjustments needed) and supermoto wheels in size 3.5 x 17 with tyres 120'er and rear 4.5 x 17 with tyres 150'er. Most cables have been painstakingly well hidden. 
A fork brace took place in the series fork that has been refined with wilbers springs . Lamp , turn signals , handlebars, mirrors, etc. were changed of course. Devil exhaust with a stainless steel manifold plays the song of the single cylinder. 
All in all it takes a little brain power to fit it all together, but I'm happy with the result. The fun she has refueled with 170Kg on winding country roads is fantastic. 
With best regards from germany, Volker
