Don's Suzuki DR500
|The internet is a good place to find another
bike for Don. He wanted this one to have more of a dirtbike. So the big
voyage to Northern Africa has found its' first victim!
The only thing that needed to be done was a new clutch cable. It appeared that all bearings were new, too. Installed by the previous owner.
|It's an old thing, from 1985, but sure as hell
looks good with a wooden hammer! The bike rides like it should, very flexible.
It has a 6 Volt electrical system, a taillight and of course a mirrow in
which you can see Jack...
(anyone cares who that might be?)
|According to these pics you can see that it rides and can hold a lot of stuff. After composing this all at Don's place, we drove it to Tom's and there we welded, saw, cut and did more to finish it all up.|
|Flat black, what else! Wiring up is done by Tom, a specialist in this area. After this, testriding is next!|
