Nice one Noobie!

You have done a great job on your bike, now that its all ready, we should go for a ride sometime.

By the way, he bought he headlight and front mudguard from RAD Moto, its a Polysport plastic, not sure it was meant for his DR650, but he drilled a few holes in it and it worked perfectly.

Looks amazing dude! Well done once again.
I like your LED's by the way!  :laughing4:

Enjoy your bike!

Thanks man, once I had drawn the design on CAD I just emailed it to the laser cutter

They charged me R30 to do it, BARGIAN! :thumleft:

Looks great!! Well done!!  :thumleft:

What paint did you use on the plastics? I would like to change my rear fender to black and the headlight shroud to white.

What front fender is that?

Enjoy your bike!!  :ricky:

BTW...Do you want to sell your pillion pegs? I see you removed them.

Let me try answer some questions on behalf of Noobie until he gets a chance to reply himself:

1.) No he didnt raise the suspension. Might just be an illusion based on the Camer angle of the photo.
2.) He used Rustoleum Spraypaint, Noobie would have to give you the exact colours / variants.
3.) That front fender is from RAD Moto, it's a Polysport Plastic, potentially meant for a KTM, but slightly modified with bigger drilled holes for mounting onto the DR650.
4.) I'm pretty sure Dane would sell his Pillion Pegs, although if I remember correctly, only one of them had springs.

His other stuff as advertised is still available for sale, all the Wild Dogs who had 1st dibs, never ended up putting the money where their mouths are, so first who pay up, get the goods.

I'm Noobie's neighbour, that's why I am so closely involved with the progress of this bike, its been an awesome 2 months of watching this bike take shape.

Cheers

Must say it looks great.....but, I've yet to see painted plastics that don't peel!!
Hope I'm wrong but I won't ever paint plastics because of this....show us again after a bit of use and especially offroad use
