Absolutely gorgeous man!

I've got a spare DR and thought seriously about going this route. Actually almost exactly this route!

Would love to hear more about the parts you selected and how hard it was to get everything sorted. Tank mounting, seat, headlight, speedo, etc.

Great work. The fact you have a surfboard attached to this beautiful beast pretty much elevates you to god-like status in my book haha. Of course here in Maine I'd need a snowboard mount, but hey..

Thanks man appreciate it. I was quite surprised how smooth everything went. Took me 2 weeks few hours evenings and 2 full Saturdays. I'll put some pics up of the process. I had to manufacture a few brackets for tank and seat. Speedo fit straight on and headlights too. Wiring was pretty easy. Spraying the frame took most time just to tape everything up as I did not remove the motor. Tyres are 604b trailmax tyres, standard rims. Let me know what else you wanna know. I must say I learnt a lot and Google is great . Was a great experience. I am keen to do a DR 650 next.

I just made these side covers from a round pizza baking plate. Cut with tin scissor and put rubber strip around. Did the oval numberplates the same way.

Slick! Cookie sheets are a great idea.

I painted my frame a few years ago as well, but had the engine out. Did you strip the old paint? I used stripper on the entire frame and it was an absolute nightmare! Did eventually get it down to the metal, but my rattle can job is not perfect, I suspect it could have used a few extra wash cycles to get all the chemical residue off. We had some heavy rain/humidity in the middle of my paint job which I don't think helped. Overall it has worked out though - nothing a few touch ups couldn't fix.
