i'll just say what's already been said many times over - but just wow, that is one amazing build. great work and attention to detail, i would have issues riding it at this point! i bought my 2004 wr450 with the intention of making it a motard also - and it was clean enough to make it pretty at that point too. however, i rode it on the dirt a couple times and got hooked.....man it looks like a big heap of junk compared to that beaut! also really enjoy the sharing of ideas (even without a lot of response at times) - especially the piston oiling. thanks for keeping this going, it's been an amazing read.
