Update time!

here is my early tentative list/plan:

- 40mm Head 100 Engine w/ skid plate and oil cooler
- Monolever/monoshock frame
- GS or G/S sub frame modified to fit
- Plastic or GS fuel tank (for longer range)
- GS or Suzuki DR650 front end with 21” wheel
- Seat? (Something that fits or will modify to fit, must be able to 2-up)
- Final drive that will work with an 18” spoke rear wheel
- Old school wide off road handle bars with heated grips and bark buster
- Minimal weight/electronic/wiring/emissions
- Single side exhaust
- G/S or other longer rear shock
- Small light crash bars with one flood/fog light
- Large Dual beam off road style headlight
- Cheap plastic dirt bike front fender
- Cheap rear fender or front fender that can be modified to fit rear
- light cheap saddle bag mounts.

1. Reliable
2. Practical/Functional
3. Powerful
4. Unique
5. Use as many used parts as possible to “recycle” and to save money, which is practical ;)

thoughts suggestions?!
