Converted to dual-sport? POST PICS!!

Guys, I am looking to see pictures of converted street bikes and cruisers to dual sport. I am contemplating doing a conversion myself on a nighthawk.

How about a Lite ADV conversion of a Nighthawk 750 ... Its been dubed the "Wee-Hawk".







Handguards from a Suzuki DL1000, Heated Grips, Avon Distanzia Tires, and all new Proggresive Suspension all the way around.
(Im still working on more stuff for it)

Wat ooit in 2002 z'n leven begon als een Honda Hornet 900, is in mijn handen verandert naar een Honda XRF900...













Ingredienten:
Basis: Honda cb900f frame+blok+tank ongewijzigd
Uitlaat: Honda cbr900rr fireblade ( helaas onder het blok door, maar met een bescherming er omheen een mooie bescherming voor het blok)
Voorvork+wielen+remmen: Honda xrv750
Koplamp+plestik: Yamaha XT600

Nog te doen:
Kleuterbeugels om de tank en het blok.
plestik kap om de kont, zodattie niet zo veel zand schept.
carter (uitlaat) bescherming onder blok door.

Vandaag de eerste zandweggetjes gepakt: vanaf 40km/h in z'n 6 speertie er fantastisch vandoor. 40km/h in z'n 3 is onverantwoord (!)
De motor is met z'n originele uitlaat ongelofelijk stil waardoor er herten in de berm zoineens schrikken, da's al een reden voor een blerpijp.
Vorige week met het vehikel naar de RDW voor een kenteken, staat "gewoon" als cb900 geregistreerd, maar ik noem hem bij deze XRF900


ps: die afstapper: dat heb ik niet mee gemaakt, heb hem er zo bijgekocht..

Gegroet,
Marko

the terra mostro is obviously kick ass - but OMFG that nighthawk and 919 are outrageous and while both are very cool, the 919 gets my vote and is absolutely stunning!!
