Yep it's a Dommie!

It's one of my lovers I had one back on the 90's so when I was preparing the Transamazonica trip I found one from 98 in good shape and start to work with it.

She look like this when I buy it:



I like the simpliciti of the bike but she really needed a better suspentions so...



I adapted one inverted fork from one Husqvargna...



found some fairings and 30 lit. tank from a older KTM Adventure...



one swingarm and 18' weel from one XR 650



one ohlins shock and luggage system from by BMW GS...



tested



and again...



added some paintwork...



and it is ready to travel...



pack everyting




and shipped to Venezuela...



then we celebrate



one of this day I have to find time to post all the modifications...
