A wee note about myself... I'm not a chopper or bike nut never really got road riding kinda why I never did anything with my learner licence, had it now for 22yrs
What I am is a petrol head and the worst type... if it has a motor and it moves (I would say wheels but I have even modified my digger) I have to modify it, it got that bad I now modify other peoples toys to pay for my shed lol
This is where the bike comes in
The $1000 challenge, started on a friday night in the shed with some mates on the piss, they were complaining about the cost of modifying and cert, me being a man up for a challenge started off betting them I could heavily modify a vehicle for $1000 by the end of my box I was up too " for a $1000 I could buy, modify and cert a vehicle...."
At the time I had a daft idea about building a 2 up front trike powered by a 13bt rotory motor that you ride like a bike (well outside the $1000 budget lol), but I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone, win the bet and finish my bike licence I'll need the licence to ride the trike if I ever build it lol
So put the word out.... after a bit a mate gave me the word about an old DR250 that was mostly there.... carb was shot and there is that little compression you could turn it over on the kick start with your pinky finger lol but at two box's of woodies it was priced right
That was the start.... as it sits there is a heap of stories in it and i've still got $120 in the budget
It got pushed aside due to work and other projects but due to my back playing up I'm back into it...
