DR350 Links

Inspiration Sites
PipeBurn.com - Customs, classics, and cafe racers. Typically, simple and classy.  If TWM lands here, I won.
BikeExif.com - Customs of most kinds. Beautiful bikes, but most are more show than go with big budgets.

Street Trackers/DR350 Build Projects
Alan's DR800 - Super impressive (so far) DR800 build. Well above what I hope to accomplish, but cool non the less.
Crossed Purpose - Fun blog about a guy building an XR600 into a cafe racer.  While we are headed in two different directions and he has a head start, he's proof this mashup idea can work.
DisTech's DR350 - Comprehensive DR350 rebuild and upgrade thread. Great DR350 info here.
DR350 Supermoto - Not what I'm after, but good info and was completed on a $1,570 budget.
GN400 Tracker - A local builder's project to turn a GN400 into a ice racer/flat tracker.
Gregory Bender's DR350 - Excellent DR350 info from a DR fan; tricks, information, & links.
Ludwig's DR350 Page - Tons of DR350 specifications. The first stop for any potential DR350 buyer.
Middle Class Chops XR600 Street Tracker - A simple build with a ton of character.
NX650 Street Trackers - The closest motos I have seen to what this project hopes to become.
Pablo's DR350 - Well documented, thorough DR350 build with many DR350/250 comparisons.
ROC Street Tracker -Probably the most-viewed street tracker project on the internet, but for good reason.
Vintage Flat Trackers (vft.org) Street Tracker Index - A long list of inspiration.
XL600 Street Tracker - The blog that seeded the idea of building one myself.  I have read through this entire blog at least three times.
