I think it was from a French site. I'd like to learn more about the conversion before buying a DR650 basket case.
Ahh.. The curse of the Basket Case Rebuild! Where you end up spending as much or more than buying a runner or even a new bike. Been there done that.Now if I could just apply that knowledge to old bicycles.The DR I bought is in rough shape. It's in boxes. Supposedly was burning oil until dumped at speed on a rural road. Tank is bashed. Frame looks straight, I think I can straighten the forks. Front rim is bent beyond truing, rear might be usable, but the wrecker threw a j-hook between the spokes and literally drug the bike up the side of the ditch. Connecting rod feels tight, piston ring groove will require boring. I'll grind the valves as a matter of course since the engine is already apart. Can't find the steering stem bearings. Probably lots of other bits missing. I've already printed off the parts catalog. When it warms up a little I'll take a better inventory. Might not be worth fixing with the price of parts these days. If not, I have a gokart with a blown engine.
