  • Nice one Calum, not a cheap build then? Looks stunning so far, glad you said I could have first ride๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    @oldman Trust me, you don't want to know the price of this build.

    Let's just say you could buy a brand new KTM EXC 250 2 Stroke Fuel Injection model...and have change, enough change to buy a semi-decent DT. Sorry Oldman, I doubt many people will get to enjoy riding this bike. So long as it doesn't get nicked that is.



  • You get paranoid don't you when you know people are too ready to steal your stuff, I am always as cautious as possible and always keep everything under lock and key. Have taken every reasonable step to protect my garage, building new shed/workshop enclosed in rear garden this year to kรจep prying eyes away, don't even like working with garage door up to be honest as only takes someone to mention they saw a nice bike when passing and rumours spread to God knows where. Once you go to the lengths to create something special if it's stolen that bike can never be replaced no matter what. Keep posting updates, enjoying the thread!

    @oldman We had some numpty this week walking around trying to open car doors, it was 10 O'clock at night...thieves are just getting lazy.

    Mate I've had my DT stolen before and it's not nice. To be honest, posting pictures up of my build up here is risky enough.

    It's a shame that that's the world we live in. Best thing about this build so far is that it's inside my bedroom. But eventually it'll need to go to the garage,

    Yeah you know how it is, it's nice to have a variety of projects swinging around the place. I'm still waiting to see what you do with that TDR.



  • Paranoid about bikes being stolen, had my last 3 bikes stolen all at a big loss due to the money spent on them. Just moved to a new house and need to build a garage on it so my 2003 dt project is in the garden behind a big fence. I have 2 ground anchors with a 14mm and 16mm thick hardened chains and the best squire locks.. Abus disc lock and a Datatool Alarm along with an Automatrics MTrack 24 hour monitered tracker as well as CCTV with infra red night vision that i can watch anywhere on my iphone. Think my DT is going to be safe, was wanting to keep it in the kitchen till get a garage sorted but the missus wouldn't let me so just went crazy on security.lol

    @2stroketerry Yeah that's a shame, DT's are prime targets unfortunately.

    The tdr is next winter now, will decide what to do with it then. Need to move the 89 out but still waiting for graphics (hopefully posted today) then endurance blue 88 will be a slow burner over the better weather months, want to be out riding more this year. Not looked to closely at the tdr yet and engine to build for it (all there bar crank), will be interesting though!

    @oldman I look forward to it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ



  • @calum hope you are wearing cotton gloves๐Ÿ˜‰
