Man thats a hard question to answer since it took the better part of 5 months to do it, the powder coating alone was about $400.00 for everything I did, the polishing/anodizing was another $400.00, the brand new motor was $1400.00, the headwork and big bore parts (boring, plating, gaskets and piston kit) were $750.00, I already had the wheels but I bought a new 5" rear and re-did the hubs in blue as well as the rims, so lace and true with black spokes was about $150.00, the pipe was $360.00 (ebay score of the century), the 05 pastics, seat, subframe and brake master were about $500.00, graphics were $230.00
Sliders and bar ends were $90.00, brake caliper rebuild kits (so I could anodize them) were about $85.00, then all the various nuts, bolts, airbox parts, and such were at least another $200.00 ....
So that alone is $4565.00 in parts and material.

I did not *need* a new engine, but the deal was too good to pass up since it came with a brand new carb, and if you take into account the fact that I bought a frame, and swingarm and tons of other extras like the electronics, nuts bolts, axles, engine guards and crap off a member here in the classifieds for $290.00 I have everything but forks and a shock to put another complete bike together (my next project) which I will probably sell when its done for somewhere around $3 grand maybe.
Thats what I told my wife anyway, and if I stay true to that and sell the other bike even for $2500.00 when its done, that means that I got my super trick WR done up for $2000.00 which is unheard of in the supermoto community.
Yeah its a lot of money, but I guarantee there is not another one like it anywhere and that is what makes it *priceless* to me, I never went into this trying to add resale value to the machine, I did it because I love to make things my own, I like to do stuff I have never seen anyone else do.
I really do appreciate all the compliments you guys, I am glad you think it's cool, thank you very very much.... :thumbsup:

where did you get your number plate backgrounds and numbers?

I'm converting my WR450F into a street motard. Everythings cool except my fromt axel is about 5mm short for the Ohlins supermotard forks. Looking for a easy fix. I'm way out in Alaska with no machine shops near by. Appreciate any help.
Lost in the frozen North.

Can we see pics of YOUR bike please?
Just curious what makes your boat float, it would be nice to have a comparison.
Thanks for your opinion tho, I was certain it would not be appealing to everyone on the board.
So to those that like it and have complimented it...
THANK YOU! :thumbsup:

But why do you need bark busters on a super motard?

To save your pinky when you go down!
