'03 450 Hurricane Conversion - Pics

Why did I have to stumble into this thread? Now it makes me want to tear my bike down again, and clean it, re-powdercoat the frame, etc.

^^^ Without a doubt ...

Sharp looking bike 2k ... :censored:

man that thing is nice as hell with the white number plate and side pannels

Yellow is just a good color for a Dirt Bike. Looks champ bro!!!

Thanks everyone!

My local dealer has one of those Doug Henry bikes, and I want it bad...

More or less did the same on my '99 400 ( 420 )

Grey metal flake powder coat, black Clarke tank, but still running the

classic blue set-up.

This way when I'm ready I can go white / yellow as I choose in no time.

Looks real classy as is though, will post up some pics eventually,

apart right now.

I think it's a great way to have a new bike feel without spending the dough.

Plus you do all the maintenace in one shot as well.

And ditto on the frame cleaning, I did all the precautions + pressure washed the inside for about an hour HaHa!!

Cant you thread something into the frame hole so nothing gets into the oil reservoir?

I thought of the same thing, but according to the shop that did my frame, if you use a screw in plug the powdercoat will be too thick and basically fuse the plug to the frame when it gets baked. You could certainly do this during the sandblasting though and keep most of that out of there. When they did mine, they used some neoprene plugs wedged into the hole. After baking they pull right out (like a wine bottle cork).
