1991/’94 Kawasaki DR-1S
Owner: Andrew Dean, Skipton, N. Yorks Owned for: 11 years So far: ex-race mono resurrected for the road What’s next? fine tuning
This started out as a Supermono I briefly raced in the mid-noughties – until its tuned DR600 motor blew. A few years later I decided to put it back on the road, but with an electric leg as the 600 was a real ankle breaker to start. I bought a tidy 18,000 mile 1994 DR650SE for £1000. That was 2007. Then in mid-2016 I decided I either needed to finish or break the thing. To get me motivated I decided to build a homage to my all-time favourite bike, the Laverda Monjuic Mk2 I owned in the early ’90s. I’m now bedding it in and sorting teething issues.
