1991/’94 Kawasaki DR-1S

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - In Your Shed -

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.
