My wife and I started to kit out 2 DRZ400SM's to ride from London to Sydney a few years ago, but plans have changed and we are taking a Landcruiser over now. We still have the DRZ's that are for sale now. We chose DRZ's as they are reasonably light, and would be easier to handle off-road than some of the heavier alternatives.
The first one:
Taxed and tested until July 2013
Rental fatbars with protector
Clarke tank 3.9 gallon
Acerbis hand guards
Goodridge braided hoses
CRD frame and sump guards
Unabiker radiator guards
Tail tidy & LED rear light
Manual can chain tensioner
FCR39 flatslide carb
E model cams
Athena 434cc big bore kit
FMF power bomb header and FMF can
EGR removed & blanked off
K&N air filter
Setup on dyno by Steve Jordan
This one got the engine work because I'm a little heavier than my other half (its all muscle...).
The second one is very similar but has the stock carb and no engine work. This one has had a recent complete engine rebuild (by Steve Jordan). We have a cut down (lowered) spare seat for this one.
Taxed & tested until August 2013
• Full Yoshi system
• Dynojet Stage 2
• Larger Clarke 3.9 gallon tank (c. 16L) - plus original
• K&N Fiter
• Renthal Gold bars & crash pad
• Zeta brake/clutch levers
• Tail tidy
• Braided brake hoses
• Manual cam chain tensioner
• Conti Force tyres - with plenty of life left
• Luggage rack
• Alpha Dot
• CRD Bash plate
• Acerbis Handguards
• Unabiker Radiator guards
• Engine case & frame protectors
They are both on supermoto wheels at the moment. I have one set of very good offroad wheels, and a another set that needs to be refurbed. I also have a lot of the original parts as well as an assortment of extras (including spare levers, clutch cable, etc).
I would like to get £4k for the whole lot. So if you and your partner are looking for a pair of bikes, give me a shout.
Tax and test ?
Are these E or S model ?
And an individual price for each one ?
And pictures would help as well please.
I added some more info to the original post. I would consider selling separately if someone made me an offer, but I would prefer to sell everything in one go though and think I have priced to reflect this.
Just to clarify, the motor work on the first bike was done by myself. The work was done to a very high standard as I had planned on riding the bike all the way to Australia and I wasn't planning on breaking down anywhere.
The first bike will also have a brand new Yuasa battery in (bought today), and the other one had a new Yuasa battery about 2 months ago.
Cooped up indoors in crap weather? Binge watch over 20 hours of inspiring, informative and entertaining stories and tips from 150 travellers! Check it out at the HU Store! Remember to order them both and use Coupon Code 'BoxSet+' on your order when you checkout.
