Okay I'll bite... here's my Ninja 500 Post Apocalypse Adventure Bike. This is a project from a few years back, but I still own it and it hasn't yet appeared in FotM... so fair game. This is probably the best photo for voting...

[IMG]20171008_182128 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

The back story is that this was built for the 2017 Dirtbag Challenege. Per DBC rules it was built for under $2000 and within a 2 month build window. I then had to complete a 3-day, 385+ mile ride. Despite a minor ignition issue, I successfully completed the ride. It won the DBC award of "Cleverest Bike".

The concept was to use an unfinished AK-1 road racing frame that had been abandoned for 17 years and turn it into an off-road adventure bike. The original AK-1 frames had a very expensive CNC machined aluminum mid-frame. To keep cost within budget I substituted the CNC portion with a mid-frame fabricated from laser cut sheet steel. A custom rear sub-frame was also fabricated specific to this build, as were many other parts.

Here's a build summary:

Engine: Kawasaki 500 Ninja.
Exhaust: custom 2:1:2 using Muzzy head pipe, Dan Moto cans, custom center section
Main Frame: AK-1 (roadrace) modified for off-road, +3 degrees rake.
Mid Frame: CNC aluminum portion replaced with sheet steel fabrication.
Rear Sub-frame: custom built for this bike.
Forks: Suzuki DRZ 400
Wheels: Suzuki DRZ 400
Shocks: Yamaha / Ohlins from SRX snowmobile
Tank: Yamaha R6
Seat: Yamaha R6
Headlights: Yamaha FZ600
Front fender: Yamaha YZ250 w/custom mount
Rear fender: custom built
Control cables: (extra long) Motion Pro
Foot controls: Suzuki GSXR
