DMC CR85/100 Street Legal
 

By Jerry Matta

Even though I don't ride this bike too much, this my favorite bike. Mainly because of its uniqueness of being only one of a few street legal conversions in California.  I also went way out of my way to make this street safe with full size mirrors that don't move when you ride and you can actually see the cars behind you. Plus it has real front brakes with a DRZ400 supermoto master cylinder, steel braided line, and a twin piston caliper. The Trail Tech computer has all kinds of info even including air temperature.  The 120 scoots pretty good, but eventually I want to put in a Trail Bikes 132cc kit.  Other things I would like to add is a rack that can hold a collapsible fishing pole and a small pack.

Started off with a basic DMC 120 Conversion with a black powder coated frame.

I tried little cheapo mirrors, but when I realized you actually need to see the traffic behind you, I got these.  However, I had to get the perches or them as well.

CRF450 Twin Piston Caliper and speedo mount.  You can see there's not much room for the speedo cable.

This was my favorite bike and had so many trick little things. But, I hated riding on the street.  It was just too scary.

When Miller built this frame, he put in a kickstand mount.  It's uses a KX100 stand.  I can't remember the year.

This is just awesome.  Mileage, RPM's, speed, tons of stuff, this does it all.  This trick was getting the magnet and everything to work on the disc and caliper.  Using a twin piston caliper made things a little difficult.

CRF100 Key mount.  Homemade bracket came out pretty good.
