I have never seen a DR Big without the beak that was so well fitted to the stock tank. Really don't like the beakless look :tdown: though that is solely personal taste.

Reminds me of a tenere :crazy:
Kinda looks like it was made to fit.... wonder was it a one off?

Made by Hepco & Becker back in the day and sold in Germany.
They also did a SR43 version with twin headlights, and I have one in my emporium if anyone is interested.
I quite like the look personally, though others will disagree.

I actually like it as well. Its a bit squared off which reminds me of one of those kids robots from the 60's-70's. Nice bike.

Mine is up in the attic and I`m not going to get covered in cobwebs just to take a photo.
My memory clearly isn`t what it was. It was made by Five Stars not Hepco and retailed for 199 euros about 25 years ago.
Here`s a few pics I found

Bit too "street" looking for me. Similar to the DR 650 RS.

Very similar to the 650 RS but I quite like it. I wish I knew what headlight it used.

.............I wish I knew what headlight it used...........

Bob, it looks like an early Yamaha Fazer 600 to me.
My Guzzi Quota has a projector + spotlight headlamp which is rubbish and a replacement upgrade is the Yam Fazer...looks very similar.
