Dirt Bike to Vintage Style Tracker Conversion

11681 ratings | 646849 views
I love the look of vintage style motorcycles, but I don't have the $$ to buy one. In this video, I'll show you how I took a basic dirt bike and converted it into a sleek off-road tracker. This can be done by anyone with a little metal working skill and a vision of what they want. Bike - $280 Tank- $100 Seat - $180 Raw Steel - $50 Paint/Bondo - $80 Electrics & Accessories - $200 Total Build Cost $890 Music by: Fu Manchu Follow Me On Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brandonpetrykowski/

Awesome job, man! Congrats! Video tip: lower the music a bit so we can hear you better! If mics are possible, that's appreciated too.

Hey man I really love your work. It inspired me to make my old moped run again. Can you tell me more details about how you did all the electrics? I want to do something simiilar but i don't know how. Hope you answer

I can't stand a bike without a rear or front deflection fender. Haven't you ever been through mud? I made a custom front deflection fender for my buddies Suzuki 500 street bike. This is what his words were exactly, "no more do I have water throwing off my front tire and ending up in my face, which is something the stock fender wasn't good at. However, this fender is hideous looking...
Brandon Petrykowski (1 month ago)
Robert B. Bro I totally get you, however here in the desert we raaarely get rain/mud.... only thing we get is dust and that hits you with or without a fender 😂 Solution: go faster🤘

If the engine was black too than it would look like it was built that way from factory. This makes me wanna get a dirt bike just to make it into a cafe racer style bike, i love the style that they are.
Brandon Petrykowski (2 months ago)
Austin's Problem's I’ll definitely have to consider that, I’m not sure if engine enamel paint will hold up to sand blasting off road but I’ll look into it 👍

It seems pretty risky welding with the engine and carb still on there.

J R's Place (4 months ago)
That really looks sharp. I'd only add two things: Preston Petty fenders. The fenderless look works for cafe racers, but if you don't want dirt and mud burying the bike and you, gotta have fenders. A dirt bike looks strange with out dirt filters.
Justin Woods (4 months ago)
Wow baja dirt bike and I got a couple of the mini bikes from baja
leyrbag Mannot (4 months ago)
I have a 1985 klr 600, damn I want to change it into a scrambler too now. But it's already a vintage trail... But the look of it worth the modifications. I will think about it

Wow. This is such an amazing transformation. Wish I had the means to do it myself. Do people in the modding business do these kind of things?? Also can it be registered to use publicly?

You turned a modern dirt bike into a vintage scrambler.......😵 you may as well shave a monkey & teach him how to lock you in a cage......😂 you literally undid years of evolution. Literally!

BRUH where do you get a bike on Craigslist for 200, I’ve been looking for so long for a dirt bike to fix up but I can’t find anything under 800
younghex (5 months ago)
I don't know how to weld. But the goal is to do this. But how much does all this cost? Approximately

Interesting film, a good build from a cheap bike to something looking like you can have fun. But why that terrible, and silly, ‘music’ all the way through? It spoilt the whole thing. I wanted to hear you working, and then hear the exhaust note when you rode it. I shut off the video early because my ears had been punished enough. Les

Darth Biker (6 months ago)
Great build. Building a dirt bike into a scrambler has always been my wet dream. A city bike that you can actually bash around the offroad countryside. That grunt it makes is how a real bike horn should sound like lol. Did you make any performance upgrades? Aside from the pipe? Also,sorry for dicking it but according to India, Bajaj is pronounced "badj-adge." 😁 One of our local motovloggers (Zach Lucero/Makina) actually pulled an Indian guy into his show just to clarify that.
Scotty Douglass (6 months ago)
Start with a real dirtbike. Note some Chinese crap. Then finish it. No fenders, not street legal, not fast. That is just practice, maybe. Half assed, defiantly.
Brandon Petrykowski (6 months ago)
Scotty Douglass Yur just jealous 😉
Geoffrey Hughes (6 months ago)
Fantastic job. Mate respect and don't cost a fortune that's what it's all about

Instead of buying all that equipment I could buy a dirt bike strip it down flex tape that shit and it can be anything you dream of it to be
Jip Jox (6 months ago)
very nice but you should have done it with a bigger cc motor than 125 especially when its a 4stroke not that much power but really cool build anyways!
