The TAFFYMOTO built "Black Pearl" CRF450R Supermoto.

I don’t post a lot of Supermoto’s on here. That’s not a prejudice on my par cause I absolutely love them and am in the process of converting my DR650 over. But this bike is so freaking nice that I can’t pass it by. It fairly legendary in the SM world. It’s know as the “Black Pearl”. If you’re interested in more about the bike there’s a good thread on it over on  This is an insanely nice build.
