Not a lot to work with there. Your $150 project will likely end up as a $4150.00 project given all the parts it needs. Maybe a later model Frontera engine will work with those motor mounts. Just remember that Buls at their best have poor brakes. I have seen comstar wheels on the front of one so know it will take one. Of course this means tig welding a mount on that fork slider. Those Betor forks are rough and the shocks....Well save the spring. This is a very light frame though with proper footpeg locations as it is the scrambler version. I would probably try some way to put an entire Japanese set of forks, brakes and wheel on it but this will likely mean some steering head bearing mods. Look at a Bultaco Astro for inspiration. A tough build for a first one. But there is so little there that you can what you want for sure.
