I'm hoping somebody can help me decide if it's feasible to convert a bonneville to a scrambler, since I've got a line on a cheap one(under $4k), or if I'd be money ahead to just get a scrambler?

Does a scrambler have differnt shocks and forks? I've never ridden one, just the bonnie, and I would want stiffer springs and longer travel and real knobbies

Also, and most improtantly (to my drug addled mind at the moment) does somebody make a left hand replacement exhaust system?

and what about that solo seat with the rack? I've heard they're not that strong? Is there some other solo and aftermarket rack available?

If my questioning seems incoherant, I jst had surgury and still doped up, but I've been thinking of this project for a few months now, and I have time to shop for parts and plan now.

thanks
