How about a Dirt bike turned Street bike? This one is currently in the works to be finished sometime in the next few months. I am in the middle of shaping the seat/plastics/rear fender section. I took a Honda 650 R seat and mated it to a Honda 450X sub frame after fabbing CBR 600 parts including shock and complete front clip. Rear sets and a tucked under pipe mated to twin Yoshimura Tri-oval Carbon fiber cans. Euro electric start should make this fun and easy to ride. pics in a few months.


..or take a great old classic and turn it into something modern? I just bought this at the Las Vegas antique auction. could be a post modern bobber with disc brakes and cool graphics. I'm still hip on the twin tracker or possibly something with a BMW R65/75 loaded into a custom frame with 50mm Marzocchi forks and a 2 into 1 pipe. 320 mm front brakes and clip on bars. Still up in the air. I will be completing two projects within the next few weeks and will make a final decision based on feedback... anybody capable of taking sketches and turning them into CAD? I'm a sketch and build guy, not a real engineer type of designer. I will need some help if anyone interested.
