As good a place as any, so here goes... I recently aquired an sr500 minus the frame, forks, wheels, and seat. The OD says just shy of 11k. Motor seems pretty decent. Was thinkin of a bobber build like they have on www.bratstyle.com. Whaddya think? what would be a proper frame stup for that motor? I thought about an e-bay xt, tt, or sr frame and then tweak it to my liking. I also hear that a Bonniville frame is a close match. I can get the wheels off the old bike (dude was holding onto them, but will likely part with em). I have to do this on the cheep, or the wife will be pissed for a long time (I already have 2 bikes, but like crack head, i am jonesin for another hit).
