Building a low seat dual purpose bike

Hi all,

My wife and I are both riders. She would really like to get a dual purpose bike but, as you all know, the seat height is usually 33 in minimum. My wife is only 5 feet tall and she can only flat foot very small cruisers (Honda Rebel, Suzuki Savage).

Has any one taken an off-road bike and made it street legal by adding headlamp and turn signal? I am asking the technical side now. The legal side depends, I guess, on the jurisdiction. I am thinking that a 3/4 size recreational off-road bike would be great for her. I could then get the new Honda 250 dual purpose for myself and we could go riding together.

This begs the question: why none of the manufacturers cater to the short inseam riders for that type of recreational bike?
