Just recently got an 87 hurricane. I'm looking for ideas as far as syling goes. anyone have any tricked out, i cant find any pics. When this bike was designed they tried to save money and put everything into performance and cover it up with bodywork so it might be rough to figure out. What do you guys think?​

I got a buddy that has a CBR F2 that did a direct bolt on single sided swingarm from a VFR. Ill find out what year and model it was.. The F2 and your bike shouldnt be that far off.

Id take off that upper and front end, swap it out with a 600rr front suspention, wheel and brakes. Either get an upper tripple with risers or drill threw the upper tripple and bolt some risers up and throw some MX bars on there.

Since the sub frame is basically made of straight round rod you could probably fab up a sub frame a little different then either mount just a seat, or a seat and your choice of tail section.. Somethin that kinda follows the body lines on your bike, nothin too sharp. I found a Buell Lightening tail section that actually looked pretty good. Nice round curves and wasnt too big.

Get some matching seats or drivers seat and solor cover for the tail section you get, weld on some mounts n brackets and you'll be golden
