Hey Forum.

Iv been looking at getting a third bike for a while now and fancy a supermoto. I got a brief ride of a CCM R30 and by the time i got off the bike i couldnt speak for pishing myself laughing.

Literally i had tears in my eyes, so suffice to say i like them.

My problem is...........

They are Bloody extortionate, i mean £2,000 for a 5 year old KTM Duke in "OK" condition, I got a minted 600 Hornet for less than that with just 12000 miles on the clocks and over £1,000 worth of trick parts attached.

So i guess what im saying is what is the cheapest way to get a descent supermoto.

Ideally i'd like to spend no more than £2,000, and come away with a pretty good bike, i.e KTM, Husky, or an older japanese 2-stroke such as a CR-500.

Am i dreaming ?

Buy a cheap dirtbike and modify hubs for street wheels to fit. May have to fit a swingarm but only if you want some ridiculously large (for a SM) wheel.

The HARD part is getting it titled, so make sure you check to see what you have to do to get an off-road vehicle titled for the street. It might be impossible in Scotland or all of the UK so don't put any money down before you do that.

Easiest option is to buy a cheap dual-sport, a dirtbike that came stock with a street title. They're usually cheaper than supermotos by quite a bit. Then you just need to mount street wheels and tires.. buy a hub from the supermoto version or make a hub from another bike work.
