So I got this gs250 and I am going to start tearing into it tomorrow and im still not sure what I want to do with the front and rear end. Bike is going to be cafe fighter with a single round headlight and cafe tail. Help me with some ideas...

hahaha dammit guys, I am already in the middle of turboing my 954. Thats gunna be my fun lil 200rwhp turbo bike. I want this to just be a lil cafe fighter that will get 50mpg and I can just hop on and tool around town or run errands.

dammit guys, I am so torn on what to do with this thing. Itd cost me about $100 to get it running and what not, then prolly a couple hundred in paint and seals/gaskets and id have a nice little $350 cafe or so. But thats just not my style. I wonder how this chassis would handle with a cr500 or kx500 lump in it?

Do a nice resto-mod on it. Bring it to the 21st century, but keep the cool vintage lines. These older bikes Are great for this.

My opinion, anyways.

Yah thats what im thinking. Its cost effective as well. I got a good used cylinder and matching set of pistons on ebay tonight for $35 because it was miss spelled and wasnt coming up in searches. So I will have $135 into it so far and I can have it running. I think for around $250 I can make a nice little resto mod cafe out of it sense I already have a tail im building and have plenty of stuff laying around to build my own exhaust. So all I really need is a battery, a front brake rezi, a new twist throttle and maybe some cafe bars which I may build myself also.
