Now that I have the W650 and the SR500, I'm thinking of doing something different with the SR as it's currently too similar to the W in my opinion. I might use this thread to throw out some different ideas as I muse over time. Today I did this It doesn't steer too badly, actually, and its pretty comfortable. But importantly, it's a lot of fun to ride. Such a bike could end up with a spoked 21" or 23" front wheel from a dirt bike, and a single seat integrated with a tall sissy bar against which I'd permanently lean, as per deadman (although I have a slightly different design in mind to that one pictured). And, in time, an up-swept exhaust. I'd leave the frame alone. A lot of people hate choppers, which makes this even more attractive! But I like the simple and cheap, light-weight spindly British "soft choppers" of the counter-cultural 1960s, which had quite a different vibe to the over-the-toppers and then the later "I'm a bad boy" stuff. Which makes the SR the perfect candidate. Thoughts? Then again, I did dig the bike as 'Bush cruiser'.
