Possible Project Street Tracker - A Quest For Retro Flash

I've been looking around at bikes and maybe taking on a new garage project. Right now a Yamaha Street Tracker tops the list. A 650 could be purchased a a low price and pieced together with plenty of cheap parts easy found on the internet. This thread is a bookmark for me.

650's are the shiznit ...plenty of stuff out there for them

a number of folks earn a living just doing the conversions...many trick parts available

always tempting to build one of those scrambler and w/ off-road being illegal in jersey, plenty of incentive

Ride before you buy. I couldn't ride more than a 100 miles without many body parts being vibrated to sleep. I totaled a 650 and used the insurance money to buy a CB900C.

RDs are a good platform for that style of bike also - parts are also out there and realitivly cheap - Ive got an old R5 350 Id like to think I could do something like that to, but, too many other projects to complete first - Good luck !
