This is the basic look. Hardtail flat tracker, Bates seat with P pad, Pirelli MT53's, nice clean front end, low bar with a nice bend, straight pipe. Alloy wheels with perhaps, a small juice brake on a spool up front. Rob something from a CR250 maybe. The minimal deviations from the above example would be paint, and maybe a little extra chrome here and there. Sort of a chopper flair on a flat tracker. Shave the fork mounts on the legs, chrome the steel fork covers, headlight bucket, and lower tree. Make some lower covers and chrome them as well. Polish the shit out of everything aluminum forward of the steering head. Then you'd have a clean front end that looks like...

If only there was a 350cc motor with a bad frame stored about 75 yards away from where my bike is stored. Hey, wait a minute... My Dad has had an older model 250 in pieces kicking around for ever. That's really what started me on these things. One day when I was in high school I drug a later model 350 home that was in rough shape. The frame was junk but we saved the front end and the motor. The Old Man built a racebike out of that for AHRMA roadracing.
