  1. New to this forum. I want to build a track bike out of a 1980 SR 500. I don't want to race per se, at least until I can take some instruction and improve my skills, I just want to practice for a while. I want to build a classic, vintage, cafe racer style, one lunger, with the following mods: 10.5 to 1 pistons, ported head, 36 or 38mm Mikuni carb, after market tunable exhaust, oil cooler, cut down seat, clip on style bars, rear-sets, after market rear shocks, rear drum brake, spoked aluminum wheels front and rear and a stiffer front fork with drilled dual disc brakes and stainless braided lines. I think I've got everthing sourced except the front end. Would a FZR front end fit on a SR 500 frame? If so would XS 650 wheels fit the forks and the FZR brake discs, or could they be modified to fit? It's probably a long shot, but any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
