i agree what a money pit, but if you have the time it would be purty schweet. have no clue about parts for that though...

Looks intriguing, but I think a RG500 motor would be a better idea.

I'm just saying... it would be a one-of-a-kind build that would be very schaweet..... if you tuned it right of course! :)

It would be much easier to fit than an RG500 engine. Needs conversion to carburators.

The fuel injection on those never worked properly, lots of seizures. Half the reason Bimota went bankrupt back when they made the v-due.

He may have saved a ton of $$$, but oh the fun it would've been! Maybe it's just me, but I love taking on challenging projects. I'm even getting a newer and better lathe within the next month to feed my appetite! :)

Slightly off topic... but I always had the idea in my head to design a set of cases to take 2 x CR250, RM250 of YZ250 cranks, rods, cylinders, pistons and carbs and a gearbox from some 600... now... with some joint effort from the forum here..... would be somehting like the Bimots but... better ?

I always had the idea too...!!
A case that will accept existing parts, like gearbox from a gixxer e.g. 4 cylinders etc...:devil:
