I vote for stock.

To successfully pursue the objective of this project, i.e. to financially support the Forum, it makes far more business sense to build a stock bike from spares made available through members' contributions.

I also support the notion of something unique in the paint job to distinguish the project bike from others. Moreover, the idea of Eddie Lawson or Kenny Roberts supporting the effort through signatures/photos and other marketing initiatives is a great idea to stimulate awareness and interest (and profit...)

The notion of creating a modern or monster bike is romatically appealing, but unfortunately not too practical - especially from a resale viewpoint

Extended swing arm and front end to start with. Some have the front suspension completely removed.

Modded stock bike gets my vote. It seems to make the most sense from many perspectives.

I'm gonna run this poll until Gus gets back from Florida next week, so if you haven't put in your vote yet.... well, git 'er done! :lol:

Personally, I'm leaning toward a lightly-modded stocker myself as well :cool:

Gus, try not to think of the Sunshine state. :grin:

But it was 30 last nigh here in the sunny South. It probably just killed every new leaf that dared to bud out. And my palm trees died this year. Where did global warming go?
