My question is if it is possible to do it to a bike that orginally did not have a starter.
The whole idea is for a half decent "retro" bike - harking back to the 70's
An electric boot will only add weight (starter motor + bigger battery) and unnecessary complication - not good
The Kwak W650 is a great retro machine - the W800 is not as good or so retro-accurate, as it now has fuel injection + no kickstarter ........ If you want an 'old skool' bike, then the whole point being... Less is More
These Sr400's are going to be for sale at £5100 in the UK ....... thats about $8,000
