Parts-bin mini-twin

Too cold and icy for bikes and not enough snow for snowmobiles yet, so another what-if thread to kill the boredom.

Using existing bikes/parts suggest to manufacturers what they could and should build from completely off-the-shelf parts.

Bonus points if all the parts are from the same manufacturer

For example..

Honda: 500X motor in XR650R frame with 450X suspension

Yep!

But with off the shelf parts..

530 twin from Triumph would be great though.. I really like that 800 triple.
