I want to build a big brother for the XR460/4, once it is finished, and like the idea of a 600cc 4 banger. Why? Well it has good power, reasonably good on fuel, should be able to get it light enough, carry enough gear, good on a long open road run.

Like a steel frame, so whats around? Aircooled / Water Cooled?

Suzuki 600 Bandit
Yamaha 600 Seca
Honda Hornet
Kawasaki Z650 (?)

Put some long travel suspension and longer swingarm and off you go!!!

Well sorta

Any thoughts

My new favourite thread.

My dream is to build a rallye style bike but use an old Truimph twin motor. Sort of a fusion of old skool and modern Safari/Dakar race bike/adventure bike.

I'd like the tanks to be custom built polished alloy and build a custom frame to suit. Lots of chrome and polished alloy and brass but with modern suspension and brakes. Styled something like a factory race bike if they had Dakar back in the fifties or sixties.
