Impressive photoshopped pics there CruisingRam. LOL, j/k. Good work!
This is ancient knowledge, however not the subject of this thread, since as said before, changing tyres is hardly a conversion.
All that in good faith.
Lemme make sure that I understand the new rules.
Take a dualsport, change the rubber and put it on pavement, call it a Supermoto and all the cool kids will send you Christmas cards, but if....
Uhm, nope, a Supermoto should at least have 17' rims, wider triple trees, street tires, lower and stiffer suspension, etc...
I do respect all of you riding inappropriate tools for the job (that's adventure!), but I agree, just changing tires and/or riding your street bike in the woods does not constitute a conversion.
I personally would like to see more of something like the examples below (NOTE** they are all 205's):
...and my personal favorite:
I wanna see them all. Never met a bike I couldn't learn something from.
Like the the one pictured above that is Marco Moto's favorite? The flex-line to the rear caliper is scary looking... :eek1
Gotta throw out some pics of Jason Adams' 72' R60/5 that he built and did Baja Rally de Moto. (build thread over in Airheads)
Thanks Scotty, for letting me steal the photos [/QUOTE]
Yeah, that thing is all kinds of scary!
That guy above was profiled in ADV Moto Magazine.
That would be closer to the thread title than "I got new tyres"
I have looked all over ,beasts,oz, some assembly and can find no mention of 1st gen conversion,please advise.
Here is one that took more than just new tires. This bike was a basket case. Original wheels were shot, and replacements cost the same as just buying a new bike.
I extended the forks and swingarm, plus 50% bigger wheels with knobbies, new seat, and new paint.
Before(stock picture, paint was thrashed also):
Duck in the Woods.
Just tires but still cool.You know this is what Conti was thinking of when they came up with the 180 size TKC !!!.

Wow I did the same project!
I converted my 1975 CB750 into this: (I loved that old bike but my back couldn't take it anymore)
It was great but still not really an adventure bike.
So I converted it into this by means of a straight across trade: (didn't like the goldwing)
I know that seems a little backwards, but I had a line on another one that I could trade for. I was able to "convert" the Goldwing into this: (best and most affordable conversion strategy! But I have total respect for the cool conversions in this thread. I admire the workmanship and creativity. If my shop was better equipped I'd be doing it to. Life time subscriber.
