[FONT="<font><font>Verdana</font></font>"]Thanks, Ladder106! Well, I want not to sell my original parts. I want have a "two-in-one bike" and cut or weld nothing. Want I my original Big? OK, I need one hour or two. But another days ride a original motorcycle, simple, different... My loved XR... I had seven years a Honda XR 600 for all time: go to work, little travels with my sons, funny Enduro, or "giving scares" at RR's in asphalt... :-D I remember I loved my XR, but... I needed more light, more autonomy, more engine, and my sons larger day to day... I needed another bike, and I wanted a Big when I was young: simple engine, simple frame... all simple. Perfect for me!! The spanish Merlin Dg11 500... really a very bad bike... Only I needn't the big tank... In four years I had only a long travel -2000kms/1200Miles- who I need fuel (460kms/285Miles without stops... ohhh my ass...). Too large tank for me... and too heavy!!! The Merlin fuel tank -Acerbis made- is 20 litres, but very light, like XR tank: good autonomy, good weight. The pretty XT 550... I like it!!! Of course, if I remove the Big tank, I need another front light, but I need light in dark... and I like the old and pretty Yamaha XT 550 (was not in sale in Spain). OK, why not a naked bike front light? Will have a classic Baja stile and good and white -and legal... here have problems with xenon kits- light. My big and the Merlin tank... have odds!!! And I'm in this position now. I have the Merlin tank, a seat, a rear rack and, more important, desire to do it. Probably I will start this month... I want start!!! All of this write -with my bad english- here, of course.[/FONT] I like too with the original fender... why not?
