Cafe Conversions :: What Would You Convert?

Here at The Bullitt we’ve posted a handful of dirtbikes that have been converted into cafe racers or trackers.  Take Drake McElroy’sCR250 cafeNigel Petrie’s cafe’d KTM and a RSD KTM 530 cafe and another clean RSD KTM 525

These are all beautifully done and look like a total blast.  There’s no doubt plenty of you out there have old dirtbikes…potentially collecting dust in the garage or shed.  Well, would you or have you done something similar?  Let us know.  What was it?  How difficult was it?  The XR600 pictured above was posted by ZeCraignos Monster Cycles blog.  Bullitt approved!

    I actually built that Xr600 above. The before & after pic. I have done a few more different bikes since then. If you would like to see.
