sumo ideas?

Hey, been really kicking around the idea of a cheap motard to fuck around with this year.

Im looking for something cheap (probably old) to get started with. My main thing im looking for is a 200cc or bigger and something i can spoon street tires on. Saw an old XL600 on craigslist and was wondering if anyone has done the work to make an older bike take modern tires? Looking to stay around $1500 all said and done but realize i might have to come out of my pocket some more.

Any one have suggestions on what to look for?

Thanks guys!

I have a clapped out old XT600 that I might sell cheap-ish. It has new street tires on it already. Needs a rear shock, carbs need to be gone through, and leaks oil. Its street legal and has a title.

I only own one POS and I am trying to unload it on you. I would like to get $800 for it. It is a total roach, not worth what I'm asking for it and you probably should not buy it . Seriously, if you can get an XR650 or DRZ you would be better off.

Why Craig?

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"
