Gsxr 600 custom build to what sells better? Opinions and thoughts on plans.

So I got a 06 gsxr 600 i made into a street fighter with custom tail and front end in the making.right now it's setup with a pro stunt sprocket and low profile cage. I wanted to make it a dual sport bike by putting some knobby tires on it and going back to stock sprocket but I don't know what will sell better gsxr dual sport custom or stunt gsxr? The bottom 3 pictures are the tires I want to put on it if I go with dual sport look the orange bike is the front end I'm shooting for.

That's a good question. DS build would be sick but I think a stunt build would sell easier. For starters though, that tail has to go, but I think that's already been covered in your older thread, lol.

I agree with 40, I don't think the street fighter style ever caught on here. People that have similar taste, have claimed the 'chopper' name and ran with it. I think it looks cool, but I would never do it to my own bike.

Yeah if I do the dual sport look I might not wana split ways with it it's gona look too nice. As for the tail pics do no justice it looks bad in person.but yeah if u where to stunt it eventually tail would b ruined.thanks for advice though I'm pushing more to dual sport tires n if I don't sell it'll b good toy to bring along to the off road parks and watch the ppl in amazement when they see a sports bike in the trails.lol

out of the two choices you have selected, i think OEM Stock would sell 'best.' hopefully you're keeping any parts you make changes to and can revert back to stock when you go to sell the bike, then sell whatever accessories you have on a gsxr forum and try to recoup some cost for your mods.

Aiming for your future seller when planning to mod your bike is a tough strategy...since you are the one who likes the mods yet you cannot sell the bike to yourself. Not saying you're the only one who likes the mods, just makes selling that much harder/longer if you have to wait for that one buyer who likes exactly the same things you do.
