Lightbulb Should I turn my CBR600 F4 into a Streetfighter? Poll inside

Well, my F4 needs a head rebuild, and im really starting to think about turning it into a street fighter while its all stripped down anyways. I figure I can sell all the plastics and chrome wheels, which would fund most of the build. Ideally, I want to have a supersport(my R6), a cruiser(either yamaha raider or kawi mean streak), and a street fighter. If I turn this into a SF I could be 2/3 the way there...

I check out customfighter.com every now and then, and it seems like it wont be too expensive to turn the F4 into one. Could anyone with SF experience chime in?

Thanks,
-Ben

cool i would go with a tig welder if u can get one and can work one because u can weld alum stainless and cold rollede steel and many more wit one welder. given u have to change the set up each time but it is worth it.

I was thinking about it with mine as well while I am acquiring the rest of the fairing pieces and painting ect. That way i could ride it before I finish all of that. I rode it around my neighborhood with all the fairings off of it and it was kinda cool for cruising around.
