SV650S?

Alright here's the question. Would this bike make an all around decent track bike? And if so where is a good place to find body work? Or any suggestions on what to do to the bike to make it a possible decent competitor? Or even better yet just get out on the track ASAP? It's just an idea right now but just trying to get some input from ya'll. Alright let me know thanks

There are bunches of SVs for sale all the time. They seem to be pretty popular, not only for the Twin races. Keep your ears and eyes open.

Do the suspension first, add brake lines and decent pads, good tires, frame sliders, maybe some rearsets and go.

If you want to race it, add some bodywork and safety wire and you're set.

Need more power? Depending on what clas you want to run, the sky's the limit.
I've built a few championship winning SV's, so if you'd like some more detailed advice, give me a shout tomorrow at the shop.
