Converted to what? a tank-less push bike?
Be good to see some stand up finished pics!
I like the rear turn indicators.

I converted my Vstrom to a BMW R1200GS about 3-1/2 weeks ago.

Put some knobs on it, Suzuki scrambler. I bet it can wheelie without that heavy fairing.

Yeah converted to what? something painted black? I have wondered how much of that crappy plastic I could do without. I would save it for when I sell it.

I got it. A CRUISER . The seat is at the upholstery shop having studs put in . The jacket is getting Roy Rogers fringe . The handlebars are getting 54 inch fringe . And the fairing is out having "San Francisco Treat " painted on it. Guaranteed to win the first parade it's in.
Welcome to the forum , brittle . and enjoy the roast.

The term I've seen in the past for builds like this is "thinstrom"

Since Fox went and spoiled the whole action going, here's some help if you hadn't google searched it before.
