Someone did that already... Its called a Sherco. The frame geometry matches a late model RM250 and the construction is KTM style tubing. They're really nice bikes if you get the opportunity to check them out.

I've always wanted a fullsize 80/100 like the ones Roeseler and others raced at the ISDE's in the 80-90s and I was immediately infatuated with them as a young teenager when I attended the 92/93 ISDE's in Australia and Holland and was saddened when they ... more »
