Want to SuperMoto My 1986 XT600s

Hi to all the XTer's out there.Does anyone know precisely what type of street tires are best for this mod.Also what are my options for rims other than the OEM rims that are on the bike already. Plus I would like to get new foot pegs as well.Like the mods that XTgirl did with hers,but I want a different look than just the dirtbike/enduro.Any information and websites that I can order what I'm looking for would be very much appreciated.:h elpsmilie:

Have you visited this site? They may have more info on where to get parts and what fits. You'll probably have to look for stuff for the WR's for what may fit the XT, otherwise for like wheel hubs you'll need to measure your shaft diameters and hub widths and ask or go look what other street bike has those same dimensions. I've wanted to build myself a supertard but don't want to do it to the XT, maybe a XR650l or WR modded for more go juice. Like Husqvarna's SM 510
