Hello all, I am looking a little direction on wich way I would like to go with this bike I picked up. As it sits the the crank os shot along with both pistons, the guy I got it from said he got it from someone that took a hammer to the pistons to get them un stuck, I am at the point I have it completly broke down motor and all. I like the look of the frame with the fenders and lights it has on now. I had a thought to buy a bigger motor and stick it in there and go for a bobber look. but then I am lost on where to find the specs of what the frame could handle and just how much work that would actually be. I think pieceing the motor I have now would be more then its worth. should I just start to part it out and put a down payment on a new bike? Any and ALL advice on this would be great, thanks in advance

you may be better off finding an unseized motor and mixing and matching to come up with a whole engine. I had a similar problem with a 72 CB500 i have and just picked up a few engines and now i have enough good parts for one whole. It is annoying, but i have more time than money. haha.
