    Default 650 in a 250 frame?!?!

    I've been wanting a project for some time now and have yet to be able to find a decent 650 and if I do its always when I can't afford it. I'm in no hurry really but I happened to come across a bike in my town turns out it's a 250 that likely needs a rebuild. I plan to make a "bobber" basically hard tail bare bones fun to ride around bike so there's gonna be alot of cutting and welding anyway. My question is is it possible or feasible to try to put a 650 engine in this 250 frame. Or maybe even a 400. The guy wants 60 bucks for the bike I'd hate to turn it down thanks for any help

    I'm not sure exactly what year it is. For 50 bucks I'm thinking about just buying it then trying to figure it out over time

    First thing to learn is DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS ARE EVERYTHING and mere displacement is not useful information. The most profitable thing you can do is read forums (this one and any motorcycle related forum) so you gain real understanding of motorcycles before you start working on them. Then you will make informed choices.

    For 50 bucks you can buy it to tear down as a training aid. Post what it turns out to be and so you learn properly find a service manual to download and take it apart properly instead of just winging it. Either become professional early on or you'll suffer while wasting money.

    Save money while you learn and ensure you have enough capital to buy something you can save and make damn sure it has a clear title in your name before investing any money in a street bike.

    Thanks everyone for the advice and help. I've done more research. At least as much as I can without running the numbers on the bike. And I'm pretty sure now its not even an xs250 I think its an 80's SR250 guess I got to excited and didn't have much time to look it over. Its not close to what I'm after So I'm not going to mess with it. I appreciate the help and sorry I got ahead of myself and wasted everyone's time

    Man, some guys have all the luck.

    Nope I found a bike I don't like for 50 bucks. I don't think it will be worth messing with.
