tough decision

i really like the look of the streetfighter style, and i really want to get clip-on bars but i'm having a really hard time making up my mind on doing a streetfighter conversion. the only reason is that my bike has mint condition plastics in my favorite color scheme. i know deep down i would have a lot more fun riding the bike if i modified it, and i really want a project to work on, but i can't help but love the sleek look now.

heres a picture of my bike now (its an '05 250)



i'd like to hear your opinions

Solution: buy another moto as streetfighter..

Used SV650 can likely be found under $2500.. once the weather gets warm, it will be harder.. I always shop for used motos in Nov. Dec.

Yeah i cant afford to get another bike :/ im planning on going more for a cafe racer look then streetfighter really but my main reason for the whole thing is that i dont really like the stock seating position and i would like something more aggressive.

im with davis....I dont particularly like the streetfighter look, I like the "muscle" look of the ninja with plastics (I have an 08 black ninja)
I only like the Suzuki SV without plastics...For whatever reason, IMO A sports bike shoudl have that "muscle" look that the plastics give it (hope that makes sense to ya lol)

see, i think the bike looks more muscular when you can see all the components with the plastics off, and more sleek and "fast" with the plastics on.
