any cheap way of making a SM conversion $$$

I was wandering if there is any rims from other bikes that coud be adapted to a 95 fe501e inverted forks. Second hand japanise parts are cheap and easy to find.
I want to keep my off road rims to have them with dual purpose tires (lovely metz).
also I'm looking for a big gas tank, the bigest you can find. yes I like endurance trips I have done it with other bikes bmw and honda xr/ spain and moroco and want to check waht husaberg is up to.

Re: any cheap way of making a SM conversion $$$

what fits a husey fits a ktm so look to orange for inspiration if needs be.

really cheap SM starts at a 17" front rim and respoked. how cheap therefore is cheap?

spare wheels seem to be the way to go but remember that up to and including '02 the bikes had a small axle pin up front and then katoom and husey stuff became interchangable from '03 model on.

as for a big tank-stick a heat gun on it and blow it out with an air line. worth two litres.

Re: any cheap way of making a SM conversion $$$

also I found this on ebay:

Set of supermoto wheels, 17x4.25 rear, 17x3.5 front, KTM factory brand, made in Germany by Behr. Includes NEW, never been ridden Pirelli MT60RS tires. 320mm front brake disk. Here's how they are currently set-up,(although with spacer changes, they might be able to be used on other bikes as well, but I do not have any specific info on that). This set up can be used, unmodifed, on KTM 640 LC4's with the conventional fork

will it wouk my 95 husaberg I found taht the husabergs up to 96 front end is interchageable wiht ktm1990 to 94 and lc4 95?

See several threads from a while back about using cast road bike wheels off Jap bikes. Check my gallery (link below) for pix of mine.

Stick with deals on used KTM set ups.... 17" .....................501 makes a very good SM bike......like suggested on another thread look through the KTM hard parts get an Idea of which parts you need and then look for deals......
