just my opinion only, why don't you trade it in on something bigger and better, because by the time you finish doing all these mods you will be no better of and have a bigger hole in your pocket, like I said once before buy something reliable and do cosmetics bit at a time as you can afford it. but every one to there own. good luck.

What size engine is the Spyder? If it's only built for a 500cc, then putting a CB900 or whatever, may push the boundaries of the frame and suspension.
These days, everything is built to a price. So, to save $$$$'s, thinner walled tube is used on smaller bikes, smaller suspension components, etc etc....

Just a thought. Swap meets, ebay, gumtree, Just Bikes magazine are your new best friends. :D :D :D
