Hey,

I think that a good bit of research may be needed. If you look in the Z-cars section on this site, you'll see a lot of motorbike engines. There's probably no real reason you couldn't go for the Ducati motor, but there are rear frames that are probably more readily available for Hayabusa and R1 engine conversions.

Deffo worth a look around that Z-cars section though.

As for cost, it's going to totally depend on how much you are doing yourself/with friends, or how much you'd have to pay for. I'd say a minimum of £5-6k, a maximum of, well, over £30k if you want to go mental with it and buy the best of everything that's out there.
