Is it possible to have the default Wordpress signup page AND the BuddyPress signup page active at the same time, on the same website?

I'm building a community where I need 2 completely different types of members to sign up but I need them on the same website.

I want Member Group A to be subscribers to the website (where I can limit them access to certain pages later on or assign them a custom role. Even view Member Group 2's profiles). They themselves won't have profiles, images or anything. Just a basic signup that will allow them to see certain parts of the site.

I want Member Group B to be able to join the BuddyPress community and interact with each other. They will have access to all the BP features like messaging, profiles, own blog etc.

So far I've found that once BuddyPress is installed all the signup pages are buddypress ones, even the wp-signup.php link.

Any feedback on how to accomplish this would be much appreciated!
