I built a set of handlebars from an old set that I had put up. I'm going to remove the chrome and paint them satin black.

I started on the pipes today. I've always wanted a 2to1 and this was pretty easy to make, not perfect but not bad for my first pipes. They are 1 3/4" at the head, step up to 1 7/8" and the collector is 3" I have about $90.00 total in them, that includes the bends, flanges, flange nuts and gaskets. I'm going to try to get the front pipe tighter to the engine and I may wrap them depending on how my welds finish out.

Tore everything back down and started the final assembly.

Here's the frame in black bedliner and the motor in satin black.


Another shot, it shows the texture in the frames finish better the filter relocater is just loose on here, it mounts straight with the brackets shape

I got the wiring ran, oil lines ready, just about got the motor ready to bust off. Got a carb, intake, just need to get some intake flanges and it would be good to go. Was planning on firing it up this weekend but some pole smoker got a hold of my old ladys debit card number online and made a bunch of purchases on our dime. Which put us in the hole a little, so needless to say this thing's on hold for a little while until we get this bullshit worked out. Damnit....

The bedliner texture/paint is solid. I have wanted ot do that for years. Looks good in light and you won't ever have to worry about scratching it. Bike looks good man.

Here's a video that I'm pretty excited about.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZJOOoNR_1M

Despite all the different circumstances I got this bad boy fire up!! The timing for the XB motor was a bit of a pain. You have to re-index the Harley ignition rotor to work with the Buell XB motor because the xb camming is different. I used an Ultima (Dynatec) Ignition module which seems to work pretty good and has some nice features.

I also need to rebuild the carb it has a leak coming from somewhere, when I first started to bust it off I couldn't get the carb to take any gas. Took it apart and the needle/seat was stuck. So I imagine the leaking I have now is from the needle/seat not sealing properly when the bowls full. It's a used carb so it's expected. I've got a carb mounting plate on the way. I can't decide if I want the heads to vent from the stock location (valve covers) or convert them to standard Harley type.

I painted the pipes with VHT hi temp paint but some of it flaked off because I sprayed too much on at one time without curing. Live and learn, I'll fix it and the pipes will be wrapped anyway. I couldn't wait any longer to hear it run and it turns out the motors a little thumper!

Well with the help of a buddy I got this thing on the ground. It's heavier than what I expected. I added a lift to my Christmas list... Almost there, just need cables, brake lines and then I can ride it. I'll probably wait to paint/body the tins till it warms back up.
