Questions on your Sportster chopper frame

I recently looked at your web site and saw your Sportster chopper frame. I have a chance to pick up a 1999 Buell with low miles or a Sportster (not sure what year, late 90's I do now though) with around 8000 miles.

What parts, if any, other than the engine, are/can be reused from the Sportster? How 'bout the Buell?

Thanks in advance!!

The power plant is the big part of course. You could use the wheels, trees, tank and some of the electronics. I'm sure however if you're looking to build a kustom your gonna start looking at wheels, trees, tanks, hand and forward controls. You would use even less from a buell. If we changed the aspects of the frame you may be able to use the trees and forks, but I'd have to check into the logistics.

If you look at the examples on the website the only sportster carry over is the motor. They are both frame up kustoms.

The plan behind the flashback frame was to give a platform to build a cheap chopper with classic lines. If you can pick up a wrecked buell/sporster for a couple grand and salvage the motor you are well on your way. Then you can pick and choose the wheels, wires and tires so to speak. You're only limited to your own imagination.

Peace

If you build a custom from a sportster, keep in mind that what you don't use, you can always sell on ebay. I was able to recoup well over a grand from the take off parts I sold.
