Very interesting method of construction as long as
that carbon fiber epoxy is not affected by ethanol gas.

Awesome bike. Makes up for my initial disappointment - I thought it was going to be a "nipple" thread.

Oakie, your bike is fuckin' awesome!!

Erik Buell is a genius. Many people aren't aware that a Buell XB12R will outrun EVERYTHING on the highway up until about 120 mph, when the litre bikes take over. With 103 hp and 85 ft lbs of torque in a 375 lb bike, NOTHING accelerates like an XB12R. No Hayabusa, litre bike or Big Twin can keep up.

And your bike looks lighter with most of the frame stripped away. I hope it's strong enough to handle that torque monster of a motor.

Thank U Merlin Hawaii, if Erik Buell would have built bikes for people like me (6foot3inchesand notsobloodyagileoldbastards) I'd probably wouldn't have built my bike . . I'd have bought a stock XB12R, I REALLY like the engine. Not just because how it runs but the way it looks and the stuff Erik put on it (sidestand- and exhaustbracket, swingarmmount that makes the engine part of the frame etc.)

Yep, the short fat tubing I used for "frame" is more than enough to handle the torque the XB engine can develop :-) . . . Weight? My build weighs in at 200 kg (~440 lb?) filled with fuel & otherliquids.

Yes, the XB12rs are tiny bikes.

Are there many Buells in Sweden?

2010, the last year of the HD Buells, most of the bikes went to Europe, so I guess they have a pretty big following over there

Your bikes gonna haul ass, man!

There are not that many around here in Sweden, sorry to say. There might be more down thu the southern parts of Europe? They are really cool bikes . . and nice to have as a donor-bike when you build something of you own. All good thing must come to an end, but I think it was a real bummer they stopped making them.
