It's not quite finished. I'm having some carb issues, but other than that it's done.

Sorry for not posting earlier, got busy with the finish up.











Started building this in a small engine repair shop I worked in last year. I got laid off in October so had to finish as time and cash allowed over the following 6 months or so in a spare room in my house.

Its a 97 Buell S1 engine from a wreck, a Paughco frame and pipes, wheels and front end off an 80 sportster, Elswick cycles oil tank, cheap ultima (I think) gel seat and the bars came from V-twin Mfg. I forget who made the controls, haha...


Funny, I had the carb issue, but I switched the idle jet out to a 48 from a 45. But the main jet is a 195 and thats stock.
That seemed really big to me, but who am I to argue with Eric Buell......
It seems to be running fine now, but I can't ride it far enough to really test it for fear of the law biting me in the arse.

5 more days until state inspection and barring a no go, I'll get tags then and run the hell out of it.
