I would prefer to see Buell build a motor for their sport chasis. They have made a name, now it is time to build 100% of the bike.

EB is clear concerning his passion for air-cooled simplicity. Enough so, Buell has invested much so the air-cooled engine will meet EPA standards. Read his words and he's quite negative about water-cooled and why it isn't for Buell or needed. Good marketing would have left the water-cooled negatives untouched/unmentioned, singing only air-cooled praises.

Leave custom building to the moron family in Orange County. How's 'bout putting a KTM motor in a Buell. I have to admit that the Buell line is a wee bit better looking than the folded paper designs of Ktoom (but not much). I still think both companies could stand to gaze at a few MV Agustas. The Sportster motor needs to be allowed to die a dignified death. It's like forcing Jim Brown to put on a set of pads. He might gain a few yards but it sure would be sad to watch.

Default nbyers, No offense taken:

While my Lead was brief, and glib, I had a number of questions in mind when I wrote it.



From my short time here, I was pretty sure the posts would pretty much cover everything I was wondering about, and then some; and, Whadday know, I was right.



From my point of view, Erik Buell's frame is damn near a work of GENIUS, and that's not a word I ever use lightly. I thought there were any number of applications the frame could be used for, other than a sportbike; if that is what the Buell is.



Whether you call it a Harley, or a Buell, I really think, whatever you use that frame on, would end up being pretty cool.

Personally, I think the XBs look awesome. Not enough Rake, for my taste (too twitchy) but, I like the minimalist look.



Far as the engine goes....YEAOW! That's a question loaded with TNT. I'd say, scrapt it; but, others would say, Never!



Ya gotta admit, though, love it or hate it, the Buell sure gets everybody's attention, around here.
