many plans rolling around in my head but for now im planning on stripping it completely down for all new fresh powder coat on the frame and engine cases. Its going to get a late model Buell XB top end with heads, and a set of X1 cams.
Body parts will stay stock but custom painted. Will be upgraded with late model XB forks and an XB swingarm which will change it from the under mount pull shock to a standard upper mono. This is also the swingam with the built in oil tank so i can eliminate the factory plastic tank. Will also be getting a set of EBR wheels, custom rear drive pulley, Perimeter brake, EBR 8 pot front caliper and Brembo 4 pot rear, some wiring changes, etc..... more to come as i stripe it down for a full custom rebuild.

been slowly working on the new bike when i have time. Its mostly stripped down and i hope to build an engine stand for it this weekend so i can remove the wheels, rear swingarm, and forks.

Just finished mocking up the new late model Buell XB swingarm into the older style tube framed swingarm mount.
The white pieces are 3D printed spacers that will soon to be machined from 7075 aluminum. These get pressed into the swingarm where the original bearings were and widens the swingarm and holds the older style tapered roller bearings. This allows the XB swingarm to bolt on. Next up is fitting this and then designing a top shock mount.

How are you gonna adjust the belt tension with the late model swing arm?

Buell belts are supposed to run "scary" loose.... with that said, I'm going to have to play around with pulley tooth count / pulley diameter, belt length, and a XB style "tensioner" pulley. A friend of mine has already gone through this on his Tube framed buell with an XB swingarm so I have a good amount of info to start with.

My other option is to run my Buell XB race swingarm which has an adjustable axle. Thing is.... the XB swingarm adds 2" to the stock wheelbase, the Race swingarm adds 4".
