Custom 1999 M2 Cyclone Project:
I absolutely hate to even think about selling this. This is my baby and I have been working on it for about 8 months now. The ONLY reason I am considering selling it is that I am currently a veterinary student, I have class from 8-5 everyday and numerous tests and surgeries every week so I have virtually no time to work on it, and I have 2 more years of school with no real summer break or anything and I do not want to see it sit. A lot of time and money has gone into this project, it pretty must just needs a few more parts and then reassembly.

The bike started it’s life as a 1999 M2 Cyclone with a little over 7k miles on it (not even broken it yet lol), the previous owner was has owned/built Harleys since the 60s and he babied this and it never was ridden in the rain and always garaged so was in excellent shape when I bought it (clean title). The bike ran and drove great, I have a video of the bike idling and running right before disassembly I can send to interested parties. The plan was for a very custom, one of a kind, like new show quality bike. A ton of parts that were perfectly fine in great shape I bought new OEM or custom parts to replace just so that everything would be like new.

What you get/what’s been done:

New front isolator- still in box
New OEM entire rear brake setup in the box (caliper, bracket, pads, etc.)
New Buell RACE ECM
NEW Buell OEM rear chrome pulley bolts (still in wrapper)
NEW OEM Buell Rear shock (complete unit straight from the dealership including the new upgraded bracket)
Forcewinder intake and filter
New Buell entire wiring harness- Old one was fine but I was building this to be a like new custom bike and wanted everything to look perfect. As I removed the old harness I used blue painters tape and taped each wire of the new harness labeling what it goes to/where to make it super quick to reinstall

Custom one of a kind Ducati Monster seat- made out of extremely durable and water proof suede/carbon fiber material, this was all done for me by HT Moto at their shop exactly how I wanted it. It turned out so good they used it as a promo image for their custom seat work. Truly incredible work
Custom Billet front and rear passenger traction footpegs, super nice

FRAME: the subframe was shortened 6”, my buddy who is a professional fabricator/machinist custom built a CNC rear plate designed for the taillight and to align perfectly with the Ducati seat, holes for the wires and mounting bolts were machined in and welded on, I removed the steering lock (its pointless and notorious for leaking water into head bearings) and has it welded up and ground perfectly flush, I cut off the mounts for the electronics on the right side lower rail of the subframe where they are mounted for the factory (factory tail hides them, they were exposed with the ducati seat) and spent hours slowly dremeling and sanding them until it is 100% flush and looks like it came from the factory that way (cleans the rear end up a ton and looks awesome), he also welded in a plate in the center, this is where the electronics (ECM/relays) now will mount 100% hidden under the seat. The frame was then shipped out to be custom powder coated by one of the best in Candy Apple Red (seems to change color with the light from lighter to darker red and has a metallic/anodizied look to it, pictures do NO justice for how awesome it came out).

SWINGARM: I spent about 3 hours slowly grinding and sanding down all of the brackets on the top of the swingarm where the factory hugger mounted (looks much better without it), the brackets for the brake lines were left. It was then also sent out to the same powdercoater and powder coated in matte black.
New intake manifold and exhaust gaskets (already installed)

New LED smoke tail light with integrated turn signals, has a comuter so you can choose various turn signals settings (flash, slow, blink, etc.)- high end tail light not a cheapo
Custom Stenzel bar (engine brace that mounts under the tank out of view, decreases vibes and supports the motor better)
LED Turn signal relay
All factory recalls have been performed.
ALL the other factory parts (not going to list every part of the bike out because that’s just silly)
Buell factory service manual
All handlebar controls, motor mounts, and all the other small parts
Rear wheel and pulley


Left to do:
Paint body work,
Headlight
Reassemble
Front end- was going to swap a GSXR front end/wheels on it (wheel looks virtually identical to the Buells)
Headlight of choice
Some various odd and end small parts (nothing expensive/big)

I am sure there are quite a few things I am missing, but this is what I can think of off the top of my head. Oh and I have TONS of pictures I took during disassembly that will come with it it (via email or flash drive) to make it much easier to reassemble so you can see where everything goes as well as the wiring harness pre labeled with painters tape).

I have asvideo of it running bight before teardown), and yes I keep every single part of it inside my house lol (except the motor is in the garage).




I am open to offers on it, I am eager to sell it, I just know if I don’t it’s going to be sitting for a long time as I have zero time to work on it in the near future. I’m also open to trades on whatever (bikes, guns, cars, whatever).


I'm also open to parting it out, just put the frame and motor on eBay, you can see a few pictures here. I have a ton more I can email to interested buyers. Make me an offer, I will make a big discount to sell it all/majority of it to one person so I don't have to ship parts all over the place

I would take $2k for everything (that is FIRM, and my no BS no haggle price, not a penny less than $2k, I could part it out and get 3500-4000 on it).

I am also open to trades on bikes, guns, or whatever. it is a killer project I just literally have ZERO time to work on anything (I'm in vet school and have class 8-5 everyday and numerous tests/surgeries throughout the week).

Located in Jackson, MS, Memphis, TN or Tuscaloosa, AL (they are all near by me and I travel to all frequently). I have no problem at all meeting a buyer half way for a little extra for gas money or even delivering it depending on the location.


I see your located in South Carolina, I've been planning on a road trip that direction around Dec 15th

It's a customized, tube framed Buell. The title isn't wrong, just a little misleading.

Correct, they call these "tube-frame buells" or "tubers" it is a custom "tube-frame" buell. Subframe has been modified, and a few other minors modifications to the frame but the majority of the frame is OEM buell as it came from the factory

Ok so just to clarify, it's a stock Buell frame with the SUBFRAME modified to accept a Monster seat. I got the complete wrong impression when I read the title as well. Seat looks really cool. Not trying to shit on your FS thread I just want everyone who's looking at it to know theyre not getting some wild custom Buell frame made frm scratch with round tubing. :thumbsup:

Would be really nice to receive the stenzel bar I paid for on the 19th!
So it's only been 10 days and you're already calling Him out in His for sale thread? :doh:

Did He tell you it would be delivered by a certain time that's already lapsed? There's been members here that had to wait months before they got their parts. Also you're not outside the continental US, right? That would obviously add some time. Even being across the country frm the seller would explain it taking up to 2 weeks.
