Hey fellaz ive fooled around with asian bikes for close to 10 years but found a good deal on a 2002 x1 frame and am thinking of picking it up for a project, as far as parts go, how "Interchangeable are parts on these things ie different engines/front ends etc?? Is it a go or no go[up][down]??

Go for it! I think you will find that a lot of stuff bolts on. Most people use the xb stuff for their tubers. Wheels, front brake system, swing arm and so on. Good luck!

hope you went for it.. buells are a blast, especially a tuber frame buell. I have a 99 and love it to death. This is coming from a guy who used to ride an 03 r1. Im more of a back twisty road rider then a highway 150+ rider... so its all in what you want. To me a tube frame buell is like a muscle car, basic and raw.

As far as parts go, any tuber motor will bolt right in. You have you choice of swingarms (old box style, 99+ aluminum, or even a XB if you want to get custom but some weldings involved). The nice thing is, the tuber motors share everything with a sportster as well but make double the hp.

Like the poster above, may XB parts fit or can be made to fit. I have XB wheels, brakes, triples, forks, etc on my X1.

good luck
