    What happened to all of the shakers and doers on the fourm?

    Ive been a member for a minute and lurked a couple of years before that. I took a break for awhile moved to fxrs to knuckles.. but know Im full circle, so back to buells. Kinda thought I would see someone working on a new project or some raffle for some Buell related thing.

    Or did everyone go underground?

    As of right now Im working on two projects. My personal Buell #3 and my old Buell brothers Buell from Hawaii.

    He was hit in the city 2 years ago, and I was hit in the hills last year. So Im doing complete cleanups on both. So his will be completely blacked out and mine will be black with the hammer tone motor. I should have both done in two weeks when most of the parts come from the powdercoater.

    Will you be swapping to a RX frame ? or the SX ? The frame of an RX has tabs to mount the left and right fairings. The Sx frame doesn't

    I'm still here, just don't build as much as I used to. No real custom projects in quite a while, just repairing crash damages and a frame swap on a bike I bought 2 years ago but still haven't rode yet.

    True, but I need whatever I can get and register for a reasonable cost. The Hotbodies RX fairings I use are pretty solid, NOT as nice as OEM by a long shot, but reasonable mount without those tabs.

    The biggest issue is correctly titling registering it in CA I have 3 definite, solid, convincing, answers from the CHP that are totally different from each other

    Hey Squid, you're in the SF Bay Area?
    I was lucky enough to inherit Nick's cafe racer. It was so special, I had to take it to the CHP as well, to prove it wasn't cobbled together from stolen pieces.

    All the old regulars left the forum, some still lurk here. Quite a few went to facspace, it is mainly new Buellers that ask questions that have been answered 10000000 times. It is a fun place to troll.

    I kinda figured people would be all over Buells right now because they are so cheap.

    I myself kinda got out of Buells myself. Just cause there is no money in them. I still have my two personal Buells that I will keep until they die.
    I only have one left in storage and I doubt that I’m going to work on it anytime soon.

    Kinda figured it will bottom out then go up like k models then I will dust it off and sell it

    But as of right now I have my 5 projects I want to finish by the end of the year.
    1) clean ups of the two Buells
    2) weld the tank tabs back on my big wheel chopper and do some more head work.
    3) finish my 37 Harley bobber
    4) finish my 48 Pan
    5) finish my 51 Pan
