I'm gonna be embarking on a serious winter project with my wifes Buell. I was thinking about getting a frame from ******* Engineering and doing this to it. Has anyone ever done this? Pitfalls etc? Thanks for comments and any help. If anybody has a different idea for a frame I'm open to ideas because its not gonna be cheap from those guys.

Thought about doing that to my sporty, but using their bopper frame. There is a local shop here in Hanover, PA Called (Winebrenner) They will do it and title your bike as a HD also they will have the vin stamped right into the frame

I really want to do the work myself, do they sale just the frame? Ive done all the work to my V-rod so I'm kinda itching to do all the work on this project.

We just started one at CP. Red Neck Eng. comp. us a frame and sheet metal kit to build a Turbo Mutant. You may have to do a little adjusting on your motor mount. The welds on the frame are perfect. They are a lot of fun to ride. If you need any help just send me a PM.

Lonnie, ******* is gonna be your best bet. They have been doing it the longest. They know what works.
Really its gonna be cheapest just to go with there tank, fender and oil bag also. It will not require any fab work.
You start mixing and matching parts, youll lose your @$$ in trying to make everybodys parts work together.
Vince will also custom make those frames to spec for the same price. When you get time well take a trip out to there shop.

Lonnie, That thing will rock. I will tell you what, we have the same taste. The mutants are bada$$. Throw a 88inch kit in the Buell engine or even a 1250 Revolution kit and it will rock.

The only issue I see is using the EFI XB9 engine. Most of the Mutant are the older carbed 1203cc engines. Not sure what you will do with the ECM, intake, and such.

Ken Ill put a tuning system on it, not sure what just yet but something. Buell makes a race ecm for the more wide open exhaust etc. Deff a consideration! Exhaust is another thing too. I was thinking about the BUB 2-1 pipe

You will also have to keep in mind that the intake has the filter above like on the VRod not like a older style Buell with the side intake.
