Buell parts is parts

Will be updating this post a few times over the next few days.

Rear brake master cylinder reservoir

Stainless steel reservoir. Safety wire mounts to secure the top.
Off to the right is the inline oil filter I am trying on this one.

I made an aluminum top first, then thought about the dis-similar metal electrolysis and went stainless.
Rear brake - done.
When I mocked the rear fender, it seemed all good. When I got it back after painting it seemed all fubar. Not the painter's fault - my fault. So I modified and built stuff to get this. Should be fine.

Oil tank plumbing was tight.
Stainless. The endplates were the first things I ever used on my english wheel.

I made the exhaust out of - what else? - stainless tubing, from Burns Stainless. Just some straight pieces and prebent elbows of a couple differant sizes. There are some baffles in the muffler.





  1. Jeebus, man. That thing is pretty. Your ability to come up with the little bits of attention to detail is cool. Someday maybe I'll be more than just an assembler...

  2. Hello
    My name is Pierpa and I write from Rome, Italy. I saw your blog and ion particular disc brake mounted on the pulley of your Buell M2.
    Can I ask how you made it (photos, drawings, notes ...) because I would like to create something similar for my xb and I'm looking for some ideas for mounting the disk on the pulley.
    Thank you very much for your time
