Custom Buell Cyclone M2 Cyclone Beta MAX
Finished up this build at the end of the year, with this being my only ride I was pretty happy to finally get it back on the road. Think I'll spend some time riding this around now over summer, with some small overnight trips planned. With the custom built pannier racks it'll now make things a bit easier.
Beta-MAX named after the Video Cassette player of the same name. Just like the video player, the donor bike also shared the same fate which included a dismal sales record resulting in a limited production run. The subframe has been shortened and a fender I picked up from a swap meet attached. I shaped and glassed a new more comfortable dual seat.
I fabricated a single sided licence plate holder. I used the existing dials but side-mounted the tach and fibreglassed a new speedo mount with some LED indicators.
Check out some more photos on the website and also thanks to Taylor for the feature article on BikeBound.
