From what I've read nothing more then a typical Harley scooter.

I seriously want a older tuber Buell. I like the idea of the Harley motor but
can't do a cruiser type chassis.

Bad Weather has more info then you could possibly want...

and as far as my M2 review.... I freaking love this bike! I have never ridden a bike like this before, usually the low slung, apes type harleys and holy smokes, this bike is a very comfy ride, posture is good even for an old dude with a bad back. It has gobs and gobs of torque if your in the right gear. I can easily clutch up in first and second and when hammered will lift the tire on the shift to third.
The idle is weirdly smoother than my last harley (I had 585 cams in the last one :-) ), the cam set in this motor is made to give the seat of the pants torque grunt to come out of the turns and compete with the high revving 4 cyl bikes.
The intake is a rediculously huge breadbox thingy that eric buell designed for anti-reversion etc etc, but its the ugliest thing that doesnt at all "flow' with the looks of the bike.
As a new rider of buells and coming from a hot rod harley, I have to say this bike handles like a dream, stops on a fkn dime with change and its light enough to easily run the out of the twistys and waaaay quicker than the stock 1200xl sporty.
The previous was an unsolicited M2 review from teh Scooter ...

no way I would go backwards in handling and chopper it, this is a fkn blast to ride like it is, it will smoke smoke harleys easily and will out turn them as well, i'm gonna mess with me some arrogant harley dudes with this

thats another reason I took the gamble and bought it w/o hearing it run, it was so clean and unmolested., even the bread box was still on it thats the only thing I plan on changing, I will make my own low profile critter and pc it black and be happy.

Yea, that is the first thing that tends to go. I'm pretty sure any cleaner
that fits a stock sporty will go on. The stock sporty cleaners seem to be the
favorite (probably because they are cheap because the sporty guys took them of their scooters...)

You should love it. It is basicly a "standard" bike with a massaged sporty motor.

Kudos to you and your find.
