Default Picked up a new toy last night

I found a good deal on a Beull Firebolt. Runs strong and sounds good. Looking forward to learning all about it.
The fuel in inside the frame and the oil is in the swing arm. Kool front brake set up as well. Inverted front forks and a VERY short wheel base. Thing turns like a top....

thanks guys! looking close I can see a fair bit of abuse but for 2K I figured I can fix it up a bit. I will do some body work on all the plastics and replace aftermarket dodads with stock. I am impressed on the unique engineering on the bike. Naturally the XL motor was the deciding factor. I'll ride it around as is to see what shakes out. The short wheel base I mentioned makes it so maneuverable.

I've got an '01 Cyclone

Love the motor! It is an interesting bike all around and lots of fun to ride

That one you have looks like a good time

I admire Eric B and all he accomplished; a Harley that weighs under 500 lbs and has brakes!

Joe, Congrats on the new ride, that front brake looks like some space age new stuff, I'm sure it handles and stops very well.
