anyone have a Buell front end?

Anyone have a Buell front end... wheel to triples?

Or know of someone that has a wrecked Buell where the front end is still good?

Please don't say it's going to turn into one of those e-bay mutant chopper jokes.

Heads up about the front end. The XB front end is a lot different from the Tube framed front end .I think the XB's are 41mm and the tube frame ones are 43mm. I'm also not sure about the brakes on the the XB front end. With the ZTL brakes, I think the caliper is mounted differently than the tube frame forks, which run the 6 pot nissans. While I might not be exactly right, it's still something to think about.

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

I am looking into using the entire front end for a project I am working on.

Either complely new upper and lower triples, or grafting on a new stem. Not sure which direction yet. Still looking into it. I have access to get whatever I want made... it will come down to what I can get my hands on as far as parts go.
