Current ride: Buell X1 Lightning
Hi all,

Before this goes up for sale online, I thought I would advertise here, given it's more likely to be appreciated and given a good home. I'm just not using her! See pics and a video of her running, apologies for the poor quality.

FSH with Harley/Buell specialist, Good condition, very customized (I realize that it won't be everyone's cup of tea!), Less the 10K on the clock. MOT Sep 2018. Starts on the button, no smoke, no leaks.

Some interesting bits:

  1. Converted to Carb - Mikuni HSR 42 I believe, was having too much trouble with the injection
  2. Chromed and painted bits - see photos. The Chrome has gone on several pieces, which is disappointing! The chrome plater used isn't being used anymore! I've tried to capture that on the pictures, and reflect in the price I hope. This is the only thing that lets her down, I think. (Other than my questionable taste!)
  3. Pretech 6-pot brake calipers - they are ridiculous and some nice wavy floating disks
  4. Buell Ulysses Bars - makes her a little more comfy
  5. After-market Vance and Hines Exhaust - sounds nice!
  6. Very sticky tires :)

Any questions feel free to post on this thread, or PM me, and I'll share my phone number, if you would like a chat or arrange a viewing. I am likely to advertise elsewhere this weekend.

£4K ONO

Location: Reading, Berkshire.

Thanks for looking.

It's ticking over a bit fast.
But you obviously don't ride it fast, as you were being overtaken by a snail! :rotfl:

Hahaha - I think I'd literally just started her, so she was still on choke.

Ah, yes, I forgot you have a carb! My F.I. has never given me a problem. The fuel pump did, so I replaced it with a Fuel Performance pump, 100 quid and a lifetime guarantee, and I also put in Bosch injectors. Never missed a beat.

Some nice bits, I paid far too much for the same rear pulley.

That was the justification for the high purchase price in the US, then came the shipping (over twice the expected figure) and then got hit hard at customs. To this day my mind is incapable/ unwilling to add those 3 numbers up to come up with a final figure...........but it does look good with a PM wheel.
