Too bad your in southern Louisiana. I'd consider trading you for my 05 black xb12scg because I want a firebolt.

buelrder3158; where u located? I prefer the lighting over the fireblt personally...
I could accommodate a shipping company; I have acces to bike shipping pallets, and a fork lift.... I think paperwork would be a struggle do to the lack of physical presence, and plus I have a slight payoff issue....
let me m ow what your thinking..

I'm located in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. Not really inclined to trade motorcycles having never seen yours up close.

i took bike to the dealer; the service manager listened to it and he said that alot of the buells made a noise like that from factory, but he said mine is a liittle louder than the norm....*
I fouledthe rear plug putting in back o truck and taken it out... so now its only runnin on one cyl... but thats no big deal. my dads got a Harley resto shop and had been doin harleys for almost 50 years.... he said that it
sounds like a valve train issue, that's y the plugs r *fouling alot.... he said the valves may not be opening enough due to a broken valve spring....*but he didn't spend alot of time to diagnose it....
I know it's not in the lower end.... but for some reason I feel it's a piston or a wrist pen....

all I know is my wife is pissed cuz I've got a new baby and 2 harleys, along with a boat....*

I totaly understand.. us trading isn't really something that could be put together without alot of inconveniences.... but maybe if you were closer....

I wish I had more time to spend on it.... it rides fine, i know it won't take much to fix; especially if someone is handy with a wrench cuz parts are cheap, it's the labor that gets ya!!!!

u know what would be an ideal trade.....

my bike for an older tube frame buell and $1600 cash!
prefer an s1, x1 or m2, something like that,
it doesnt really matter the kinda shape its in, as long as its rideable and safe......

am i nuts or is there any takers????

I see alot so called"french buyers" asking for seller to ship to France or other companies.... is that scams like craigslist.... or legit?

Shipping to France and such is a total scam. Always try to go with local buyers.
