personaly I think its ugly as frak and aboot as useful as tits on a bull [down]

just my humble opinion

03-04-2010, 07:02 AM
That fat tire has me drooling. I would put it on my bike if i could.

I'd really like to see someone try to sit on that. It looks like the pegs around about a foot away from the seat. I would get in trouble for pretending I was batman all the time.

every time i see these ugly monstrosities I can't help but think about how much rarer my babies are. I do not get why people do this I mean there are millions of sportsters around but there is only 135000 buells around. A sportster is already a slow over weight piece of junk so why not make them into these monstrosities instead?

There is nothing in it that resembles Buell. So tell me why it's called Buell Lightning Custom made? Because of the engine in it? If that's it, it's just dumb.

firebolt I agree every time I see a Buell chopper I think what a shame. We need a slogan "Save a Buell go kill a ****ster".

03-04-2010, 02:26 PM
so sad.. I have only seen a handful of Buell choppers, but its a ugly seen.. I feel the bike was never meant for it, why turn into a chopper? a sportseter is perfect for it, so why not use it. oh well my 2cents

It does have the s1 tube frame so I guess with some ebaying you could go back to stock.

07-06-2010, 08:05 PM
I agree with you too, killed a buell for nothing, but if i were him i would pick buell over sporty for the following reasons ( better power, not paying for the harley name, cheapier)

07-06-2010, 08:13 PM
That thing looks like the basic chopper. not custom to me either, I agree with buddhabuell, tits on a bull!

07-06-2010, 11:01 PM
I am going out on a limb, but if it would be ridable I would ride it! I do hate the exhaust and front fork though if that makes anyone feel better [smirk]

I love **** like that that, it looks unridable.

And the thing out of the ENTIRE bike that grabs my attention the most is the hacked up leaf spring for the rear suspenion

Sure it isnt a Buell, but if I seen someone riding this thing down the rode I would sure as hell want them to stop so I could look at it and see all the mechanical aspects and what nots. It looks horrendous but it is a complete custom, I guess I appeciate that.

Here is my eye candy out of the whole bike, strikes me as just strange and not really sure why it grabs my attention but it does........

Why a cut up leaf???

Why a cut up leaf???

IDK? Looks like he threw in a "dash" of ratrod here and there.Not that thats a bad thing,Been thinkin of throwing a rat together myself.

I too can appreciate the effort and unique engineering that went into it. overall build quality looks good(aside from that flimsy looking shifter).

with that said, IMO it's hideous! and even if i had the $$ i'd never drop it for that. And if someone gave it to me i'd sell it ASAP to someone with more money than sense

I agree but I would throw a couple miles on it first, no more though cause I hate splinters and I am sure your ass would be full of them from the wood seat. Not to mention a couple visits to the chiropractor[smirk]

Yeah, I'd put a COUPLE on it too.More out of curiosity about the suspension than anything else. I've rode fat tired bikes before...not much fun in curves.

Kinda late.. but thats called a 1/4 elliptical suspension. its fairly "advanced" in the fact of the setup... we use it in jeeps a lot... I mean the actual expensive $20-30k rock crawling jeeps. Even the c6 corvette uses it. it works.
