    completely unmolested and all the cool OEM cityX parts still there. great find! curious how you found it anthony and was it close to home? i love "finds" like that and the hero blue cityX is a pretty rare piece and one of the most enjoyable knocking-around buells ever made. i've had probably 20 assorted cityX's thru the years and still own a few. NOTE: if and when you ever need anything from H-D/Buell dealerships they never listed any parts using "cityX" as model reference. you order using model designation SX....taken right from the VIN.

    Well this weekend, the XB9SX is running again after 14 years, I put 10 miles on it and no problems ! I cleaned the tank using both methods provided here just to be safe, and what took the most time was making sure all the water and cleaner was out of the lower right side of the tank........John "lunaticfringe" thank you for the new fuel pump works like a charm !! I will post pics of the bike after I get the 14 years of dust off.............
