    2007 Buell XB12Ss Lightning 1100 original miles

    SOLD. SOLD. SOLD

    The expanded ergonomics of the Lightning Long XB12Ss make it better suited to taller riders. The wheelbase is stretched two inches, to 54 inches, thanks to an extended swingarm. The seat is taller and wider than that of the XB12S, and the expanded tail section offers more room for a passenger. There’s also a larger under-seat storage compartment


    Fork rake is increased from 21 to 23.5 degrees and trail goes from 3.3 inches to 4.7 inches. Larger frame side panels give the Lightning Long a fuel-in-frame capacity of 4.4-gallons. The Lightning Long is powered by the Buell Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin with Buell InterActive Exhaust. Like all Buell motorcycles, the handling remains quick and responsive.
    The Lightning Long is available in Sunset Orange with Sunset Orange wheels, and Midnight Black with Designer Black wheels, both with a Graphite Gray frame

    I've low sided a lightning at 35 miles an hour and it looked exactly like the side of that bike. That did not happen from falling over.

    being 66 and having bought and sold bikes and cars since i was 14...i've pretty much seen and heard it all. my three all-time favorite "sales stories" associated with used vehicles are:

    1-i just bought a mint condition 1957 F-code Thunderbird for $300. how? owner was driving home from work late one night...was snowing....got drowsy...pulled into parking lot to take a nap...backed it up against a pile of freshly plowed snow which blocked the exhaust outlets....had it idling for some heat...and died of carbon-monoxide poisoning. found 2 days later and car smelled so bad they couldn't rid the corpse aroma from it, so sold for scrap.

    2-just bought a mint condition 1963 Corvette split window coupe for $150. widow of original owner listed it in local paper. she thought it was a Corvair so sold it really cheap. couldn't believe it was actually a Corvette when i got to her house.

    3-recent divorcee receives a like-new 1983 Harley-Davidson XR1000 as part of divorce proceeding. shortly thereafter she gets a notice that the judge suspended her "alimony payments" for failure to appear in court. in a fit of rage she takes a hammer to the poor XR as part of some misguided revenge against the judge and hubby. but it still runs like new. my sisters' boyfriend knows her and put me in touch. got it for $200.

    Yea !!! One could clearly see the scrapes were not a drop but a slow low side down

    Nice bike but over priced with a Bad frame dent .

    Back story:

    Guy in Floriduhhh tries to flip a Buell, he tries to hide low-side damage with a new-but-wrong-sized frame puck, that is stupid, lame, and deceitful, so guy makes up a fake story to get more than its worth, forum members call him out for being a lying SOB, guy runs away with pants around ankles.

    Hey OP, try again. Take $1500 off the price, be HONEST about what you know about it, and type that in a new ad that isn't a total and obvious lie. Your "Time Machine" is a 13 year old bike that was low-sided, left to rot, bought by you for $1700, got washed and cheap tires and is still dangerously unused and in need of real care. Now you want to retire on flipping one bike.
    Either you are a complete idiot to believe that a mongo-she-woman can throw down a Buell at 30mph story, or you are a complete scumbag for trying to pass it off.

    Hey Lunatic! I'll take that 'Vette off your hands for double what you paid!

    Cooter! No way! That frame puck is correct for a SS.

    The rest of your description is pretty spot on.

    Is it just me or is the rear tail light/turn signal housing a different color than the rear sub frame?

    That is not abnormal. I've seen that on some XB's.
