The south Florida sun aged the sh#@ outta the surface and judging from the cold, foamy oil, soot covered plugs. loose primary chain, dirt encrusted stock air filter, smooth, bald factory tires I don't think the previous owner did sh#@ to upkeep THE best two wheeled vehicle ever produced in Milwaukee.

    Here's the actual previous owner's sales pics. Personally, I'd NEVER sell anything that trashed and call it 'Good Condtioon' ..he did, but I knew it was a Buell w/ a tweaked Sportster 74ci vtwin motor.

    The last two pics are my new 190 and Cherry Bomb windshield.

    Keep your advice.
    My man. You obviously know nothing about paint. I was an auto painter for 10 years. It WILL look like crap very soon. Why donít you stop being a cheap ass and refinish the bike correctly. Iím very sure your 10$ paint job looks like a 10$ paint job. Congratulations on giving the next owner of your bike a long list of crap they have to fix. Enjoy your rattle canned garbage.

    Have you thought about why everyone keeps saying the same thing about your “paint job”? You really think ALL of us are wrong? Come on BRO

    please allow me to jump into this fray. both Michael Lowary and Cody York possess impeccable painting credentials. Their considerable expertise in this demanding field of endeavor is beyond reproach.

    also remain cognizant of the fact that, if you find it necessary to perform any XB throttle body or airbox base plate repairs or replacements....Mr. York would be your "go-to" board member.

    A few of us have been around the block. The OP should take advantage of this instead of disregarding our knowledge as BS because it’s not what he wants to hear. And thanks John

    ALL motorcycle paint fails....or it wouldn't have looked like sh$@ to begin with. No plans to sell EVER. I ain't investing $1k to paint a bike I paid $1,800 for. Again keep your advice. After this paint fades I'll sand it down and rent a pro paint gun & redo it for $250.
