buell x1 lightning Wow where do we start with this!? An X1 is already a rare bike but as this is the Millennium Edition it’s a real find and the best bit it has only done 3485 miles! Number 052 of 800 produced worldwide, a definite classic and a piece of Buell history! Comes fitted with a Vance and Hines exhaust system so it sounds like it should. Before it leaves for its new home we’ll be giving this one a fresh oil and filter change including primary and gearbox oil and 100 point service. We only use quality products when we service our bikes and have years of experience working with Harley Davidsons and Buells.

Buells had often been criticized for their limited turning radius, and on the X1 the steering head was moved forward slightly, giving an extra four degrees in steering lock. Still tight, but better…says the photographer who had to turn this bike around. A 41mm upside-down Showa fork with a rake of 23 degrees gave 4.7 inches of travel and trail of 3.5 inches. It was fully adjustable, with spring preload along with compression and rebound damping.

Cast wheels were 17 inches in diameter, with Nissin calipers, 6-piston in front and 1-piston out back, squeezing single discs. Because the Showa fork was already drilled for it, this bike’s owner added a second front brake disc and caliper.
