I might as well go look at Instagram photos of bikes or just Google Image search for ones - they’re about as touchable as any bike that appears on BAT.

Awhile ago, someone on this forum said they offered their BUELL for auction on BaT...and was rejected!! :rolleyes: :shocked: :huh:  That's why I thought this was interesting.... :wink:

Another brand I have yet to see on listed on BaT is "Victory" (....just sayin') :wink:

As a Buell owner, I have found that oem  parts are running out.  If you own or buy one, start hoarding repair parts.  Some parts are interchangeable wit h.d., some are UJM and some are unique.  It is the unique parts that are not available. 

Relative to othe motorcycle, very few of these bike were built.  Finding and keeping an all OEM bike is impossible.

I was the owner of the Buell S1 they turned down.  Here's a picture of it:




As you can see from the photo, it was a real ragged out piece of crap! No wonder BAT didn't want it!  :shocked:

Pretty rare Buell, this was the last Buell model, before the HD dump. Prior to the public announcement, I was in a HD dealer, walked past an 1125 CR, and did a double take on the $5000 price tag. The salesman then let me know about Buell getting the axe by the mother company. I was very surprised by both the price, and that EB was getting shafted.

Thanks for posting JJ.

Hi Motormike! 

Isn't that strange that they turned your "mint" BUELL down, but now we see this one...????  Who knows what they were thinking.   :rolleyes: :huh:  :shocked:

By the way, I have never seen any Victory motorcycles on BaT either, and none in the **SOLD **RESULTS section, either... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Yes.  BAT has some super-secret handshake which I have yet to figure out.
