this customized 1996 S1 Lightning is the bike that Buell should have built in the first place. And ironically, the tank and the headlight come from a raid on the Milwaukee parts bin: the tank is from a 1998 White Lightning, and the headlight is from a V-Rod. With a Ducati 999 rear subframe and tail section grafted on, this Lightning is positively good lookin’.
It’s the work of Paul Shore, who runs the Canadian workshop Motorrad Performance. Shore bought the bike new and immediately started customizing it, but the incarnation we’re looking at here is a recent one—with fresh styling and a major performance boost — via Bike EXIF
