2008 Buell XB12R Firebolt to Lightning
With only a Salvage Title at hand, I've managed to rebuild a wrecked 2008
Buell XB12 Firebolt into the Lightning model of my dreams and getting it
passed the Transportation Safety Board's inspection. With many thanks to
TwinMotorcycles, Buellforum.nl, BuellXB.com and many others for their
respective support. A deep bow to BuellXB's forum member Typeone for giving
me the inspiration. Thanks bro.
