Current ride: 1997 S1
Location: Worthing, West Sussex
For sale is my 1997 Buell S1 Lightning.
16,169 miles now (I’ve only done 2,330 miles in the 10 years I’ve owned it.
It is in excellent condition and always garaged.
I’m strictly a fair weather rider so it only goes out when the weathers good!
Performs faultlessly (never had a problem with it).
Black bodywork with Holtworks slim Alloy tank.
Last serviced in March 2018.
Full service and overhaul in November 2015 by Tubbs.
It will have a full MOT upon sale.
Looking for offers over £4,000.
I’m offering it here on UKBEG before advertising elsewhere.
PM me for more details.
Damned if I can work out how to post piccies on here so please click on link....

But I'm culling the herd this time. :)

That's a shame, Garry, you were one of the SE Posse originals from the turn of the century, along with Betty, Chris, Normie, that mad Italian (whose name momentarily escapes me), Lorna the Thong :P and a few others... if yours sells, it will be only me and Kev keeping tbe faith now!

What about Doug (S1NNER) he still hangs around on his Buell doesn't he? IIRC Doug was the very first member to post on our forum way back when I made the group virtual. You mean Giuseppe, (or Cristiano?). I remember the others, where's Lorna now? We never had enough female members. But I can't think who that particular Chris was?

Chris and Betty are one and the same lOl , Giuseppe was Gi and S1nner is a Hertford boy, almost a Norvan Monkee lOl

I was always too Northern to become a proper Southern Softie but further regular contributors were Buelling Benny and Happy Jack. Most of these people make occasional appearances over on the other side :roll:

You know, I'm sure we met, but I can't picture Doug :?
...but here's another name for you; Red Star lOl
That's him, Giuseppe the StoppyMaestro!
Cristiano; also mad in a nice way, his riding gear was anyone else's beach gear :sun:
Sorry, not Chris, I'm thinking of Roy... who had an S1WL.
And Happy Jack with his Duracell S1
And Steve from Guildford RIP :sad1:

Jack Nicole, Happy Jack. Sold his Buell ages ago, never to be heard of again. I did get in touch once when I wanted some info about Chiswick where he hailed from. Apart from that, disapeared without trace.

And Steve from Guildford RIP :sad1:

Giuseppe's X1, the front end collapsed on him (broken top yoke, near the pinch bolt) failed soon after routine maintenance on the bike by Warrs. (I heard of a few similar failures there on S1 and X1's).

And, yes, Tim "red star" Holloway who was originally from near Watford but moved to Brighton and set up a HD customising shop. No idea what happened after that.

Cristiano still has his S1W and I understand from Giuseppe quite recently, he has it in his living room in Italy.

Funnily enough, I never really found Happy Jack to be so happy. He loved his Sherlock Holmes pipe, I recall. He is an accountant, suppose that explains a lot.

Cableman, yes, Steve RIP.


We lost quite a few over the years. Very sad, there but for the grace of god etc.....

Yes, Tim "red star" Holloway bought American Motorcycle Works down here in Sussex, but it didn't work out and it closed rather suddenly. He did a disappearing act rather sharpish (over the Atlantic I believe). I did hear he came back some time later but probably kept a low profile as suppliers and customers were left in the lurch (so I was told).
