Hi,

Please forgive and be kind if this is a dumb question.

but i am after an XB12r and wondered (as they are a lot cheaper), can you strip down a Ulysses and make it look more like a XB12R or S ?

what i am talking about is removing the screen, hand guards, big mirrors and tail end. Replace with a smaller seat etc.

can they be lowered suspension wise bearing in mind it is the same seat height as a GS @ 841mm

and the bonus would be a better fuel capacity and pretty much double range :shock:

is it too much to piss about with or an easy realistic option

thanks :4roz:

is it all too much work :?:

What was the place that used to sell Buell bits, Twin Shack? Forgot the other name.

They used to race a Firebolt, but it was actually a Uly frame.

I think the only challenge will be making the subframe fit. I have a spare one if you’d like to help fund my tax and MOT... Saying that maybe I should sell my 12R...

I think that if you Google "Buell Uly bomber" you may get what your looking for
