Actually, I like it! Stock tires back on it and that mofo would be a wicked hill climber.

Ha! All 13 horses...

NOBODY sells their daily driver/go-to bike because it's "taking up space in the stable." That's bubba's dumbass idea project bike that sits in the corner that he doesn't feel like maintaining. The last time that bike ran before he took it out to that parking lot was last summer when his friends got drunk and raced it around the house.

This bike is zero maintenance except for the 1 quart of oil it takes and gas.
.
Quart of oil ?!?!?! how often? Carter's worn out XR80R smokes like a 2 stroke and doesn't use anywhere near that.

Buyer beware.

'06 Ulysses for $5500. Looks good. You don't see Uly's pop up for sale often.

I had one a couple years ago. Nothing but problems with it. I practically ended up giving that thing away. Never again!

Buell XB1200 with a little road rash for $1500. Might be a good start to a fun project.

Kinda sad to see a fella just give up like that...

Unless you're looking for what he's selling.

Hell, it is worth more than that in parts. I've seen a few chop builders throw down close to $1k just to get those wheels and brakes for custom builds. If there is anything I remember about riding a XB1200, it is that the front brake would stop on a dime, which was good since the rear brake seemed non-existent.

Somehow I think this is a better deal than the stretched TW200 a few posts back.
