Successor of the iconic S1 White Lightning. By Hillbilly-Motors.
In 1998, Erik Buell revolutionised the Tubeframers’ engine concept vastly by introducing the Thunderstorm Technologies. In order to celebrate and present this milestone in a proper way, the company launched the unforgettable S1 White Lightning. 8 years later, we launched its tribute and successor – the XB12 Allwhite.
Apart from the flawless paint job, the first thing most notice are of course the beautiful wheels. They are Italian tubeless wire wheels by Alpina Raggi made exclusively for Hillbilly-Motors. You could choose any colour combinations of anodising. The wheels accepted the stock brake- and pulley components and were even DOT/TÜV approved. There’s still one set in our possession in 2021 – the Star-and-Stripes one that was mounted on the Chronos. The Braking Wavediscs was new back then a cool looking alternative for all Buell XB Bikes.
The then-brand-new XB 12 Termignoni (also Italian) kept the Buell active exhaust system for maximum midrange torque and were available aluminium or titanium. Our 2006 BKG triples were made in finest aircraft aluminium and were re-constructed to accept a front mounting kit for the steering damper. All BKG Parts could be ordered in any anodising colour of your choice.
The fully adjustable BKG fotpegs were the finest system on the market money could buy. The two excentres offered a wide range for the rider’s individual adjustment. Also the levers had multiple adjustment possibilities. Milled in a perfect shape out of highest grade aircraft aluminium, we delivered this dream in any anodising colour. The “Speed” Tail insert kit came with white or red LED TÜV approved tail light.
For those who don’t know: before we moved to Sweden, we used to own Hillbilly-Motors – the single largest supplier of Buell after market parts in the world. The company was sold in 2006, the same year we moved from Germany to Sweden. We decided to collect all official project bikes here as well – just for fun really!
