Buell Ulysses XB12X by Revival Cycles

In the field of bike customs, before and after photos are always a fun exercise in examining just how far the experts in the business can take a bike from its original format. Take this 2007 Buell Ulysses for example. The stock version resembles more of a moped than an actual bike. However, the good people over at Revival Cycles did a fantastic job at giving this Buell the facelift it deserved.

They started by completely dissembling the machine, ridding it of every piece that wasn’t critical to the final project. Revival then replaced any necessary parts with lighter ones to shave off some weight. For example, its lead acid battery was replaced in favor of a Lithium-Ion one, saving almost seven pounds. The factory subframe was also ditched for a custom-built aluminum frame that gave the dirt bike a thinner, more upright appearance better suited for all-day off road excursions. And since this is a dirt bike by nature, Revival made sure to replace the boring stock wheels with spoked Excel alloy wheels to better fit their knobby tires of choice. They also outfitted the bike with a carefully mounted stainless twin outlet exhaust system. The final result is a sleek and lightweight aluminum off-road yet street-legal machine for one lucky owner.
