Buell S1WL restoration

Some time ago my good friend/Buell freak/XL1200S brother Alberto introduced me to Pierluigi Alghisi; chatting with him and seeing his works I understood the reason why the Buell guys call him "the Doctor".
Pierluigi is a long time Buell fan and into his own garage takes good care of many Buell from Italy and Europe with dedication and true passion.
In spring our man received this S1WL, it was used but not abused showing signs of its 2 decades of life: the plan was to make a total restore to original condition. 
Almost anything on this one has been inspected and rebuilt: oil pump, carburetor, distribution, tranny and clutch, suspensions, brakes, electrics...........
Frame and wheels had the original nuclear blue paint but the body was resprayed in black, now the original molten orange is back in place and it's gorgeous.
Rare bits as the huge air filter and the stock rear fender found their way on the S1.
Another satisfied customer out there!
Alberto and Pierluigi are definitely bringing me to the "dark side" of the sporty engine!!!
If you want to check Pier's other works and get in touch with him give him a follow on Instagram------> darkholemechanical2
