Last Buell to Barber Motorsports Museum

The final Buell motorcycle produced at the company’s East Troy, Wis., factory, a 2010 Buell Lightning XB12Scg, has been donated to the Barber Motorsports Museum in Leeds, Ala., along with several other representative models from the company’s 26-year production history.

A total of 12 motorcycles were donated to the collection, including a 1996 S3T Thunderbolt, a 1999 X1 Lightning, several clay model prototype mock-ups, and a pair of modified motorcycles used by stunt riders Craig Jones and Bubba Blackwell.

"We’re very pleased to be able to add to the Barber Museum’s already extensive collection of Buell motorcycles, and hope that the many motorcycle enthusiasts who visit their museum will enjoy seeing these motorcycles along with the rest in their fine collection," said Jon Flickinger, President and Chief Operating Officer of Buell Motorcycle Company.
