Buell Says Yes She Can
This striking machine is based on a 2009 Buell S1, an intriguing piece of machinery itself. While the donor bike already looks brutal and has a menacing stance, Filippo went ahead with some hacking and sawing to modify the tail and make it shorter and even more aggressive.
The short seat and the absence of a rear fender makes this bike a bit unpractical for riding in the wet, but we hardly believe the commissioner of this build had touring plans for it. The fork was replaced with a chunky 45mm Showa unit and dual 320mm discs have been added, instead of the traditional large-diameter peripheral ones usually seen on Buells.
A bigger rear rim was accommodated for a sportier look and now the rear end of the bike looks both light and very compact. A SuperTrapp 2-into-1 low-swung let-side exhaust balances the looks of the bike and is a great match for the underbelly suspension. Adding in the elegant white frame and rims, a completely naked attire and a minimalist headlight makes the Yes She Can look neat and tidy and ultra-aggressive at the same time.
