The last time we checked out Ludovic Lazareth’s site over in France was when he was showing off the Trirazuma. Our favorite French builder has been hard at work and this Supercharged Buell is the latest bike to roll out of his shop.
There aren’t a lot of details on his site but he took a Buell XB12S Lightning and added a blower from a Mini Cooper S, a unit he’s used before on other bikes. There’s just enough of a guard around the belt to keep your knee out of trouble. Then he added single sided front suspension, aluminum chassis modifications and new front bodywork around the headlights. The rearview mirror is impossibly small but that’s just being picky. Pretty interesting and just enough excess power to keep most anyone happy.
Lazareth has a very unique style and his work continues to amaze. The first time I saw his V-max with single sided swingarms front and rear I knew he was on a path of his own and he’s been turning out great work ever since.
Thanks for the tip, Chris!
