Bullet Lightning 535 ? Anyone ?


Mesa looking around for a cheapo bike

came across a Lightning 535 for 35k. I don't know much actually anything about bullets so could someone let know if this is ok? The bike has been unused for about a year or so.

Personally I hate bullets and see them and unreliable junk bikes. I have ridden a std 350 and the older thunderbird.

Re: Bullet Lightning 535 ? Anyone ?

the 535 is a power machine, let down by sad brakes and a bad gearbox. Also the spares for the engine are hard to source. And are damn expensive. For eg cylinder kit for std Cast iron block is like 3k, for this its like 7k! For 35 k, you can get a decent 90s std or machismo. try and stretch your budget to 45 or 50k, and you can get a good 2002-2004 electra or machismo or thunderbird even. Pour your ideas in further so we can help you in the right direction.

Re: Bullet Lightning 535 ? Anyone ?

Tbirds if you interested go for a post 2003 or 2003 model. the initial models had issues with the cams and oil pumps and were prone to failures. ALso the AVL aluminium engine that is present in the machismo and the tbird, is vastly different from the Cast iron block that you have in the std, electra etc. The AVL is a high revving engine, and has to be kept in the right revs to keep the engine from degrading itself and wearing out. The CI engine can be run like a frickin tractor, from zero revs. Riding style has to vary between the AVL and the CI engined bikes.

Also i would suggest a decent condition electra if you can live with the interchanged gears. Though the best buy IMO atm is the 5 speed electra with the gears on the left ( the right kind).

Bullets break a lot of money when going second hand, thats why you can get decent steals if you look hard enough. And generally a bullet thats done less mileage has a lot left in it than other bikes.


Edit - where are you based?

Re: Bullet Lightning 535 ? Anyone ?

^^ no just checking if they are available at that price!! though a souped up 80cc moped wont be that bad an idea. They actually race those down south and those babes can zoom, talk about doing 100 plus kmph, on a spindly frame with equally cycle like tyres, and brakes that are smaller than my hand!!! they have balls and guts and everything else made of admantium for what i can say. deep respect for the riders!!
