It is pretty easy to make business on Buell parts, there is always something brakes on Buell motorcycles.

The only thing broken is your English.

The seller is 3-dparts (this is one reason I thought Lance was involved, for the record, he says he is not). But it doesn't really matter, he lists part ONLY by part #, not by description. So if you search for Buell front forks, you will not see his listing, but if you search for the part #, you will. He sells everything in the warehouse, not just Buell parts. He sell Ford, Honda, whatever. He does not stock any parts and therefore has NO pics, he is simply selling a part #. Every part carries a $12.95 shipping charge so this is not always great for small parts, but I had a set of NEW forks delivered for $26! I've bought 6 items from him, and all were almost exactly 35% off retail, but I just looked up his price for a 3 bearing rear wheel and it is $800, so I'm not sure what's going on there. But like I said, I've made 6 larger purchases from the guy and all have been flawless.

SPHD sells the 3-bearing wheel kit for $300, IIRC. In your choice of one of two colors!

I am aware of that, that is why I mentioned it in my previous post. The 3 bearing wheel is not lining up with his typical 35% off.

I got screwed too many times at SPHD, and their assinine non-system of non-inventory that requires you to call to confirm availability before ordering online just doesn't work for me. Nor does the fact they carry many more Buell parts that they list on the website, you have to call and see if they have it, and the atrocious service I am completely done.

HOWEVER!!!

I am really glad that you all have received your parts and been treated well there, so I am now re-naming this thread, the new title is:

- SPHD is awesome, here's why -

Ready,

GO!

In a prior post I said I had no problem with SPHD. Things change. A decal I ordered for my fly screen was defective. The adhesive aged and would not stick to the mounting surface. When I contacted SPHD, they said they do not allow decals to be returned for refund or exchange.

Any decals are pretty crappy solution. Any logo should be painted, engraved or molded on surface.

Tpehak, Buell did not use painted, engraved or surface molded logos on the Ulysses. All badging was stick on decals.

Yeah, I know. Just don't be disappointed with SPHD, but be disappointed with Buell.
