In 2016, the first motorcycle off of Erik Buell Racing (EBR)’s production line was a “1776” Limited Edition 1190RX superbike. It was a limited edition with an American flag livery that was officially called the 1776 Limited Edition, though lots of riders just called them the Patriots.
Jason LeCavalier of Artistimo Customs was hired to paint seven of the Patriots – he told us that “one was auctioned off for charity and the other retained by EBR so only 5 were available for sale.” The bike that was auctioned off for charity was VIN #1, and that’s what we have over on Iconic today (VIN: 546AAAG22GE000001). In addition to the bike, the owner got a personal email from none other than Erik Buell thanking him for his purchase/donation to Fisher House.
The owner had EBR install a factory race kit (exhaust, ECU, and gearing) before taking delivery. The odometer shows 74 miles – the seller calls this “a piece of art in my collection that’s been ridden every 4th of July since I’ve had it.” The sole significant cosmetic blemish is a pair of scratches on the right side of the swingarm, we believe they are from a rear wheel stand.
