Hi Skuzzer.

 Yup, '02 lightning had the Cast Iron barrel lump so the post is in the right place.

 There is one over here that I know of it was either a gray market or personal import I think but none were imported through the official US Importer.

I would love to see a Lightning in person.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

REA #136

"TIMEX", the '06 Iron Barrel Military that takes me everywhere I want to go... and some places I shouldn't.

It's basically just a Bullet with a 535 kit, you know.
Maybe some slight styling mods, cruiser style.
It was an Indian home-market model.

Unless you wanted one for collector value as an original, you could make any Bullet into the equivalent of a Lightning very easily.
