Restored 1963 Royal Enfield Bullet! This is a G2 VIN, which means it was manufactured in the UK, and assembled in India (VIN number in this posting, you can research it). I bought it as a "barn find" while assigned in India, and had it completely restored. We converted the original 6v system to 12v, and updated drum brakes. Also, it was originally a 350, but I had it modified to a 500cc with all the correct parts to do so.
She runs, rides, and shifts beautifully. I just changed out the starter dog.
This is an antique British bike, so the gear shift is on the right, and the rear brake on the left.
I have 2 leather saddle bags for it, and the pillion seat is mounted (you don't see to many springer pillions like this), so she good for 2 up.
I have all the original documentation, and the Virginia title. I also have pictures of the restoration.
Also, I have loads of spare parts to go with it, and a Royal Enfield branded cover.
I have 4 motorcycles, including a 1969 Royal Enfield Bullet, which I will be keeping (see the red one in one of the pics), and I just don't need 2 Bullets as I don't have time to ride them all.
For those of you unfamiliar with these bikes, it's great single thumper for riding back roads. It is not appropriate for long hauls on US Interstates (except for you hard core riders!). It's a great pure motorcycle experience as you really feel the bike and all around you. It gets a lot of looks!
I have only ~950 miles on it since the restoration, though there is some wear here and there.
She did win 2 second place trophies at the Virginia British motorcycle show...I kept getting beat by a guy with a drop dead gorgeous '68 Interceptor.
Feel free to ask all questions, and I can send more pics on demand. She is a great bike, and I hope to find an owner who will appreciate her and ride her. She likes to run.
