has anyone here ever thought much about doing a custom bike using an enfield bullet? or seen any around? Reason I ask is that when you think about it the indian ones are usually quite cheap to buy and it's already got that classic look.

First bike I took apart was a 250 Enfield. Never managed to put it back together of course. Should have taken that as a lesson. My new boss has one of the older bullets and I work for an Indian company so I should be able to get cheap parts sent over if anyone is interested.

yeah Scotty that is just freakin sweet, the motors have that classic look, & sound alright too (albeit a bit slow), but I think there should be more of these
