Welcome to 1955!

I am in the process of buying this beautiful 2004 Royal Enfield Bullet 500ES in British Racing Green. The bike only has 234 miles on the counter and was used as a display piece in the owner's home.

What's great about these motorcycles is that they retain their 60+ year old European style even though they're now manufactured in Chennai, India. Don't break what ain't broken. It has both traditional kickstart and modern electric start, and there are a ton of aftermarket accessories available.

There is a pretty dedicated fan base out there too for Enfield enthusiasts and I plan to become one of them.

The cruddy iPhone photos don't do it justice.

More to come as this project unfolds...
