|Standard Royal Enfield Bullet is improved by subtle upgrades.|
Literally. It has only 50 miles on the odometer. The seller says he bought it only for display, kept it in his climate controlled home museum, and rode it only three times.
But that's not why I consider it "perfect." To my eye, this Bullet has been tastefully modified in ways I might have done myself, if I'd wanted to spend the money. The seller listed the changes made:
- K&N air filter
- Duck bill breather
- Relocated horn
- Chrome brake rod w/nut.
- Chrome chain adjusters
- Chrome rear wheel spacers
- Chrome rear wheel hub cover
- Bar-end mirrors
- 350 front fender and fender stays
- Re-jetted carb
- Big tri-bar headlight and mounting ring
- Removed turn indicators
- Solo riding seat
- Re-mounted electronics out of sight
- More open muffler
- Removed rear pegs
He doesn't even mention the tomb stone tail light fitted. While my own Bullet has the solo seat, I never got around to removing the passenger pegs. This man did, and it's a nice touch.
|Clean look, but visible air filter looks too modern to my eyes.|
Note that although the electrics were relocated, the battery box remains, so there is no "see-through frame" effect anyway — so nothing would be lost by putting that K&N in the original air filter box.
|Fuller 350 model front fender looks better than version on 500.|
|Big headlight looks great.|
Relocated horn is neat but why does it face down?
