|It's a Royal Enfield Bullet. But look closer.|
"Selling a 1989 Royal Enfield," the seller wrote. "Don't know much about it. In good shape. Run last summer. Sold with title but title has bike's year listed as 1959."

I think the Royal Enfield in the ad is a Superstar, a 350cc model briefly produced for the Indian market and never officially exported to the United States.

Enfields were not officially imported into the U.S. in modern times until 1995. Thus this motorcycle has to be a private import. Its date of manufacture may have been given as 1959 to dodge import or registration regulations.
|Instrument pod is attractive, has the light switch at center.|
|Ignition switch is in the right-hand toolbox.|
|Unusual look for a Bullet; lots of chrome.|
