Royal Enfield Military gets neat café look

Clever fellow! Hard as it is to imagine, an owner has outfitted his 1999 Royal Enfield Military motorcycle in semi-café style. It's quite attractive, actually. And it's for sale now, on CraigsList, in Moline, Ill. for $2,800. The owner is even throwing in a café-style helmet (olive drab, naturally!) and two pairs of goggles, one of them genuine antique.

The motorcycle has 3,704 miles and is in Chicago, Ill. The owner says he is willing to consider trading for a Volvo station wagon or other car.

The seller lists a host of mechanical and cosmetic upgrades to the café-style Military. You can have the original panniers it came with, if you want. But it's the unusual combination of styles that surprises. The café handlebars and single rear-view mirror are probably worth a good 5 mph at the top end, too.
