eBay seller shows off Royal Enfield for sale

A 2006 Royal Enfield Bullet for sale on eBay is the subject of an especially fine series of photos by the seller. Even the obligatory photo of the casquette, to show the mileage, is a work of art. In fact, the visual tribute to the motorcycle is so striking, you wonder how he can bear to part with it. I've prepared a slideshow here but the originals in the eBay ad are well worth seeing full size.

The motorcycle is for sale in Westland, Mich, with a Buy It Now price of $3,750. It has 3,578 miles and needs a chain. Thereby, one suspects, lies a tale.

The seller writes:

"Last Summer, the chain broke when I was about to leave for a ride and I never replaced it. The bike is in great shape, it just needs a new chain and I won't get around to it. I am selling the bike because I can't afford to keep it any longer. There is a lien on it and I need to pay it off (upon selling it).

"I have a one-year-old daughter and I need all the money I can save. I did some upgrades, like tan leather seat, turn signals front and back, side mirror, vintage tail light, as well as a Triumph-style heat sink around the exhaust pipe near the motor.

"I do not have the original long seat. I never liked it and had no reason to keep it. I don't ride any longer and I need to sell it.



Some lucky person certainly will, I am sure.
