CRTV Team,
"I wish I could say I did all the modifications to the bike myself, but a lot of it was done before I.  By who, I don’t know.   It was a blurry photo of a dream in a craigslist ad at first.  Originally I had this relatively stock Royal Enfield, which I loved. I yearned to buy all the cool parts from the mail order catalog places that support us Enfield owners (e.g. http://www.hitchcocksmotorcycles.com/home).  The bike you see now was a 2 hour drive away from where I was living in San Diego, up in Torrance, but the price was right and it looked like it had some cool parts.  I took the trailer up there hoping it was really what it looked like in the photos and I was in luck.  I picked this one up for just a few hundred dollars more than I was able to sell my stock Enfield.  And the cool parts I wanted were all there:  dry clutch, gas shocks, electronic ignition, disc break, alloy tank, matching turn signals/fenders, café bars (of course), and even a cool crank case breather.  I suspect it also has an oversized head, but haven’t verified.  It sure sounds and feels like it. All I did was pick it up, dust off the parts, turn a few wrenches doing things like adjusting the dry clutch, painting the side covers black, and installing a glass fuel filter for old times sake.   I also installed a floor stand because it can be really hard to kick start without one!
What it is at the core, is an Indian built pre-unit Bullet 500 made in 2001 that I love!
Thanks!
