First Enfield- Excited

486 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Vecchio Lupo
Been in the bike thing since I graduated from mini bikes up to a 125cc in 1976. Had just about everything but got my first Enfield today. A 2011 Bullet 500 that's been sitting in a carport in Georgia for 7 years. Covered in rust and dust, all fluids nasty and rubber seals perished . I cat wait to start.

Hey @Vecchio Lupo welcome to the forum and congrats on getting your Bullet 500! What convinced you to go with it over other bikes? Were you looking for a project? Do you have any photos of it you can share?
Ive settled into Guzzi and BMW Airhead, and Honda mini bikes. Recently after trading a 96 Triumph Trident that I lovingly built for a rough but complete 77 R100 (the deal was lopsided but I believe the value of airheads is about to get incredibly stupid) I sold a 95 Triumph Daytona 1200 to finance the restoration of the R100. It's done and it is a Disco-liscicious 70s freeze frame. Vesco fairing, Mayer 2 tone saddle W/sissybar , luftmiester side tanks, samsonite 3 pc luggage, all in Havana Gold (aka Metallic Turd) . tripped over a Guzzi Convert in a garage , needed cash, went to sell my honda ct90 (I have an ST90 that is more fun) to drag home the goose, got offered this Bullet in trade from a fellow older than I who cannot operate clutch and foot shift anymore, Bullet sitting for 7 years with 6k miles, 100% stock unmolested, original owner, all documentation-trade for my little honda, he thinks he can manage that. I have a soft spot for orphans and I just really like the UCE EFI Bullet on paper, so I dove in the deep end.
