Sadly not on the ape she's still broken so took the opportunity to deliver my old mans bullet back to north Norfolk after storing it for him over the winter. 50mph all the way but i thoroughly enjoyed it great fun to ride but totally messed my head up the gears are on the right and reverse shift

Oh and the brakes.....jesus there comical just as well
shes slow
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Not that old it's a 2003 model but the last of the cast blocks before they changed to an aluminium head so more desirable. The whole bike hasn't changed since the 50's.

I have to admit to a bit of a soft spot for ye olde Royal Oilfield, quite fancy doing one in trials trim for the odd classic twin shock trial.

My ex boss had a trials version he was thinking of selling late last year,don't know if he's still got it now though,he had a large and varied bike collection and Enfield never got much use.
