I'm currently preparing to get my motorcycle license and am seriously considering the Electra for its simplicity and efficiency. I'm satisfied that carburator and exhaust upgrades, plus a 19 tooth sprocket will improve the performance without sacrificing too many miles per gallon.
Aha! I just found an Electra on the royalenfield Yahoo! group that has the old toolboxes, fenders with stays (chrome), as well as the old fork sleeves instead of rubber gaiters. It even has the 60s kneepads that I want to put on the red model.You can join or log into the group (groups.yahoo.com) and go to the following link to see it (didn't want to post a pic of someone else's bike without permission).http://autos.ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/royalenfield/photos/view/b49e?b=1&m=f&o=0I've sent the owner a message to ask how it was done.Can anyone from CMW / RE tell us whether it's possible to order fenders painted with the OEM colors? Do you do pinstriping too? I'd even consider putting 350 fenders on it if they're available in red.Thanks,Jeff
