Restoration!!!!  >:(

Bugger off!

Everyone either has a shiny new or shine old Enfield. Mines unique! No on we else has one with such character! It's a one owner from new 33 year old bike who else can say that?

I love Huge Bladders bike - and I love mine too! I was at the Ace Cafe today. There was a load of "Adventure" bikes there. Whilst many were the genuine article many were wannabe tourers. You know, the type that own a Rolex divers watch but never seen the sea!

Restoration by replacement is NOT the way to go for me.

Here is my military 350 (genuine), please note the top of the toolbox where there is provision for a padlock, also the shape of the rear mudguard carrier at the bottom where it kinks past the rear shock. If it aint got these features then it aint Indian military.

Good catch, definately need to fix that swingarm mount, What year did they start using the twin leading shoe front brake? my '94 came from India with a SLS....

Mine had a full width hub, 1/2 width 6" single leading shoe setup, I have since converted to the 7" TLS design that I though came out in 2002, but notice that his '80's 350 has them

I don't know when the home market started using the 7" TLS design but all the ones imported into the US starting in 95 had it.

Oh and half width rear too.

I do have a lightened mudguard( although they are the deep i.e. very heavy ones!):

Nothing like a few lightning holes to increase performance, I say. :D

All RE's that were legitimately imported into the US use the Twin LS brake
