I agree, but some the parts could get fairly expensive. There is a fair amount of grunt labor in doing it with a lot of cutting and grinding involved
Depends on what kind of tooling you have to do a lot of the work. A tank and seat would need to be highly modified. The rest of it can be done fairly easily.
I would like to change the wheels to 18" and 21". I could have Buchanan's cut spokes and I could do the lacing, for instance. Or I could buy the spoke rollers and do it all myself. So you makes your choice and pays your money!

I don't think so. Lots of pics on their blog of them riding the sh#t out of their machines.

The picture where he's airborne over the slope is all wrong. He's too far back to have launched off that slope and there's nothing behind him that resembles and launch ramp. Frankly, I doubt highly that an Enfield jumped that high would survive the landing!

Just my opinion but from what I've read their solo version handles like the truck it is.
It was built heavy for handling a side car and that weight is still there even without the hack attached.

IMO, about the only thing it has in common with the Royal Enfield is its old fashioned design.

You are thinking of the original solo. The Ural sT solo is priced at $7799, hand built, weighs only 30 lbs more than the Enfield and handles pretty well. Think eighties BMW boxer, add cdi and dual discs, a 2 year unlimited transferrable warranty
Halfway down the page are comparison specs with several bikes.

Hey BRW. Hope you've been well. You been riding?

I couldn't help but notice all those bikes (Urals and Triumphs) listed the gas as 91 octane.

Haven't been riding the Enfield at all since the skidmasters bit me.
The Ural specs 91 octane to pass EPA emissions to import into the USA. They run fine off 87.
