Sounds like a drag race in the making... Lol

Take videos for us proles to oogle.

I just checked into this thread again, and
WOW,
you guys really did a lot of work on this thing.
It not only has the looks, but it has the "GO" to go along with it!

Congratulations on a real nice result!

When we finally get our B5 done, maybe you and Chumma can go out and wake up some sleepy suburban NJ towns some week-end with some Royal Enfield UCE Thunder!

    Well thank you Tom.  I'm sure you can appreciate the amount of work that goes into these projects.   And sleepy Suburban NJ towns !? ......Are there any left?  ;)   Oh..... that's right !  Way out to the south and west of here ! LOL ! As a matter of fact I think that would be great fun, riding with Chumma. Setting of Car alarms and cracking windshields..... from the sound.....
 I can imagine the confusion, on the harley types faces.... as the bikes come down the street.  "A double lung Sporty drag bike..perhaps"    He...he..he..  NO !

   And give my regards to Chumma, It would be nice to bump into him again. I am on the west side of Elizabeth. And if he is ever in the neighborhood, he is certainly welcome to stop by. But warn him, if he should bring the Fireball. To lay off the throttle some, as he comes down the street...... I think maybe, the town has a cop car stationed down the corner...... You know. 8)

Someone posted a spy shot last month at the TU250 site!  I was wondering who had built this Bullet! http://tu250riders.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1032&start=150

   We particularly got a kick out of this one GSS.   COFFEE WALLACE !?   LOL!

 And of course...... my brother and his band mates had some fun with it !

Thanks for the kudo. I was doin' what I do best on the bike - TUNE! I figgered that the budget approach was the best - hence all the stock hardware - and the sweat equity. I've always done it that way - I've never had a pile of resources - but I've always to squeeze the stock stuff and make it a little better. Just remember - parts is parts ..... until you add the LOVE! Hahaha!

GHG,
This is brilliant! You have the most famous and most pirated C5 photos in the universe!

ScooterBob,
Maybe I can get you to dress up in "proper" riding gear for a photoshoot on my bike!

ScooterBob & GHG,

This is truly a beautiful machine, visually and mechanically.  The best looking Royal Enfield café concept I've seen to date.  I like it!

Royal Enfield people are good people

Cheers,
Bill

If by "proper", you mean the old racing leathers and my "good" helmet - I'm all for it!! Hahaha! I haven't worn a kilt in years and I'm horrible on the bagpipe .... although I can make a dog howl with one! Hahaha!

Bill - I gotta give all the kudos to the Gorilla for his OUTSTANDING construction, fabrication and painting skillz. I just engineered a couple of engine parts for him and had a few ideas.

BTW - I gotta add this. Use someone with a good dyno that knows how to use it. Our original results were skewed to the "fantastic" level by a goon running a dyno at the local Harley-Davis joint.  :'( So every Sportster that's ever been on THAT dyno is probably 200 horsepower.  ::) Harley horses are obviously smaller, so you get more of them into an engine, I think. Anyhoo - the current rear wheel power on the dyno is correct, I believe. Not as big a number as before - but Foe Rill .... and quite impressive to ME with just a little tuning!

I also gotta thank the Gashouse Gorilla for being the Crash Test Dummy for all my parts! You'ze Da MAN!! (in best Jersey accent!)  ;)

I just spent a GREAT afternoon with GSS and his lovely daughter. It was a fun meeting, but we both agreed it needs to be just a tad warmer to ride! GHG - he sends his regards YOUR way as well!
