My C5 Project
« on: April 02, 2013, 08:52:35 AM »
Greetings from down under, I have being visiting the Royal Enfield U.S forum for three years now , and have enjoyed reading all the information and advice that everyone posts , thankyou to all, I can not believe the passion people around the world have for Royal Enfield.
Three years ago, I was looking for a new bike but wanted something different,old looking,but with new technology.
Looked up British Bikes and wandered into the local British Bike Shop in my town, and there she was,I fell in love the first time I saw her my new 2010 C5 Bullet in Black.
I just needed to change a few things to make her mind, I am nearly there ,yet to replace  the front sprocket to 19t and change the chain, will replace the tyres later, and wait for ACE to do their thing, I hope you all like what I have done.

Welcome to the forum buddy! Great looking C5 you got there  :D Queensland eh, NSW represent here!  ;D This is a very helpful forum with great people, I'm sure you know this already sicne you've been browsing for 3 yrs  ;)

By the way, I really like that swing arm pivot cap you have with the RE logo. Where did you source that from?

Thanks JVS,
You are right about the US forum, you get to see and read what the rest of the world is doing, sometimes you feel like nothing is happening  down here in Oz.
The pivot cap is a fuel cap badge from Hitchcock's in the UK, I've got a few more photos to up load.

  That bike is Nice !   Love the low bars and the hair pin springs on the seat.  Also how the seat and luggage rack have the same angle up..... well done.

Hey, the bike looks great. Like the seat. Also like the rear rack. Did you get it from enfield or somewhere else?

woudn't mint trying one of those seats. was it a direct fit and the price. had one of the racks -it looks the part too.
any problems wiring up your indicators. i've had a set of those for 6 months -still in the box. i might do it some time

Hi kammer, Thanks, the rear rack is an Enfield stock item, from my dealer.

Hi Wildbill, I Had the seat custom made, everything I looked at in life I did not like, its hard to image a seat on a web site, so I had a local guy make it, had to make some L brackets so the seat that came with the bike, can be put back on, I never liked the back light it just looked wrong, the small bullet lights I think look the part , drilling was the hardest part used all the same wiring.
