Surprise no footpeg!
« on: July 26, 2013, 03:36:05 PM »
Hello fellow Enfield riders. I have a rather simple problem that is becoming a nightmare. Purchased my Bullet 2 years ago in April. This season I just started to ride 3 weeks ago due to a bad ear infection. I got on the bike the other day and noticed that my right side passenger peg and bracket was missing. Vibration I would guess. But calling my dealer left me on hold until I had to hang up. They also were not very nice when I took the bike in last year for service. I have just reached 1000 miles and I'm not looking for a hand out from Enfield, just a dealer that will stay on the phone and act pleased to help me out instead of bothered. I live on Long Island, NY but I don't mind travel if the service is good. Thank you, Rob.

Hi, Reichel.

I can highly recommend the folks at Cycle City in Sloatsburg, NY... not too far from you (a nice ride!). (They're an RE dealer and service center.) The general manager (Andy Abbene) really takes care of folks!

LOOK ON EBAY, Be cool to find some vintage ones with RE logo on the rubber.   Become self sufficient unless impossible.
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

Go through the importer, might take a while though.

Thanks for all the responses. When the bolt went it took all with it bracket & peg. The worst is that the bracket ties the rear fender bracket to the bike.

Cycle City is the place to go in the Tri-State area. Dont mess with others, theres the best then theres the rest. Cycle City is the best. As far as new parts, have you looked at Hitchcocks online partsbook? Ive had a lot of lucks getting an odd assortment of parts on that site, fast and cheap shipping from the UK also

I have mine in a box in the garage. They are yours for the asking. I'll never use them.

While we have many good dealers we get really good reports about Cycle City

Thank you Desi Bike for the offer. I did purchase from Hitchcocks or I would have taken you up on them.
