Seeing if I can generate some interest from the Texas folks riding Enfields. The end of September is the TXABCD (Texas All British Car Day) in Round Rock, Tx. (The official website is www.txabcd.org and has the details and registration information. They don't yet have a "British Motorcycle" judging class, but I have contacted the main organizer and he is going to see what the committee says. I know they would definitely appreciate at least a few on display at the show part on Sunday.If interested, post here or send me a PM or email (mplayle13 -at- gmail -dot- com) so I can pass along a count of interested folks for maybe getting a judging class formed.Cheers,M.

The static show part of the event is on Sunday, September 29. They do a rally o Saturday afternoon.I know they (and I) would appreciate several for at least display. I have not heard whether it is too late to get a judging class created. I may suggest their "Special Interest" class as an option.Please do bring it and take a "moving break" on Sunday and come to the show.

I fear the reason it is a basket case is because I was riding and maintaining it like a jap bike, not like a fragile egg.
Bump - to maintain some awareness.
Well, unless you lost half the parts riding down the road and blew your connecting rod thru the case, I think you'll be in pretty good shape. Even with a blown motor, it will not be terribly expensive OR difficult to rebuild your Enfield. Time, patience and money is all you need. Oh! And a little help from this forum. Yup, time and money is what it will take. Seems every part I remove leads to a new problem. I'd rather not trailer it anywhere while it's in pieces.Scottie
Couldn't make the event in Round Rock but did attend the Harvest Moon Classic in Luckenbach. Lots of nice old bikes there, saw this beauty and talked with rvcycleguy for a bit, also saw a chrome C5 (black) there but didn't get to talk with the owner. Hoping to be there next year.
