Excellent work Avandr.  The same joy they felt in 1950 lives on in essence today.  Cruising through the Universe on a long stroke single.

JVS, not sure if it is J2? all I know is my father in law & his brother both purchased one each, brand new here in Melbourne Australia.

Hey avandr , I am also in Melbourne. Let me know if you ever want a riding buddy. Two Enfields are better than one. I promise to behave myself.  :D

Thanks for post the pics, avandr!
I took special note of the tank decal. Definitely justifies it on the C5. I initially didn't like it, thinking it was out of place on a retro bike, but now I stand corrected.  ;D
Rather than have a homeless person for the holidays, I decided to stick with ham.
