A short trip in Kerala...UK rider
« on: November 13, 2014, 06:57:07 AM »
I decided to take a short break in India, 2 years ago I did a trip from Kerala to the factory in Chennai, but this time planned on staying in Mumbai but after 3 nights decided that Mumbai was not the place for me, I took a flight down to Kerala where I spent a number of days stocking up on C5 spares (sprag clutches!). I rented a bike, a 350 UCE Twinspark carb model, although it was looking a bit rough and tread on the tyres appeared to be an optional extra which this bike was lacking, and surprisingly with 40.000kms on the clock turned out to be a smooth sweet ride, and I intended to enjoy the few days I had it........suicidal Indian drivers permitting! Hear are a few pis of the trip.

What's the story with this model?  It's obviously a UCE, a 350, you said, but it doesn't match the frame of the Bullet 350 shown on the RE site.  Almost like a C5 but with a B5's deeply-stepped seat...

To be honest, I never really took much notice but the rental guy also has a mechanics shop where there is a vast assortment of 'mix n match' machines, pretty sure this is a Indian standard model.
