Don't know if it's real or not, but it's pretty cool.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

No, it's an artist's rendering.

Some of the things are derived from real parts that can be bought for the Bullet, or Electra models.
For example, that exhaust system(almost identical) is available for the Electra, but I don't think they make one like that for the UCE yet. But the Electra version exhaust is just like that, with similar(not exactly the same) basic bends, and going thru the left side toolbox just like that, with the same muffler and bracket. Woodsman II exhaust, I think they call it.
The front fender is available from Watsonian, on the trials kit.
The tank is a standard tank, with a custom paint job, and a stick-on knee pad set.
The seat is the traditional Bullet English dual-seat, and is available. The taillight set-up is available.

What's not available is the rear disc brake package, and the separate headlight system with twin clocks housed on top. Those are fictional.

You could actually make a bike very much like that, using an Electra, and having the paint job custom done.
Perhaps some of that same type aftermarket stuff might become available for the UCE over time.

This 'thing" seems to be a mix of RE UCE and a Triumph Scrambler.

In my opinion the black hole of the gear head internet..  I can get in there and start scanning just one thread and go for hours..  Its amazing all the content over there...Too many BMWs for my taste though.

Lots of good gear chat and the "FacePlant" section is always a good read.

I agree though, too many BMW owners for my taste and not enough Enfield folk  ;)

There has been a few Enfield threads, and you often come across the anti Enfield sentiment because someone knew someone whose neighbor's postmans son had an Enfield back in '92 and it was crap.

I have, and a few others on here, have tried to put them straight. Free sign up, and a chance to set the record straight.
