Can someone confirm what I have?
« on: April 19, 2014, 11:51:29 PM »
So, I'm starting to unravel the mystery that is my Enfield, but I'm really confused by what I have here.  So, I'm reaching out to the community to see if you can help me solve it. 

I have an Enfield Bullet, titled as a 1961.  It came from a a guy that purchased it while he was in India and had it shipped back when he left along with tons of spares.  This was sometime around 1998.  The bike is a kickstart only, 4-speed, with right-side shift.  Speedo is in KM's. 

It is equipped with square leather saddlebags, large leather tractor seat, small leather pillion seat, and a very wide tank.  However, the front end is setup as a disk brake and electronics are 12v.  Of course it is a points system and it does have turnsignals.

So anyone know what I have here?  Is this really a 1961 that has been rebuilt with a few modern upgrades?
