Looking at the listings just for giggles...

Did you notice the size of that rear sprocket - talk about some low gearing!

I DID notice that .... It could be close to a trials bike with THAT gearing .... it's pretty cool overall, tho ..... A bottle of Turtle Wax and new Champion and you'd have a good one ....  ::)

The big head bullet was introduced in late 58 and sold as a 59 model. Since that bike is not a big head, I think it is pretty well safe to assume it is a 350 Bullet model. It's missing a lot of parts for sure.

If it is an older 500cc model it may be an Indian Woodsman or Westerner model  or an RE 500 Bullet that was left over after production of the big head started but from the condition it's hard to tell. The engine numbers would tell the true story.
