Is that show making it to the west coast any time soon?  Or is it the one that already passed through in December?  I've realized I may not get to many any more as they're usually the same weekend as my new son's birthday.

I'll take a gray one please, something that looks a little like this would be fine.    .

The grey is really nice and speaks of class...Maybe we will see that color in the future on the new interceptor (we really going wild with that story)...

I might add an order of wide whitewalls to that gray one.

Looks like the Classic Chrome doesn't have the matching painted frame, too bad.

That's probably more period correct but a bummer.  On the bright side, you don't need to do a full tear down to change the color.

Some colors look good with a color matched frame, some look good either way.  I think the teal looks great with a teal frame.  Red looks great with a black frame, White looks really good either way.

Gee - That little bike is the berries! I had to look two or three times to determine whether it was a new one or an old one! The styling is absolutely timeless on the Enfields - the only thing that REALLY gave that one away was little Lucas Mag-Dyno perched behind the cylinder ....... and LOVE that colour!

So we actually see the Electra passing away - the new Bullet has the looks of the iron barrel.
Glad to see triangular boxes - I hope that can be fit to mine  8)

Not so fast, Maturin! The Electra chassis has been proven to be "Bullet tough" and will probably be around for a while. The basic Bullet is just icing on the cake when we get it! You'll have the Bullet, the Electra Classic G5 and the Electra Deluxe G5 as well as the Classic 500 C5 and the Deluxe 500 C5 as well as the Military C5 to choose from! There will truly be something for everyone at that point .....  ;)

The "basic" Bullet will be $5495 in the USA?  Wow, that's $1k less than the C5.  What has been changed or cheapened or left off to make that happen?
