On the water
« on: March 10, 2011, 05:19:29 AM »
So, the two new RE's are on the way to Cali.
The G5 Deluxe in Black & Chrome and the Black Bullet aka Black Bike aka B5.
We have pre-ordered as of today.
Really looking forward to the Deluxe with it's " BSA Twin" chrome and black tank and chrome fenders.

The B5 will be a great platform for customs or conversions from mild to wild.
Maybe a bit less bling, but sexy and lean.
 :)

This is the B5, up top and the G5 Deluxe.
The Deluxe has been in the brochures and website but not available until now.

From what I have read, the B5 says it has the origonal Bullet 350 frame. If this is true, then with the little less bling should account for its lower price. Just my twisted opinion.
The B5 is going to be a great lower cost bike for students or married re-entry guys who want and need a great bike to save gas money with.  (lets get our stories straight, to tell our wives why we need another OR a motorcycle.)
Imagine telling the wife your saving her some money buy buying an RE to ride to work on so you can park the gas guzzling truck or SUV.
Also in limited numbers so dont mess around and agonize over it. They will SELL QUICKLY!

The "chromo"  C5 bike is available on SO only and in very limited quantities.

Kevin has this and more info posted in the RE community news section.

No, still the 500 single we have now.
The paint job is very much like the old A50 ansd A65 Beezers.
No twins here,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

the b-5 is a 350 with a UCE 500 cc engine. No new tools dies or jigs to make so it's $1000 less.

Newsletter from CMW a couple days ago says...

"We will be offering each dealer an allocation of these bikes so if you have an interest I would call your dealer now so they can get one for you." 

Get your money down... ;)
