November 06, 2007, 04:04:19 AMhi thanks for waking me up forgot to inform you guys. i took part with this bike inthe raid-de-himalaya and stood third at the end of day three after which it got called off due to snow. there were a lot of changes made to the bike after this picture was taken. the raid has a kind of reputation for breaking machines and men but mine performed brilliantly. but it was tough trying to wrestle a 200kg monster through tight mountain sections and to top it all i got sick just before the start but pulled through in time to celebrate at the PD they said you couldn't do it on an enfield. i let my silencer do the talking and it was singing a fine tune right till the end

August 15, 2007, 11:24:31 PMits a LB 500, the front and rear are from an late 80's CRF honda, the bike is still under development. and i'm still fine tuning the suspension set up. the fitment is relatively simple but not entirely easy. stability is fantastic but if youre talking tight winding tarmac then it needs some hustling, too heavy to jump but good enough to say "eat my dirt" to most other enfields when the going gets tough. engien has a lighter flywheel from the 350 balanced for use in a 500, a mikuni VM 34 jetted for the LB500 slightly higher compresssion, ports have been cleaned up and generally everythgin just put together properly. the stock gearing works fine. its worked in such a way that it can convert back to a stock bullet (i have the bullet frame not the electra frame - love the side boxes) in a couple of days. built the bike basically to take part in the raid - www.raid-de-himalaya.com lets see if it lasts
