Finally, someone who knows!! Thanks, I could not tell if it was a clever one-off or what. It seems to  have an Iron fitting and brazed tube frame, and I was wondering when that method of building a frame came to an end. Thanks for the great links.

You saw a 1000 cc Bullet at the National Rally at Stow on the Wold in 2005. It's actually a Bullet frame with a 1000 cc model K sidevalve engine and the standard Bullet gearbox. The model K was manufactured between 1930 and 1939. The last two years with an even bigger engine, model KX 1140cc.
The original model K was supplied with three hand shifted gears. Another example of a model K engine in a Bullet frame is on Royal Enfield Motorcycles Photographs at the REOC rally 2007 Kelling Heath (http://home.casema.nl/royalenfield/REOC/National%20Rally%202007%20Kelling%20Heath/slides/PICT3252%201955%20model%20K%20Phoenix.html).
The owner also has a genuine 1931 model K, but this is easier on his back (with the suspension). This one is registrated in the UK as a (1955?) Bullet 1000.
