Blast from the past

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on January 5, 2006


Inspired by Philip’s post on 4 Drivers Only about the Morgan 4/4, which has been in continuous production since 1936, I felt compelled to write about my favorite motorcycle – the Royal Enfield Bullet.

This motorcycle was built by the British company Royal Enfield. At some point in the 1950s, the Indian government bought the rights to open a factory to build the bikes locally for their armed forces. The British Royal Enfield company went out of business, but the factory in India is still churning out motorcycles remarkably unchanged from the 1955 model. The bike pictured is a 2005 model, available for $4795 in the US.

One day . . .
