I've posted a few questions on this forum, but I thought it might be better to keep them in one topic. I hope you guys don't mind.I bought a 350 Bullet a few months back. In parts. It's a '76 Indian Enfield.I've been customizing quite a few bikes in the last couple of years, all low budget, the Enfield is no exception on the low budget. The plan was (is) a minimalistic all-roader/scrambler/trial-like bike.I traded a back wheel that came with teh bike for yokes without an integrated headlight and welded my own exhaust (made out of BMW headers, a gravy bowl, a thermos and a salad bowl. ow budget, remember?)A pancake filter was also included in the trade and I bought some aluminum fenders. I made my own wiring harness. I bought an old seat on a swap meet. The handle bars were some bars I just happened to have and they looked and felt right.That was my second test ride.I later made some struts for the front fender and installed it.Today I had my fourth test ride. I spend most of it off road and that's a completely new experience for me, so you can laugh at my style all you want http://youtu.be/BGFGHMkaSmoI'll especially have to practice my water crossings..... But I am improving:http://youtu.be/VoEzQbfZdZYI'm having a few problems with the bike, nothing major, but maybe some of you guys can shed some light on them:- The bike seems to spit quite a bit of oil out of the crank breather. Worn cylinder? Normal?- The bike is pretty hard to get in first gear and sometimes it jumps out of first gear,- The bike, when warm, tends to spit in the carburetor when you twist the throttle when the bike is idling.
Very nice what are you using for ignition? ERC
Forgot to add put a Podtronic regulator on it. Comes with a wiring diagram. ERC
The pics ! the videos !! WOW !!! It's like a trip back to the late 70's for me !!They're fantastic. I hope you don't mind if I add them to my slide show. Your build is spot on authentic and matches exactly what we were up to in my neighborhood back then. The riding style and terrain are a match as well.Beers to you Sir !
