Description: Currently restoring, only 759 of these made. I waited 39 years to own one of these. I cleaned carbs, new plugs, new points , new battery and replaced mufflers with the correct ones. Kicked her about 10 times and she came to life. Still need to re chrome fenders, tank and bars, and restuff and cover seat. I have put 3000 miles on her with no problem. It now has 14,000 miles and runs strong.

October 26, 2008, 12:00:00 amSharp Interceptor--chrome tank, fork gaiters, and a beefy front tire (3.50?). Now that I am tiring of the skinny front , fat rear tire look of the Harleys (although I own one), I can again appreciate those classic British lines. Good job!!
I just picked it up a few days ago, gimme time :-D

I had a '68 750 Interceptor when I was in the army back in '70-'71 in Fairbanks Alaska. looked Identical to yours except it had a red stripe down the center of the tank. I bought it for $1000 and sold it a year later. I had fried the electrical system and was in a hurry to get rid of it because I was getting out of the army so I let it go for $500, definately not one of my smarter decisions.
I was young and had just bought a Kawasaki 500 triple from a local dealer up there so I needed to get rid of the Enfield, I got out of the army in Ft Lewis Washington then flew to LA to pick it up at the kawasaki distribution center in Santa Ana California. (That's another story, riding a 2 stroke triple from California to Texas)
I just picked up a '57 Indian Apache 700cc basket case(Enfield exactly like the 750 motor/trans ) and hope to get it running over the winter.
Looks like you're almost there, good luck and happy riding. Richard Miller
