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.
