New to RE.
2012 Classic with 3000 miles and Cozy. Sold my 2015 Ural last fall and am looking for a lighter rig. Don't need to go fast. Anything I should look for on the rig?

Not too much to worry about on the sidecar. Just make sure it has a good sturdy 4 point attachment. We make a good Royal Enfield specific mounting kit which most likely is what was used. Suspension rubbers etc. are easy to replace.

Are the tall handlebars stock? Also it has a automotive ignition coil.
Two more photos.
Thanks.

Bought her today.
Took her for a spin and she seems to run just fine.
Love the long stroke sound. Proper.

The seller included the stock handlebars and  controls so I will install them. Don't like the mini apes.

Previous owner had installed a none correct speedometer. I bought a correct one on Ebay.

Installed the stock handlebars that were included in the sale. Also a good time to lub the dry cables.
Looks much more proper. Previous owner was a Harley owner that took good care of the rig.
