 Not mine. Saw this and as it has only delivery mileage, I thought someone might be interested...

No wonder we no longer have a motor industry

Looks like one of the last Indian home market classic (I.B.) Bullets now located in the UK. Maybe repost this in the iron barrel section?

As per Adrian II's suggestion, I went ahead and punted this topic over to this Iron Barrel section.

That ain't such a bad looking "Iron Belly" if any of our UK members, especially any "Geordies" up in the Northeast, might be looking to experience the wonders and virtues of going all "Primitivo" like me.

I see a couple of minor dings, such as in the headlamp bezel (easily replaced for less than the cost of a pack of that Newcastle Ale), and my "spidey sense" would be on alert because of the whole "Grey Market" importation thing, though the auction text claims that it's been at least partially sorted legally with a "NOVA" (as described here: https://www.gov.uk/importing-vehicles-into-the-uk/telling-hmrc) as well as the bike being MoT'd. But it IS for charity...So, that's what you tell the wife.

So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

(Legal enough to pass muster if they don't look too closely in Woodbridge, Virginia, where the buses don't run at night, holidays or weekends and I'm a contender for 'Village Idiot')

I sa that bike on eBay but there was an issue with the registration documents, there were a couple of dings it got while being transported but they could easily and cheaply be repaired, quite a rear find.
