The bike kinda builds itself,
all I do is put it together.

The Hitchcock Rigid Conversion

Mission Statement

This blog has been set up as a record of my attempt to build a cool Bobber style bike out of the Royal Enfield Bullet. With the cost of genuine early British and American bikes and parts spiralling upwards in the face of the current global economic climate, building a retro style custom is rapidly becoming cost prohibitive. Initially, there will be a period of accruing parts and information as the bike I intend to re-create is my daily rider.
I have heard so many horror stories about the Indian made Bullet from people who's mate used to have one, that I have lost count. All I can say is that I have covered over 20,000 miles on mine in the last three and a half years, and feel happy that it is quite capable of doing another 20.
So if you like the idea or just curious, you are welcome to come along for the ride.

This blog has been started as a side project to the British Ironworks site. Concentrating primarily on the Royal Enfield Bullet and the attempts to turn it into a cool custom ride.


  1. Oi!
    It's good to see a site dedicated to this Bulletering business. Mine is currently at this stage, and likely to change agan soon:

  2. Right oh Pete me old mate, it looks like we'll have to get this puppy airborne by ourselves mate.

  3. That's the way it's heading... who else on the DB has a Bullet? Once we show 'em the way, they'll all want one.

  4. there's a bullet out there with my name on it hahaha .... i'll have one again one day just cos i love singles... and its a well proven single

  5. And there's one in my back garden that SHOULD have my name on it, only some dickhead at DVLA is giving me grief. I'm going to their Wimbledon office to kick some ass.
