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.

Seat Double Whammy.....

Ordered up this seat for the Marauder yesterday, it's a bit of a two way deal really. Gets the Marauder back on the road where it belongs and gives me the chance to offer it up on the 350. Going by the picture it appears that the front bracket is bolted on, and therefore adaptable, certainly don't want the nose cocked up in the air like that. Covered in leather and 65 notes it can't be bad, although it does beg the question, if it's made in India where does the leather come from? surely not a cow.
