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.

What do you think........?

Peter pointed me to this 350 Bullet on the US Bay of Fools. Striking with the choice of colour, wouldn't ya say? Nice combination of parts, not much done at all really, but what has been done has been done with care and attention.

I reckon that's a Hitchcock's tank on there, all you need do is, stick a pair of Renthals on it, instant Flat-Bob, Brat Trakker, whatever. Nice, the more I look at it, it does show an instant access to the custom world for very little down and it is the basis for constant change and ya can still use it.

Like this, Hmm? belt drive ya say?
Don't know if the folding footrests are standard US issue, be handy if they are.
