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.

Few more bits

Got the stops welded in place and the two holes for the battery clamp,this wont move about now.
brake cable in place.
Hidden nicely with the silencer.

The foot side of the brake welded in place just need to make a lever now.
Was not sure how to fix the silencer,did not want more brakets welding to the frame so i made a small bar the same as the torsion bar for the brake and used the same lug to mount it,Turned out quite good as you can not see it.
And there we go all just about hidden.
