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.

More stop

I have been putting off doing the rear brake cos i new it was going to be a pain in the ass.The enfield is on near side and the jap wheel is on off side...My mate sent me up some old hand brake cables to mess with,tossed a few ideas about but what ever it was going to look a mess so ive gone for a rod.How am i going to get it over other side?lever on top or bottom?how do i lock the drum up?
The bar in the top of the pik is my lock bar,i like the look of this this very light bobber look.
I am going to put the brake drum lever on top like the old british bike look.
The bar on the bottom pik is how i am going to get it across the frame and the lever is connected to the rear arm,This is going to bolt to the frame as i am going to weld the foot lever and the brake lever in place for safety,plus it a nightmare machining splines
Better work and look clean after all this
