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.

Rub A Dub Dub

Not a lot to show today,the time has been spent removing the paint from the frame ready to pop the engine back in and wheels to sort out all the little brackets and holes.
i am not putting the two down tubes on so i made this plate to go in,ties the new frame with the old and a handy place to mount battery etc.
I did have a bit spare time today so i made this engine bare to replace the adj one on the bike,nice lump of S/S with the same centres as the one that came off so it should fit with the engine back in
