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.

My gaffa is a big fan of Orange County Choppers,he said to me today Pauly would have the primary on by now,so to days job was to stick it on for him!!

Had a bit polish of the case as well and drained the oil out,i will get all the messy bits out of the way before i start bolting on the shiny stuff.Went around with my wee paint brush painting all the nuts under the bike black and a 2 touch ups were i scratched the engine.I was a bit worried how ruff the motor looked being black as the castings are very lumpy,but as bits go on you can not realy see much of the motor anyways.
Front end looks nice and simple even with the "i switch everything" switch.Need to find a home for the hooter.
