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.

Rear guard

Not much time today so only a few jobs done.Brake pedal needed a s/s spacer and a s/s spacer for the brake/silencer mount were made and fitted and i decided to bolt the rear guard on.

With me not using a front guard i had cables flopping around in the wind and 2 unused guard fixing points,i was going to chop them off but not sure of the internals of the forks i decided to use them for a bar to hold the cables and fill the 2 holes up.Up on the yoke the clutch and brake cables were flopping around so a couple of s/s P clips tied them up.On the other side of the fork is a smaller bar to hold the tax disc and fill the other 2 holes up.
