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.

Job done

Had 2 days off went to a dog show at the NEC , so today i went up to work to have a few hours on the trailer.
I got some mudguards off Ebay but they were not there so i finished off a bit welding and capped a few holes in the box section and laid on some primer....now what colour to do it????
Well it had to be "Bills Bullet" black silver and alloy!!
And this is it bizzy drying and waiting for my mudguards to arrive.
I will need the trailer to take it to the DVLA to say it has been changed back into a bike from a trike plus it is going to be handy for weekends away in the Lakes,fill the jeep full of camping gear and have the bike on the back.

OK for my next trick?
