The clutch case cover has been painted, changed the oil too in the clutch casing. Initial plan was matt black, but its now a "little" shiny.


Brake pedal and other brackets have also been painted black.

The sticker job on the front mudguard was lacquer coated to protect it. The gap between the mudguard and the tyre is barely a centimeter.

Hey Gordon

Happy New Year and some very nice work.

You may want to go up a couple of sizes on your main jet with your air filter and silencer set-up. Also, the fork gaiter may have perforations which should be at the back otherwise you may find a lot of water and junk entering the boots.

How are your rear sets and gear change mods working out? Would love to have rearsets on my Enfield!

Best

I'd already increased the main jet to 110 when I installed the Goldstar. Do you think I'll need to upjet again?!

Rearsets are done sometime back. Work perfectly. Never had any problems with it. Rear brake was always weak even after changing the brake shoes and liner. No idea why.

Thank you very much Busa. The filter costs Rs 380 and its very easy to install.

Rear seat cowl is still pending. We may probably be fabricating another seat by ourselves.

Does anyone know from where do I get logos made? I've heard there are two alternatives: screen printing or radium stickers.

Damn this project is getting very pricey. But to perfect use.

Café Racer Project is almost reaching its completion

Is this HP avalible for other four-stroke bikes, in the 150cc range? What would be the price?

If it's for a carb like the Mikuni BS series fond on Pulsar's and Fieros then ths filter would fit perfectly.

The price is a bit on the higher side in Bangalore at around 650 bucks.

You get two types of HP one with the cotton mesh and one full steel mesh which is not advisable for dusty conditions.

For the Enfield this filter is a bit small. I have had this filter on my bike previously, but now i'm using a bigger Green Cotton filter. A bigger filter is always good for any bike because it kind of acts like an airbox.

Awesome creation Gordon. You have really looked into the finer details while modding this machine. I own a 350cc Enfield which is completely stock except for a front disc installed that was ripped off a sports bike , As bullets back then didnt come with disc brakes.This thread reminds me of those early morning cruises to college; Inspirational!

Thanks Ali. Can you post pics of your bike too.

More updates :
The Goldstar seat will be retained. We have got another seat base and would start work on the same tomorrow. It would be a removable cowl fitted by two bolts on either sides. If theres not much tinkering done on the cowl, it will be chromed else.....a good paint job.

Looks like the Vardenchi cafe racer didn't work out well.. The rearsets and handlebars are back to stock. Bike is still in pathetic condition.
Its repainted to yellow.



Now for the update on my bike. The seat cowl is shaping up well. I'll post new pics of the complete bike soon.

A major update : The cowl is almost ready. Have to just get the foam and seat cover done. Should be ready within a week or 2.

Wonderful pictorial!
nice mods on it. few people have the idea & fore sight , few have patience, few who care keen about putting their idea's to action. very few who who actually follow up and do it.

Great work Gordon.
This is by the far the best looking Bullet I've ever seen.

Cheers
