Can someone help me in getting an Royal enfield 1962 model owners manual, and if possible picture of the bike please. I am planning to restore this bike to the core as per manufacturers specifications. I am in the process of collecting the parts, can any one help in getting a pair of Original tool boxes, badges, smiths meter.

I am sure that you can contact Saurabh at sans inc delhi for all this stuff. he may not have them original but very well built stuff.

Thanks folks!! I was searching/browsing for the picture of 62 model bike but unfortunately couldnt, now back to the restoration (cosmetics) I see a lot of bike enthusiasts now-a-days are interested in having their bikes look as per the older version with the look alike parts, i.e., seats, smiths milo meter, tank badges (brass), mudgaurds. I found 4-5 bikes with my mechanic which are 62-64 model look alike. My endeavour is to get my bike to 100% originality.

We gave her a complete makeover last week. My younger brother and myself we won Thunderbird. Both with #144.. his bike was blue in color as some construction work in going on there was some cement particles that were dropped on his bike and that reason was enough for him to give it a complete makeover.

Talking My 2007 Bullet Living in Ireland...

Well thought I would make this my first post. So you can see my DIY bodges and mods...

Its an almost standard Bullet, except with a re-jetted carb, short silencer and light rockers. There are other odd little quirks with it, of my own doing. Such as the re-located oil breather thing with its own air filter which you can see on the right. The copper thing on the carb is a water guard, I had a problem when water got on the K&N 'style' filter.... the copper thing was actualy a cheese shaker.

Notice the rather large exhaust finn.... It had broken finns and I got it cheep, altered it to fit around the PAV blanker bolt.

Black logo'less points cover is the standard chrome one filled and painted.

I made the leather right side tool bag from bits of two old boots and a bit from a leather jacket... I also have a tool roll I made from another two old boots and some old belts. I might upload a pic of that later. Oh and other bits of the boot made the battery strap...

Notice the DIY chain oiler on the left side? Made from old fuel line parts and an old pot in the tool box.

Handle bars are pattern ones for a Norton, higher and I think a few inches wider.

Lastly, the number plate and tail light holder was made from part of an old plastic bulk head from a van and part of an old spot light bracket.

Its at 7110 Klms since new and the only fault is that there was a factor installed helicoil for one of the rocker studs. I've had the bike since new so I know it was the factory.

So what do you think? Oh and normaly it has a parcel rack on, but don't look so nice with it on.
