Hi Alok! Indeed, its single owned! I'm not the direct owner of this bull, its within our family, those who had read few of my other posts would be aware of this. Anyway, as far as kms logged, there is no concrete idea, but as far as we can recollect, it has crossed well over 6lakh kilometers for sure and this had been ridden in numerous National level rallies during those days. Regarding overhaul, there is not much we can recollect. But the last engine overhaul was done in 2005.

Try to get an Amal carb.
Neverthless, she is a looker.
Thx Jeeva. The magneto points are the original '57 ones! It is perfectly functional.

Or probably the chasey is changed
HI 82rawath, you are right. The chaises has been changed since the original one was damaged. Planning to switch over to the original one shortly.

Royal Enfield official website now features the Bullet STD 350 with UCE engine. The writeup says it features a neutral finder for easy shifting to neutral. Is that true?

I think it is a case of copy-paste job gone bad ie RE dudes just copied the Bullet 350's introduction added a sentence in the first para and thought it can be passed off as an intro for Bullet UCE 350.
Here's Bullet 350's intro on their site: "The legendary Bullet 350 need no introduction.
This classic machine has kept place with advances in engineering and ergonomics without diluting its impeccable pedigree.
A long wheel base and bigger tyres provide increased stability and road grip, making it ideal for long distance travel. It also features a neutral fider for easy shifting to neutral.
Its aristocartic black & gold livery and thumping engine beat remind passers by that they are in the presence of automotive royalty."

And voila here's Bullet 350 UCE's intro: "The legendary Bullet 350 need no introduction. Now Bullet 350 is with all new UCE engine.
This classic machine has kept place with advances in engineering and ergonomics without diluting its impeccable pedigree.
A long wheel base and bigger tyres provide increased stability and road grip, making it ideal for long distance travel. It also features a neutral fider for easy shifting to neutral.
Its aristocartic black & gold livery and thumping engine beat remind passers by that they are in the presence of automotive royalty."

By the way, UCE's thump will not turn heads, it is just a soft wizzzz which can be quiet conveniently ignored!!!
