Congratulations ac 427. You are having a great combination
Please keep posting about Cl 500 experience. As the UCE REs having wet clutch, is there JASO MA/MA2 certification required for engine oil?

@Garry Berry.

I prefer the C500 anyday for highway rides, due to its easy cruising abilities even at speeds in excess of 100 kph. The CI350 is my first choice for in city and short rides. Love the thump of it.........!!

Had one; similar color, my first bike! Sold it when I bought the Avenger and I didnt have space to keep the other :(

AVL had 4 S and on RHS. I used to get 33~35kmpl on a daily use.

Nothing to say das da. You have sold a unique model. 35 kmpl is not bad at all. Do you still have Owner's Manual with you? How many kms you covered total on odo?

Hi Madhkris thanks for the appreciation. The bike got restored in 2008 which I brought in 2009 as it is after buying I must have hardly done 300-350 kms, its only for pleasure ride. I am thinking of restoring the bike to the core with maximum originality which would start soon. There is only one modification done to the bike which is changing the short delco to a latest bullet point system however while restoring the bike it would go back to the short delco. I am in lookout for original Royal Enfield pictures which I am sure you folks can help.

Your ride is one of the best creations from RE the best part of this bike is the fuel tank with chrome and the paint stripe in the middle, front mudgaurd with disc brakes and there was a model where it used to come with twin seats which is again classic. Keep your ride precious and ride safe, Thanks.

It makes me so happy looking at all these pictures on this thread. Real ingenuity, passion and love.

I recently restored my 2003 TB, and am taking delivery this weekend. No modifications though. Will post pictures this weekend.

It's very refreshing to see such a clean gear box and oil tank. Your TB looks nice. Have fun riding her.

Congratulation on return of thunder (AFAIK first AVL engine for RE in India). Bike is looking as good as new.

But story of restoration (& previous experience) is still untold. What are the problems in restoration of an AVL engine?

If you have story with pics, please start a separate thread (as this thread is meant for pics only)
