Thanks. I have tried to keep it as ship shape as possible, all through my ownership.

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)
There is not much of a story. Apart from a Busted Starter Coil, Magnet, Crank Bearings, nothing else had to be changed. No piston/cylinder job was needed. I still have another couple of things to do - Something about the Seat and change the Rear Shocks. Any suggestions?
The only other thing is, I was about to sell this off in Feb-Mar this year for 30K. Had almost finalized a deal. Then backed out at the last moment, and finally went in for this complete back to new restoration.
She still rides like a dream.

The Top View of the Bike is Awesome. Have rarely seen an Enfield from this Angle, without someone being on it. By the way, we seem to share the same Leg Guards. :-)

What is the cost of painting (paint + labour)? Have you done it at Authorised Work shop or out side (Paint is done very nicely)?

Regarding seat if you do not have any specific problem, continue with existing one. Because of cruiser style of TB it will be matter of big R&D. regarding rear shocks if RE classics’s shocks are direct fitment go with that otherwise electra’s gas filled shocks. Only go for direct fit shocks.

Don't recall the exact price of the paint job. Did the job from an establishment named "Metalartzian", run by Sagar. He did a very professional job. I paid him around 20K for everything (Paint + Chrome + Engine Crank Work + New Rims etc...)

I'm keen to understand the difference between the electra gas shocks, and the Classic's shocks. Can you help?

I referred them separately because there is difference in wheel size Classic (18”) & Electra (19”). Not necessary but there may be a little difference in lenght. If no difference in length we can go for classic one.

Please tell us more about that RD350 carb. When the Mikunis/Micarbs and the CV carbs are available freely, is there any specific reason why you chose an RD carb? Are there any significant changes felt with the new carb?

The RD350 Carb setup with increased jet valve was done just to experiment about the performance and FE . Initially it had good impact giving a very good FE, but no difference in performance. Slowly i got to face a gradual decrease both in performance and mileage . So I personally don't suggest this setup, I am getting back to the standard Mikuni carb again.
