Pretorian, that's a good looking bull.

I have a '94 CI 350, which is modified to a 60s look, almost like the jawa maroon one in the first page.
I like your single seat; did you have it when you bought or sourced it later ?? Any place where I can get a similar one in hyderabad ??

Hey Ashok, about the seat - I got that when I bought it. Its hard on comfort though (hard springs), but i really like it and kept it that way. Even I am too looking out for people who can customize seats in Hyderabad, little busy at work right now, will keep this thread updated if I find one.

But I believe you can the stock single seats from RE folks, I presume they have good springs.

But the best one i saw was Anikets' single seat, really looking forward to get one of these:
A 700cc V-Twin Royal Enfield from Aniket Vardhan

That one looks good, but I have a feeling it wont look good in my bike. What I have in mind is slightly different, definitely one I have seen somewhere. I will try to fetch a picture.
BTW, this is how my bull looks now, I dont want to throw away this seat, but would like to have an occasional single seat ride too.

Hey Ashok, your bull looks nice, do keep the seat, it has its uses :-) I am considering for a split seat version where I could remove the pillion seat at will for that rare lone rider feeling. Do post me the seat pics if you come across, we'll try searching for them in the city, or source if required.

and the carb,it looks like mikuni,again used on later models.
i can also spot changes around CB points area,i cant recall what,but will try to find out.
No it is not at all original 1966 Bull.
*front fork is not original
*CB Point cover is latest.
*Carb is latest.
*Original IGN switch used to be having 2 switches on tool box.( a tiny one and large one)
*rear shocks are latest.
*Tappet cover is latest.
*Tappet cover bolt is regular unlike wing type.
*Speedo drive worm is in the front wheel instead of rear wheel.
*Many more will come out once we see the bike .
*Dont take what the 0wner says that 1966 year.
*Engine casting is not that refined as it was in 1966...
