Hello 14000rpm, What a co-incidence, I also came across this link just a couple of minutes ago and was thinking of starting a seperate thread. However refrained thinking mods might not allow it. And here we have you starting this thread.

Infact, I came across this link from a website called Adventure Rider and also came across an interesting thread on Cafe Racers for which I have posted a link in the Cafe Racers thread by Gordon (Café Racer Project #050905CR -> 1984 Royal Enfield Standard).

Cheers mate!!!

Ok found it the official website of carberry enfield
Welcome to CARBERRY ENFIELD

check out the compression ratio its so low 6.5:1 .. engine modification gurus please throw some light on this
The exhaust in the picture above shows a normal stock exhaust and the one in the video has a megaphone exhaust.. sounds very very good

The carberry costs approx US$10000
IMHO Would be great as a novelty but practically i dunno how many would wanna buy one at that price.

Superb looking bike, the 1st one. Neat job! But for $10K, there may be very few takers IMO. Love the red-black combo!
