Wink Which Bike is this??

The engine looks like its Enfield 500's, but the tank and the headlamp assembly looks different than yesteryear's bulls.

Any thoughts??

You should have asked the ladies when you took the picture.

The engine is definitely an Enfield 350 0r 500. The rest is a mix and match. The crankcase cover is a giveaway that it's not an Indian built one.

Could it be an old Yezdi, with some Indian mod-touche.

Looks like Enfield 250cc, not made in India. Could be wrong.

By looking at the tank and gear box, it looks like a BSA or a Matchless to me

More Matchless because I compared if with the below picture! Btw the bike below is listed for sale..

It is probably an old enfield because you can see the rear break lever on the left footside ,even the engine design is a typical enfield kind. wow what a thread to start with

Ha I was looking at the bike carefully trying to identify it but then could never find it out ! nice notice. By the way I think the ladies are sisters. The elder one in charge of the handles.
