Go to Metro tyres next to Alibhai on Lamington Rd. I picked up a block pattern Dunlops 3.5-inch very similar to Ceat Secura there. I think price is close to MRF

Cheers

Correction. MRFx2 . The 3.5x19 MRF's retail for around 850 per tyre. How about Duro tyres.

100/90-19 Suitable For Enfield Bullet Front Rs.1595.00
110/90-19 Suitable For Enfield Bullet Rear Rs.1760.00

Called Metro Tyres yesterday. They said Dunlop 3.50x19 cost around 1050 each. Duro 110/90-19 - 2650.

The 110/90-19 will be a tight fit and may require swing arm mod or cutting a portion of the chain cover. My front-end is a little more bumpier with the block Dunlops but provide a much better braking performance with discs than my old MRF ribbed tyres.

Will the 3.5 Dunlop fit in the front without touching the mudguard?

No problem with 3.5 Dunlops fitted at front. The block tread design requires a little more steering effort

a4_attitude, the bike is being modded to look like a Cafe-Racer. A broader and smaller rear would look out of place in this.

Nice pic of the RE Interceptor, Gordon.

Sigh! I wish I could keep my bike THAT grease free!

The brackets for the BSA tail light are fixed. The only things pending now are (apart from painting) :

Drilling holes on the mudguard for the tail light, since the taillight will be directly fixed onto the mudguard.
Deciding the placement of the number plate and the indicators.
