Looks like an Enfield made in India, long after 1965. Nearer 1990.

The horn looks period, but the markings on the gauges may offer a clue as to the real age of the machine.
While the rear mudguard shape certainly looks more like contemporary Indian to me, I'm fairly certain that the Indian built machines didn't or couldn't use the complete "Royal Enfield" logo until the rights were bought. According to Hitchcocks website : "The original "export" 350 Bullet was first imported into the UK in 1977 and was the old cast iron barreled engine with 4 speed gearbox. The 500 was first manufactured in 1989 and until 1999 all Bullets were called "Enfield". From 1999 to 2007 they have been known as "Royal Enfield".

Marks on the gauges? Mudguard shape? Tank transfers? The horn!

Start with the frame, mate.
