What’s supposed to be 1965 about that?

2 other newer Royal Enfields have been listed as 60s bikes. They did not have titles. They also had disk brakes.
This one has drum brakes and a title, so I had assumed it was the real deal.
What would be a good way to tell the difference from newer one as compared to the England made ones?

Around 1955, Royal Enfield in England changed to this shape of rear frame.[Linked Image from motorbase.com]

And the ones built in India never made this change.

Ok, I think I can see it now. The rear lower leg of the frame is about 15 degrees out of plumb on the England Enfields and about 45 degrees out of plumb on the India Enfields.
Thanks for the help.
