First "classic" bike, I've had many bikes over the years, mostly custom and sports bikes but I've been wanting a classic to keep hold of long term.
I bought this 350 bullet from an old gent that had imported it in 2015 and never put a mile on the clock, as it was too big for him.
This was when I bought it.
The paper work with it shows it was built for the Indian army originally, then completely rebuilt before being imported to the UK.
It retains an age related plate, albeit everything bar the engine and chassis is new....
I've removed the engine crash bar as I wasn't a fan, the pillion seat I've taken off and stored. The front reg plate (indian plate) removed, and the airbox I've repainted black as I felt the yellow was too much..... and we do miles not kilometers here.
What I'd like to do, is replace all the modern parts that they've put on it, with more age related parts.
Smiths speedo and a Lucas
ammeter, the ignition switch I'll relocate to the tool box, and put the lamp on/off switch back where it would have been.
The modern switch gear I want to replace with the older style brake and clutch lever with decompression lever. And just a horn/dim switch on the bars.
I've noticed that after a short while riding, the bike seems hot and will randomly cut out, it will take a good few minutes for it to fire into life again, bit I can't figure out the reason for this
