My Customized Royal Enfield Interceptor

1966 Interceptor. I'll make no apologies for the color scheme, some have complained about it.
Suzuki GT750 front forks with dual disk brakes, special made etched copper badges in the calipers which say Royal Enfield.
Work started in February, 2011, completed last week (May, 2012)
Original plan was to do two Enfields in the same amount of time; the Interceptor, and my 1958 Indian Tomahawk, but a serious illness involving a hospital stay put me off my pace, and it took 'till November to regain momentum. By March this year, I decided if I didn't concentrate on one bike, I'd have two uncompleted bikes at my deadline, which was May 20th, the date of an important vintage motorcycle show I wanted to display the bikes at.

Hi, Carlo!!!
I certainly would not apologize either!!! Color schemes and & bike construction are a matter of personal preference!!! You did a nice job on this machine & I am quite sure you improved the braking!!! Curious as to how differently it handles with the modified front axle location. Well done!

Thanks for sharing the pix!!!

The color scheme made the difference. Weird but still cool. Excellent work overall.
