Enfield 500 Scrambler
« on: Feb 23, 2018, 01:35:09 »
Starting my street legal Enfield 500 Scrambler build, pulled most of it apart, rewired a few days ago , changed tires, picture is the bike as purchased (I wet sanded and polished the primary cover), lots to do.

What a gorgeous bike, what year is it?  A mate of mine has two late 60's era Enfield Bullets that he had shipped over from India sitting in his garage in need of some TLC, and I'm always badgering him to make it happen.  I'll point him in the direction of this thread to get him inspired!

Dude, question.  When people say "I'm in" with threads, what exactly do they mean?  Total rookie question!  I've just seen it for so long that I've just assumed it means people are following along - but is there more to it?  Sorry for the thread hijack!

I really like the exhaust, are you going to fabricate a heat-shield for it? What are your plans for the rear fender?

Heat shield yes, what's wrong with my rear fender.

  You said you were going to refit the rear fender brace, didn't know if that was going to be done to accommodate some work on the rear fender or not, which is why I asked.

There's a Bookmark feature - you can bookmark the thread and then have easy access to follow along with builds.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

 Hey man, what year is this bike?  and did you have to have an intake machined to fit up the monoblock carb?  My original '46 BSA C11 has the same carb and seat that you put on this bike

Was a time when many bikes had one of these

 Is that a grease gun or an air pump?
