They sell the Clubman version in the UK but not here in the States. I inquired about what it would cost to upgrade it to a Clubman and was quoted about $4000, ouch, that's on top of the $6000 they are asking for a new Bullet classic. It's got the right look, if not the performance of a Goldie.

my father has just droped about 5k into his new bullet in the form of engine parts it has been bored and stroked to 612cc has a ported head, cams hd oil pump, flatslide carb and a few other bits an pieces it should put out aproximatly 40HP once done which isnt too bad concidering (it is the same engine they used in "1952")
