1965 Vintage Royal Enfield Scrambler Project

My second project, yay !!

I was lucky enough to find another enfield standing in the corner of some obscure shop here in New Delhi. This time it was a 1965. I have been eyeing another bike for sometime but couldn't get anything as old as this. After much bargaining later, I bought this Vintage Royal Enfield. Though at a very steep price because it was made originally in Redditch and quite possibly the only 1965 available here. Bank account is flat but me is happy, Yessir !!








And this is what I have in mind for this :





Cheers,
Chanderjeet

That first photo is pure art. I'd like a shirt with that on the back or a calender of the build.

Nice project

Whats the numbers on the engine and frame?

I could be wrong but IMO it don't look like a British Enfield due to the triangles bolted to the gearbox should be shorter.
I think 70s or 80s Indian made plus the switches, trafficators, when did they come into being?

You are right, most of the stuff is fairly *new. The bike had been used well by its last owner who after like 2 decades of onwership starting putting on all sorts of unmatched / aftermarket parts.Will get the engine and chassis # soon. Thanks everyone else.


And yes, by trials I meant like a offroader and not the trials where they jump rocks and pipes.

I was about to put on my Enfield Enthusiast's hat and complain that this bike isn't a 1965 Royal Enfield, until I took a closer look and realised that it's an Enfield India.
