I'm not big on trials bikes and I'm not big on british bikes but I'm big on cool bikes and that's one of the coolest sets of bikes I've seen in a long time.

those things rock!

Dammit, I missed it again. I hope to 1 day bring my dad's Greeves Anglian and have a bash.

Cheers for the pics.

Great pictures

Thanks for posting those great pictures. Nice to see the great quality photos of these vintage bikes actually being ridden rather than being bid on.

I like this. Thanks for sharing. I think this is a 1977 or so Indian Enfield? Looks just like the one I am building up. AHRMA calls them Premier Heavyweight bikes.

I might be wrong but its in a pre-65 event so I doubt it.

Looks like a Brit one with a special frame or adapted - swingarm looks standard Brit with adaptations, upper shock mount forward from standard. Chassis definitely not Indian, nor front brake - and the finning on the exterior of the oil tank cast into the sump is different, too (more like my '51 English Bullet than my 2003 Indian one).

According to the program, it is a 1958 350cc Bullet.

It would probably come down to the host organization's rules as to eligability.
A pre-unit Enfield could be considered "spirit-of" pre-65 just as many of the new aftermarket frame and bodywork bits sold today are, assuming the component was as "back in the day".

My Indian built machine looks mostly the same as this 58. The gear shift surrounds the kick start shaft just the same as mine. My bike uses the same 1/2 width hubs. Very nice to see an original machine.

Good god man!! you'll have the vintage boys "Tsking" and there's no greater show of displeasure than a Tsk! I know I was on the receiving end of one for having an incorrectly marked timing cover on my 500 Ariel.
