Leftovers of an adv-enfield

Thought I'd share this with you guys and gals. Picked it up yesterday from a friend as a project.
Someone took this old T7-ish bike and mongled it into a high rear fender knobby tired whatchamacallit.

Complete with apes. So, it's ready for the Darien. Just needs a few more bits.

Time start mapping some routes... after I get the wheels unstuck and rolling again. May be time for new tyres too. Probably could reuse those tubes.

Yeah, I'm used to Jap bikes. I've been creepin on the EnfieNd pages trying to figure out what it really was. Documentation on these is a hot mess.

Hell, it doesn't even have consistent parts bolted on it, near as I can tell.

Looks like an Indian Tomahawk/Apache subframe bolted to an earlier 7t frame, maybe. At this rate I'll need two whole parts bikes.

Got the wheel off without drama. Well, I had to cut the brake cable, but nbd. Shoes were frozen so I had to add water and bfh them loose. No more locked front wheel. Now to do the rear.



Behold the chopperyness of it all. That's a Goodyear Grasshopper on the back. Flat tread cycle tire, not darksided.

I actually had to go dig out my SAE wrenches and sockets. Boy it's been a while for them.

I couldn't say. This is my first Enfieldish bike. I'm starting to think it's an Indian from the parts it has.

It's mid-fifties, maybe late fifties, so it's made in merry ole' England, at least.
