About a week ago, I received a phone call from my trustworthy mechanic (www.pardesimotors.com) to let me know that an Enfield has shown up and was up for sale. Without blinking and thinking twice I jumped on my bike and rode down to the shop and within an hour, I was the owner of a classic (if not vintage) 1972 B-Model Royal Enfield. Sweet. Here it is. And here's how the engine looks. Notice the kick start lever is non-foldable. I learned that after trying to fold it for a minute or so. First time I've ever seen it.
