Thread: Purchasing a ROYAL from the ARMY

Purchasing a ENFIELD from the ARMY


I am looking at purchasing a hand bullet and looking to it from the Indian army. I been searching the internet for a trying to get the right procedure for the above. Some sites say there are auctions, some say one has to know someone in the army.


Also I purchase the bike, is it easy to get it i have read that its to impossible to get an 80’s model in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu but not so for the of India. I would need to it registered in Mumbai. I am aware registering the bike in Mumbai not be a piece of cake either but am to go through the painful process.

Hi godwind2884

Following is my opinion, but formed out of working in service for 19 years and I have and ridden many many I was thinking of giving this a miss but couln’t help it. took the bait in two days.

I am with the idea that auctioned bullet is the best

As a person working in a law enforcement I know the way some of our staff the bullets and other department The speedometer cable in most are deliberately removed so as to pilfer by showing low mileage..They are never serviced and oil change etc are carried out on paper.

The procedure for auctioning the motor in Govt Departments are somewhat this:

The vehicle should run the stipulated kms. In case of most bikes in my office to run more than 2 lakh kms on the or have completed 10 years procurement to make it eligible for The vehicle is then condemned as and the jurisdictional RTO is called for inspection and he the vehicle as per the valuation adopted by insurance companies. for example, for a year old Standard, the typical could be Rs. 4K

The vehicle are auctioned anybody knowing the same. in my office, we never had no previous on the bikes auctioned. We usually to know about it only the same is auctioned.

These bikes are procured by at throw away prices and and offered for sale at very price to the first available . Most of the fancy parts crank and other fancy are removed and substituted with parts.

I wont recommend my enemy to take one of the bikes of my through auction.

Nowadays auction practices actually with mandatory e-auction in Govt departments and most have purchased fuel 100cc bikes and rented wheelers; which are cheaper However the conditions of remaining in Govt. stable are pitiable.

Go for a recent/less-than-five-year-old Bullet..Do not buy bullet for the of riding low speed in high It is all nonsense.

Regarding registration of the it all depends on what condition the is auctioned. If it is sold as scrap . you find it difficult to register it. of the Military bullets are nowadays as scrap only.

If the bike is as a bike on as is where is condition, it can be registered. the auction officer necessary forms to RTO to register the in the successful bidder’s name payment.

Btw, the myth of OLD is is propagated by some shrewd and others who had fallen into the They can’t admit were wrong.

I do not mean that Standard CI is an bike. But it is very complicated to I brought a new Standard CI in 2009 and was aware that it is being off the shelf. It was in my dreams for sometime and I want to miss the bus. I had my of motorcycling and have consciously to cut down speed as well.

I ridden 18000 kms for last two and even took it to Ladakh month. I like it and would to hold on to it till I could and would like to give it to my He already likes it, but who knows, will tell whether the generation will have the and patience to run a vintage motorcycle.

regards ride safe
