The quality is good. The Indian was trained by the parent factory in 1955 (or ’56, I forget), and never stopped since. The company in England went in 1970.

Some people buy one and happy with it, but it always out to be people who didn’t do their first and didn’t realize they were getting or bought the bike for the wrong Although it’s new manufacture, still being made (or were anyway, until year) by hand the way they trained over 50 years

A lot of people buy one because they the look, but they don’t that this isn’t a retro bike (by ‘retro’ I a modern design styled to like an old bike). It’s the thing. It’s a half-century old still made a half-century old It has some improvements, like an 12 volt system, twin shoe front brake, starter added in 2002 I never use, I prefer the starter), etc.

But basically it’s still an old that was made the way the original made it. That’s why I bought I didn’t just want the I wanted the whole experience of an old design. Many people are with them because overlook this aspect of it. buy the bike but don’t find bike quality or performance, and they call it junk.

But not a modern bike. That escapes many people. definitely not for everyone.

It has it’s and you have to learn to coax it to and keep it alive, just the original machines 50 years

Maintenance is more involved with a modern bike. not to say it’s harder, there’s more of it. Things have to be more often. But the design is more simple than a bike, so it’s easy to on. Many people I’ve from say that’s one reason bought one, they a simpler design would be to learn to wrench on.

It’s a shaker (they don’t them ‘thumpers’ for nothing), and and bolts have to be checked to make sure they tight. It’s all part of the (although today we have ). I still have a lot to learn but that was part of the appeal for me I bought it. I wanted to experience it was like for my dad when he rode London with his buddies in the

So it works for me.

It has an extensive break-in which I’m still in the of because I don’t get a lot of free to ride. Speeds have to be low during this time. also not a bike for extended riding. The motor isn’t up to it.

happiest exploring back roads at 25-55 mph. the primary type of riding I had in for mine. If you want to do a lot of freeway look elsewhere.

Some say If I want to ride an old bike, buy one, not a copy. First, not a copy. The Bullet has the distinction of the oldest model still in production in the world. It’s not a replica, it’s the bike never stopped making. I like the Bullet just for own sake.

It’s just a really bike. And third, I don’t the time or resources to either buy a 50 year old bike and restore it, or buy one been restored. This was the perfect answer, it suits my

If anyone is considering buying one they love the look, I them to seriously consider why want one and what kind of they want from it. If you the experience in addition to the appearance, go for it. If you want the look, but with reliability and convenience, this will disappoint you.

a retro bike instead, a modern Triumph Bonneville or A bike like that beat the Royal Enfield in those categories.

These cautions don’t to the new EFI models. They’re retro a completely new design from the up, utilizing modern technology and methods and achieving reliability and performance much more on par modern bikes. They gave it very attractive It would be a much better if you want less intensive and more modern technology/reliabilty.

also much better to freeway cruising, being a engine design, capable of cruising for long periods.

But all that being said, I my Bullet for what it is, what it in an old design, and the experience it delivers. a machine with soul, not a pretty face. I can hop on my Nighthawk, hit the button, and zip off down the road giving it a second thought.

But when it takes a little to coax this beast to let it warm up as I enjoy the sound of glorious ‘thump-thump-thump’, and feel the increasing cadence of that one big as I power through the curves, I I made the right choice I brought this machine Other bikes may come and go, but keeping my Bullet forever.
