The Babies Was looking at the next one I will do. It’s a 1990. I need to finish the Royal Enfield side hack first.

You need to serve up some pics of the Royal Enfield. I don't know why but I have always liked them. Same thing with Ural's.

The Royal Enfield side hack is an interesting project. I decided I was going to sell some of the bikes. I sold the 2008 Triumph. I was looking for a side car for another project when I found the 2005 Royal Enfield Bullet 500. The bottom end was gone. It had 4000 miles on it. I negotiated a really good price which was less than the value of the side car.

Here's a picture of the rig


Here's a picture of the bike in the shop


Being inquisitive I decided to tear the engine down and see what it would take to fix it I figured about $500 in parts and decided it was worth it since I really didn't have much into it.

Turned out I needed to build a fixture to true the crank because it's press fit together like a Harley.


The engine is almost complete.

Very nice work indeed. As usual I am a little bit envious.
you always seem to find great buys. One day you will have to lead a semin9on how to do it.

I just keep my eyes open. Over time I’ve learned that you need to know what the resale value will be because most likely I will turn the bike. Very few stay with me long because I use the profits to keep it all going. It gives me an opportunity to ride many different bikes and find the best ones. The CBR’s are still one of the best although I really like the upright UJM bikes the best because my back isn’t very good anymore. The 919 was my favorite. I have a CB1000 that has the CBR engine that is pretty good although heavier than the 919. The 2008 Triumph was nice but had a funky feel in the steering (probably oversteer). You get spoiled on the good handling bikes. The Harley I had was the worst. Terrible bikes. Sounded nice tho.
