    Royal Enfield Bullet 500Glory Hallelujah! I found what I was looking for. Ecce moto! It’s an old iron barrel Royal Enfield Bullet 500, the classic type, no frills. This model hasn’t changed in over 50 years, they forgot to stop making them. The bike I bought is a 1999 model and is no longer available new since this year, due to new European regulations. It had been parked under a tree, covered with an old tarpaulin, for 2 years. That’s where I found it. There are some technical problems, none of which can’t be solved, but more than anything it needs some good care and polish. I can do that. It’s now at a service shop and I will officially take possession of it on Monday 13th of April. In the mean time I have some private matters to attend to. You can follow my restauration and tune-up project at a new site dedicated to this jewel at www.royal-enfield.gr
