The Royal Enfield Bullet hardly needs an introduction. But we're going to give you a brief "heads-up" anyway.
British by design, and originally manufactured in Redditch (near Birmingham, UK), the design migrated to India in the mid-1950s where the bike was produced in Madras under licence; first as a 346cc machine (nominally a 350), and later as a 499cc bike (nominally a 500).
Since then, Royal Enfields have been produced on the Indian sub-continent, and the bikes have been further developed and have found new fans and new buyers.
Production started well in the 1950s, went downhill fast in the 1970s through to the 1990s, and has been improving ever since. Today, the Bullet still doesn't match the quality of the best of its rivals. But it's a long way from the worst. Eicher Motors, the current owner, has invested hugely into the Bullet, and that investment is paying off.
Classic Battle Green
The model depicted here is the Classic Battle Green Bullet designed to emulate the military mounts, but built for the street.
The performance isn't bad at around 75 - 80mph, and with a bit of modification, the 27bhp, lean-burn, fuel-injected engine is capable of pushing through the "magic" ton.
Expect up to 70mpg.
Overall, these electric start, all-aluminium 5-speeders have come a long way from the original 4-speed, kickstart-only British design. They stop well too, and the suspension is all you're ever likely to need for everyday road riding.
Royal Enfields were last produced in the UK in 1962, but most of us still think of the Indian built models as British bikes.
But whichever Royal Enfield Bullet you choose, you might want to remember that these have a great pedigree and were stunning trials machines in their day. They fought hard, and they played dirty, and they racked up win after win.
The size of this Rpyal Enfield Bullet sign is a generous 300mm x 410mm, which is roughly the size of two A4 sheets of paper.
The image quality is 1,400 dpi, which is way better than most, if not all, of the lesser quality stuff on the market. And the edges are folded to help preserve those delicate finger nails.
Also, these Royal Enfield Bullet signs are printed direct to metal in the traditional way.
Will you like it when you see it? We think so. If we didn't, we wouldn't be flogging 'em.
We package these signs as well as we reasonably can, and we despatch as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours of ordering, and very rarely longer than 2-3 days if suddenly stock has run out and needs to be re-supplied.
Either way, we'll keep you posted. And if for any reason we can't supply your sign, we'll tell you without unnecessary delay and will refund your money in full.
And remember this if you will:
