i have even proof of it which are books published in 1970 by British authors. regards bruce d Hello, I am a new member and I have for only a few weeks been a Enfield-owner.
They said the could not verify the age of the bike from the very worn Indian vehicle document.
In 1953 the 500 cc model appeared, using the same bottom end. The con job is to fake a copy of early 60's/70's bikes documentation, and affix the numbers to late model bikes; probably stolen... took a AGES but DID arrive - cost him lot´s of nerves tough!
Bought a bike from Madaan Motors in Dehli, supposed to be a 1965 Bullet 500, took 2 years to reach me...
(I only found out about Madaan rıght after the purchase, hehe) Greetz, Olaf hi, everyone there.
Regards Leif Brynildsen Lillehammer, Norway Hello, I am a new member and I have for only a few weeks been a Enfield-owner.
So if someone here can help me dechiffering the serial-number(s) into some year/date, that would be fine. The con job is to fake a copy of early 60's/70's bikes documentation, and affix the numbers to late model bikes; probably stolen... If they were exported to India, during that short period when Enfield India assembled but not manufactured, bikes then Enfield India stamped the letters EI for, Enfield India, followed by a number that was similar to the G2 number.
The bike has two sets of numbers, both on engine and steering head. From what I have found here I suppose it is about correct with -65, but that it probably is a 350 because of that? They are currently embroiled in litigation with various disgruntled over-seas 'clients'. Your bike WILL have been assembled from a collection of mismatched and worn out parts; even if it starts and runs I doubt if it will run for long prior to suffering a major mechaincal break-down. Sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news, but you have been ripped off. I doubt if any knowledgeable RE expert would ever put their name to any sworn statement verifying the bona-fides of your bike. So in that short period there were two sets of inentification numbers on the frames and engines.
