By clicking on the picture you can see the result of 2 days work of converting a totally standard Indian built Classic Bullet using various accessories from our stock which are all listed in our online accessory catalogue. The job was given to one of our "level headed" guys with a brief to come up with whatever he liked, with just one stipulation, to use unmodified, off the shelf parts. This is just an example of what can be done. You can create the look and style that you want and can use as many or as few parts as you wish. Below is a list of the parts we have used in this project.
1950s HANDLEBAR KIT
This kit comprises of a set of English made Doherty levers, throttle, rubbers and a set of 4 English made cables. It replaces the modern controls giving a typical 1950s look.
For 5 speed models order part BARKIT2.
Note 1: This kit is supplied with a front brake brake light switch which is hidden from view in the casquette.
Note 2: For models made before June 1999 and fitted with Magura controls, you would be advised to fit the later type electrics cluster allowing an easier changeover to the above kit.

FORK TOP YOKE

It has a highly polished alloy finish and looks superb.
Note 1: We also have available an Indian made copy of this yoke. The quality of this item and the accuracy of manufacture is outside our normal standards.

Note 3: Why not fit a Smiths replica speedo to really set it off.

The silencer has a removable baffle which can be modified by the owner to give the desired compromise between noise and performance.
