Got up this morning and found the latest Hitchcocks catalogue on the mat. I've just had a quick browsing though the latest additions. Must say there is some good new parts I like the 13 spoke alloy wheels

Have not had one in years but yes, this morning there was one in our mailbox. Not looked at it yet, too many home jobs to be done before we start roaming about.

Mine arrived too, or hosts must have thought we still have a bit too much money left! What you must NOT do however is drag out your old (eg) 2007 catalogue and see how much the prices for all those desirable bits have gone up in the last nine years. I shall be reading and weeping later on, but just to share the joy, here's a sample.

Café racer alloy top yoke was £159 + VAT back then, the 200160A long stroke crank £665 + VAT.

Armed with this and a time machine you can go back and make a pretty persuasive argument to the domestic finance committee (once she has given up trying to work out why you look nine years older) that NOW (2007) is the time to build that Bullet you always wanted.

I've got the catalogue as well! Hooray! I tend to throw out the old one, so I don't know about any price increases.

Where's mine then???? Not that I'm jealous or anything. I'd love to know what new goodies there are for the C5. Perhaps they send them in alphabetical order?

So much I would buy. So little can I afford. Sigh!! Still I can dream of a lottery win. I love the NEW ROUNDED PANNIERS (92900) you can get for the Classic. Wish you could get them for the Electra.

Although I only have one Bullet and that's Redditch, (actually, thinking about it I also have the Ebay Bullet on which progress is being made again!) I love the catalogue for inspiration because quite a few cycle parts and some engine parts will fit the Twins and other models. I also like giving the old catalogue to owners of lesser bikes just to show them how good a spares supplier can be!

REgards, Mark

Methinks the timing of the catalogue along with the free Royal Enfield supplement given away with this month's Classic Bike is no coincidence!

What about this for a competition prize. A trolley dash around Hitchcocks. Hmmmm. After investigation of the new catalogue of course. One can only dream.

Does anyone have a spare copy of the supplement which went out with Classic Bike magazine? My brother just acquired an Enfield and would love to read it before getting stuck ito the inevitable parts acquisition process, but it turns out mine got lost in a house move. Either surface post or a scanned copy/PDF would be fine. I don't visit this forum too often, so a reply to would be best. Thanks in advance!

The Indian made under seat covers, part 93085 were dropped from our range over 2 years ago due to poor quality and consistency. Instead we opted to invest in tooling and manufacture some polypropylene covers, these are far superior and very consistent. Incidentally they are made in Redditch within a few miles of the old factory. They are listed under part number 93086 and 93087
