This is a 2000 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Deluxe. I am the third owner. This bike is a real head-turner, with scarlet red paint and lots of chrome.
It's a 500cc single cylinder ("thumper") with a 4-speed transmission. The shifter is on the right. Top speed is around 65mph. It runs very well and usually starts on the second or third kick.
Please be aware that due to their old design, these machines do require attention to tuning and maintenance. I'll include several oil change kits and other maintenance parts and supplies.
There is a new (as of last summer) Avon AM7 Safety Mileage MKII tire on rear wheel. The original Avon tires are no longer available, but the company recommends the AM7 as the current best fit.
I've added a rear seat back, new grips and bullet-style turn signals. The right-side tool box got scraped, so I repainted it and added decals, but the color is not quite an exact match (see photo). There is also a scrape on the right side of the gas tank.
This bike is very low mileage for its age and has been stored in a clean garage for the past 12 years at least.
