Project Enfield dry build continues

Carl at CFM's been busy on Sideburn's Project Royal Enfield. New Venhill throttle and Suzuki DRZ front brake m.cyl.
Tractor headlight (from Adolfo at Bonneville in Madrid, muchas gracias) mounted from Bimota yokes.
Humongous front engine mount cut down and drilled. Those bolts will be replaced. Enfields are built to survive decades of hard labour on Indian roads, so it's easy to lighten them and still retain strength. We're looking forward to weighing the finished bike and see what we've shed.
Rear engine mount drilled; footrest hanger plate made, DRZ footrest and brake assembly.
It's virtually non-stop till the debut on the Royal Enfield UK stand at Motorcycle Live at the NEC. G

That headlight looks great! Would have guessed Husky early 80s and not tractor...

Looking good, and nice couple of articles in Cycle World, good to see a SIDEBURN plug
