Highly Tuned

1996 Indian manufacture Enfield; alloy cylinder with stock bore size and a J&E hi-comp forged piston at 12:1; Hitchcock's billet crank and con rod assembly; a thoroughly ported Indian head with big valves...etc.
1.5" Amal GP carb and 2% oxygenated VP fuel. Akront style alloy rims front and rear, 19" respectively and sport Avon vintage racing tyres.
The rear shocks are Ohlins vintage roadrace items and the forks are stock with Hitchcock's softer springs and modified valving.
Billet alloy triple clamps that allow the front to be lowered as needed.
The rear hub has been re-created in alloy to allow sprocket changes with keyed overlays.
Dyno results: 47/48 hp @ 6,800 rpm.

Welcome on board chaps

Ah, Grant and Shirty glad you've come on board. It's all easy after you've done a couple of posts. If you know of anybody else that might fancy an input let me know. Apparently there can be up to 100 contributors, so it can be almost forum like, and if it drifts that way so be it, I suggest we let this thing lead us where it does.

Found this on Boyle's BCM blog. What a thing of absolute beauty, genuine Big Head by the looks of things. If Carlsberg made motorcycles.......
