He's good but the tank sucks. Big ole ding in it before it leaves the factory.

I didn't see any dings.. I saw attachment points for the emblem on both sides of the tank, though..
Yeah, I think Paper is right.

You're probably right, I watched it real quick over lunch. I didn't know Royal Enfield's were made in India?

Royal Enfield was the name under which the Enfield Cycle Company made motorcycles, bicycles, lawnmowers and stationary engines. This legacy of weapons manufacture is reflected in the logo, a cannon, and their motto "Made like a gun, goes like a bullet". Use of the brand name Royal Enfield was licensed by the Crown in 1890. The original Redditch, Worcestershire based company was sold to Norton-Triumph-Villiers (NVT) in 1968. Production ceased in 1970 and the company was dissolved in 1971.

In 1956 Enfield of India started assembling Bullet motorcycles under licence from UK components, and by 1962 were manufacturing complete bikes. Enfield of India bought the rights to use the Royal Enfield name in 1995. Royal Enfield production, based in Chennai, continues and Royal Enfield is now the oldest motorcycle brand in the world still in production with the Bullet model enjoying the longest motorcycle production run of all time.

Thanks for the info on the company, Paper.

The last Enfield I owned was a reproduction Civil War-era 3-band Enfield rifled musket. The original models were purchased from England and widely used by the Confederacy.

It fired a .58 Minie ball (about the size of the last part of your pinkie finger) with about 60 grains of black powder and was amazingly accurate and sported some very refined sights. It would shoot about a 10" group at 100 yards, probably better in the hands of a marksman with more skill, and was a very deadly weapon its day.

I forgot that I have a couple Enfields.. They're in .303 British..

One's a great wire wrap that's in even better shape than this one..

Very nice! In my opinion, the perfect recipe for a rifle: large bore, blued or Parkerized steel and lots and lots of wood.

Wow! That guy has some serious talent! Can you imagine how hard it would be to just keep your hand out of the wet paint while your doing the inside stripe? An artist :)

That's exactly what I was thinking.. If I were doing that, I'd have a lot of gold paint on my fingers.. :)

If I was doing that, I would spill the paint, and somehow hurt myself in the process.
