My buddy Bryan Wood is looking to sell a Bullet 500 – you may remember him from a guest appearance in the Beater Olympics as well as his coverage of The Desert Race. I figured I’d just let him take it from here:
It is with some sadness that I offer up my late brother-in-law’s 2010 Royal Enfield Bullet up for sale. Bought as a gift for him on his 40th birthday in 2010, he did not live to see his 50th and barely had time to ride it before a rare liver disease made him too weak. The clock reads just 1,718 miles, and except for a few spots in the chrome from occasionally sitting outside, it is a new bike. It is ready to ride (slowly) home while looking fabulous.
I personally rebuilt the brake master cylinder and replaced a bit of rubber fuel line which had dried out from lack of use, so it is ready to go. It was almost always stored indoors, so the barely worn tires are still perfectly serviceable even after 10 years. Just last year I borrowed it and put about 200 miles on it myself, but it does not suit my size and style of riding.
These bikes are great for the rider who wants a great looking motorcycle, but only wants to cruise around at a relaxed scooter pace. You are not likely to find a closer to new Indian Enfield that isn’t just a left over at a dealer being sold for the new MSRP. Locally around Los Angeles, new ones are selling for nearly $6,000, but you can get this one for $4,000 right now, with delivery within 60 miles of downtown Los Angeles. Clean title and currently registered in California.
An added bonus, this is actually a 49 state bike with no ugly charcoal evaporative canister on it, but since the original owner brought it into the state it is legal, without having to rack up 7,500 miles to be considered used. It also comes with the only just released Haynes service and repair manual, as well as a helmet.
The bike is currently located in Culver City, California, and you can contact me, Bryan Wood, to view it via email – Parkwood60@yahoo.com
Editor’s Note: Bryan used to contribute to RideApart, and one of his pieces for them was a review of this exact bike. He has since improved the bike since that review and will also be adding some fork oil before the buyer picks it up. More photos are available at this link.
