Good stuff! Interesting to hear about the manufactory over there. In fact... they still make Royal Enfield Motorcycles.... the joke is when you fire them up for the first time, the exhaust smells like CURRY. ;-)

As I read this, I've come to realize that the "Abley" I had procured a while back could very well have been made by anyone over there and very simply branded with peel and stick transfers. No chainring branding whatsoever.

Glad you had the chance for an Holiday. I could use one myself!

I'd like to buy a classic roadster cycle but I don't know where (like hero or atlas or another brand of india or china). I'm writing from italy.
can you help me?


Good brands include BSA , Hercules , Hero and will set you back by at most 100 $ (more like 60 $) mind you though , they are not modern at all , so no quick releases , cotterless cranks and advanced decals , most will last 50+ years if maintained at all .If you need help or info regarding the cycling scene you can contact me at agambir.bhatia@gmail.com
