I have a '76 350 Enfield bullet. Everythjing they say about Indian Enfields is true. Horrible, horrible, horrible thing. It can't take any beating, I am lukcy to get it out of the garage without it breaking down.
O. No. Wait.

This happened a lot too:
dozens and dozens of times. Stay tuned for my end of year 2013 crash compilation
Did it break? Yes. Due to my own fault (forgot a valve cap.... well, actually the PO did).
But I really did make these guys sweat in the woods:
Here you see me leading the pack:
and crash.... of course
In short: The Enfield has offered me hundreds and hundreds of hours of fun. I did not even have to recheck the timing once... (knock, knock, knock)
If high speeds is not your thing and if you are careful picking the right bike: Go for it. You will not regret it.
