Thats what i was telling him, i think he made a great score. Now, we just need to figure out exactly what it is that we scored. Both bikes have no title is the only problem, the guy didnt have a clue what he had, he just wanted them out of his shop.

The Royal Enfield (Oilfield) is either a Meteor (500cc) or an Interceptor, (700cc?) Both are awesome machines and sound silky smooth. Wish I had one now.

The yammy is probably a XS or TX 650/750 (I dint look).
Suppose I better go somewhere and Intro. Nice finds.

Dude I dont have anypics but the beuty of the oilfield is the adjustable shock locations on the rear subframe (top shock mounts), A mate of mine has a meteor with struts i think, and it looks ace. You can go so far that it looks, right. Ill see him in a couple of weeks and get a pic, You dont need to mess with them too much to get looking good. And the engines really are shit hot. Oh and lots of componants are same as the bullet so easy to get.

Cromagnum, thanks for the post, the problem is my brothers to tall and the bike is just to short, so we need to add a few inches, but i would still love to see those pics if you get a chance.
