Royal Enfield Meteor Minor 500 twin

Here's the new project: it belonged to my old friend John Robinson, technical editor of Performance Bikes. I plan to restore it along the lines John would have chosen: better suspension, brakes and ground clearance, more comfortable riding position.
Early days, but it should turn out to be a handsome beast. Styling, if I can afford it, will resemble a Series 2 US export Interceptor – small tank, chrome and upswept pipes.


  1. Looking forward to this Rupe. The Reddich Resurrection.

  2. Ayup Mick! I thought no one ever read this any more! But I'm looking forward to it too. It's already got new wheels and forks on.
