The Venerable Bullet
has been manufactured in India since 1955. This example is from 2005. The
50th Anniversary Model.
The Bullet 500 is a single cylinder 500cc "Thumper". I acquired this bike in late 2011 from the 2nd owner. With only 2700 miles on it and was barely broken in.
Previous Owners had installed the Front Disk Brake, GoldStar Style Exhaust, Avon RoadRunner Tires and a flat slide 30mm carburetor.
I changed the directional signals, brake light, and switched the seat from a single bicycle style to the stock bench seat.
