In the light of the new inventions of the super bikes, the legends like Enfield are forgotten. The real rider still admires the beauty and grace of such classics. Like all the vintage bikes Enfield is also known to be one of the best bikes that you can customize according to your ideas. A long wheel base and bigger tires provide increased stability and road grip, making it ideal for long distance travel. Its aristocratic black & gold livery and thumping engine beat gives goose bumps.
Few things are little ironic about this vintage bike that no one knows it’s actual manufacturing year. It appears on the road with number plate of year 1955, but there is no paperwork before 1973. So, officially it appears with the manufacturing year as 1973. It has a wide capacity of getting customize so most of the riders did their work to make it look like a huge ride on the road.
It has single cylinder, 4 stroke, Twin spark type of engine. This ride got a compression ratio of 8.5;1. Maximum power of 19.8 hp @ 5250 rpm and got a maximum torque of 28 Nm @ 4000 rpm with transistorized coil ignition system. It has a gearbox of 5 speed constant mesh and fuel capacity of 13.5 Ltr. It has telescopic, 35 mm forks, 130mm travel front suspension and twin shock absorbents with 5-step adjustable p reload, 80 mm travel rear suspension. This giant weighs 180 kg with 90% fuel and oil.
Its not a bike, its beast. It doesn’t make a sound, it roars. It’s not for commuting, it’s for conquering. And when you touch that attitude, you know what it takes to live the life quarter mile at a time. Keys, toolkit, a dozen T-shirts, a pair of pants, a backpack is all you need to go on with life on road. Don’t forget to include this one before you hit the road. It can make the journey memorable. Good things about the classics like this is that they can bear the pressure of the long journey and hot roads. It really is an excellent suggestion if you are looking for a ride with a classic touch.
It does not possess the power of modern age bikes that is for sure but somehow it feels like you have gone back in time and it can give you the fun riding of a life time and the sound of the single cylinder thumping along always makes you smile. It gives confidence and comfort to the rider and adds up the factor of being a part of old times.
This bullet 350 has a great capacity of new customs and it did really evolve all these years. In this modern age it has come up with few technical developments like an incredible fuel economy of 85 mpg and built to meet Euro III and California emissions standards. Despite all these changes, the good thing about this ride is that it is still coming in the same old classic design that actually attracts the riders to buy this exceptional piece.

The Bienville Legacy is powered by the 185bhp Motus V4, and a 300bhp racing version will also be available later!
Bienville Studios, a design and engineering shop based in New Orleans, in the US, which specialises in motorcycle innovation, has unveiled its brand-new motorcycle – the Bienville Legacy – which was commissioned by the American Design and Master-Craft Initiative (ADMCi). “This work completes two years of active design and fabrication, on the heels of over eight years of planning and design exploration. The result is an entirely new vehicle, reinventing how motorcycles function from the ground up,” says a press note from Bienville.
Designed by JT Nesbitt (best known for his design work for the Confederate Wraith, and G2 Hellcat), the Bienville Legacy features styling cues that seem to come from the American Wild West, mixed with 1930s sci-fi. Yeah, well. The girder-type front fork works as the design’s centrepiece and all parts seem to be beautifully machined. “I’ve waited a long time to make a design statement like this and I’m proud to be doing it in partnership with ADMCi,” says Nesbitt. “As our first commission, it was crucial that the master-craftsman we engaged hit it out of the park,” adds Jim Jacoby, Founder and CEO, ADMCi.
The Bienville Legacy is powered by a V4 engine – the made-in-America Motus MV4R. While this engine produces 185 horsepower in stock, normally aspirated form, Bienville also plan to offer a “racing” version of the Legacy, which will get a supercharged, 300bhp version of the Motus V4. The chassis, made of chrome-molybdenum tubing, uses the V4 as a stressed member and the bike rides on 17-inch carbon composite wheels.

Got your Halloween bash planned down to the last motion-activated mummy? Great, but what about ice for that bubbling cauldron of witches’ brew? Boring bagged ice is a buzzkill. Don’t despair: There’s still time to freeze a trio of spooky cubes for filling your punch bowl.
These bewitching ice creations don’t require fancy tools or sinisterly-shaped ice trays. A few drops of black food coloring, a beaker of blood-hued juice and an oversized edible eyeball are easy to prep and will give your guests—and their drinks—the chills as the night creeps on.
BLOOD ‘N BONE
Do you prefer your bloody libations O positive or B negative? Blood orange juice serves as an uncanny substitute for the real thing in these devilish “blood” and cream cocktail cubes. Pair them with the citrus- and Aperol-spiked Boat House Punch and watch as they melt into eerie red oblivion.
Blood & Cream Cubes
- Blood orange juice (or pomegranate juice)
- Coconut milk (or half and half)
Fill an ice cube tray with blood orange juice until half of the way full. Freeze until the liquid is mostly solid, then pour in coconut milk until full. (A little co-mingling of the blood and cream layers is fine). Freeze again until complete solid.
Stand back: Ghoulish grabbers reach out for you from the punch bowl, bobbing just below the murky surface. Float the ink-black appendages in spiced Jack-o-Lantern Punch, a fitting partner for wicked drinking deeds.
Black Ice Hands
- 2 powder-free latex gloves
- Black food coloring
Fill each glove with water to the wrist, then drop in 3-4 drops of black food coloring and shake glove to disperse the dye. Once the water turns black, tie each glove off tightly and place in the freezer. After the gloves are fully frozen, carefully cut them away from the ice with a pair of sharp scissors.
Nothing screams Halloween like a cycloptic punch bowl. Serve this king-sized evil eye inside the double rum–based Rainbow Planter’s Punch and toast to a party well-spooked.
Eyeball Punch Ring
- Glass bowl (1 quart)
- Black gumdrop (or black jellybean)
- Pineapple ring
- Thin red licorice strings
Slice a thin round of kiwi and cut out the white middle portion. Slice the top off of a black gumdrop and place it in the center of the kiwi as the pupil. Place the kiwi in the bottom of the bowl and layer a pineapple ring over it. Cut thin slits around the edge of the pineapple ring and fit three to five thin licorice strings inside them, running the licorice up the sides of the bowl and draping over the edge.
Place the bowl carefully in the freezer and gently fill with 1/3 inch of water, just enough to reach the middle of the pineapple. Place a small weighted bowl on top of the pineapple to keep the fruit in place. Freeze for 25 minutes and then add more water to nearly the top of the small weighted bowl, being careful not to displace the licorice strings around the sides. Freeze for several hours until solid.
Remove the small bowl from the middle of the ice ring and fill in the remaining hole with water. Freeze again until solid. To remove the ice ring, run the bottom of the bowl under warm water until the ice slides out.
Dust off your party equipment. Start stocking the bar. Call—or text—your pals: It’s Party Season, the perfect time of year to show off your well-honed hosting skills and bring all your favorite people together.
