Classic Car Auctions says:

A retro-look 500cc Bullet...
The Royal Enfield Bullet was originally a British, overhead valve, single cylinder, four-stroke motorcycle made by Royal Enfield in Redditch, Worcestershire, but now produced by Royal Enfield Motors, the successor to the British company, at Chennai, Tamil Nadu, in India. The Bullet has the longest production run of any motorcycle having remained continuously in production since 1948. Both the'Royal Enfield' and 'Bullet' names derive from the company's links with the Royal Small Arms Factory in Enfield, London.
This particular Bullet is finished in Gloss Black and Chrome and has come from a collection of vehicles, but like the content of many collections, it has been little-used since its purchase and hence is now on the market. It's covered 4,200 miles in 20 years and has the last 6 MoTs but no history, as such, is available.
These later, Indian built, Bullets are not quick, but they are safe and predictable and represent good value for money. They have a great 'retro' feel and this 500 is said by the owner to ride well and is sure to give pleasure to its next rider.
