    Xenu, Royal Enfield did not make Indian motorcycles!
    They made a Royal Enfield with a Indian tank badge, lots of difference!

    I owned one…. Left side foot brake and right side 4 speed tranny shifter.

    RB,

    I agree that it was badge engineering, but those bikes were Royal Enfields re-badged by the then legal owner of Indian, Floyd Clymer. The legal rights have changed hands so many times until we now have the Genuine Heritage Indians.

    How was your Enfield? The ones I rode with seemed quick.
