    I am going for a vintage-military look with my MB, so I am trying to find authentic looking markings, and look what I found-- The Royal Enfield Flying Flea

    Very cool! I wonder how many are still out there?

    probably not a lot... it seems they were designed to be kinda disposable... more so than something like a truck or even a full-sized motorcycle. The article said that they made them so small so they could drop them out of airplanes (within a cage-thing and maybe a parachute...)
  5. Very similar to the BSA bantam , maybe smaller still.

    you have to have a certain number of minimum posts here in the forum... it might be twenty, maybe only fifteen... it's an anti-spam measure. Once you've been a member for a little bit longer, your links will work
