I have only ever posted on the Norton section on here as i have a 850 Commando. 'Onders' has just asked me to post here for general interest as I was asking the Norton guys about the 8" TLS and whether it is worth it for the Enfield.
Here is my Series 2 Interceptor, a bike I have wanted since I had the 'Go Interceptor' poster on my wall at University as I was getting in Britbikes in the mid eighties. I imported it in January this year from Mississauga in Canada and did it all (the paperwork) myself. It has Metal Profile forks that I will convert back to short Roadholders this winter. Other than that it is original except the rear shocks that should be shrouded and I will buy those over the next few months. It has cost me far too much so far but I am sure I would make money if I sold it but don't plan that.
I have sorted the clutch (remachined the drive face of the basket, new plates, new inner primary seals etc), rebuilt these forks, refitted the clocks and had them reconditioned by SpeedoRepairs (brilliant job), made special stainless fork top nuts at work on the CNC multiaxis m/c centre to mount the clocks, new seat cover, new tank decals, refitted battery plus tray, new handlebars, etc. Basic stuff. Engine seems fine, guy had rebuilt the top end with new rings. I have got it oil free now.
Will take it to the Manx GP this year. It looks the dogs bollocks. Ain't no Commando but is a nice cruiser and exhaust note is a beautiful rasp sound.
All the numbers match.
Here are a few piccies from the recent Interceptor rally that I rode it to here in the UK, my bike has 750 (not original but I like it) on the sides and is next to a series one and one piccy on my drive.
