Maintenance history.

Anybody interested in buying the Schwinn?

Currently, I am in Delhi hanging out getting ready to move on so the bike has to go. The risk level has dropped considerably, however the fun factor has as well so I am looking to get to Asia as soon as possible. I’ve got time and t.v. so no huge rush, but it is a stress in my life and I can’t have that. Not sure about picking up another bike in Asia, I’ll have to do some research first.

Otherwise, just relaxing in Delhi.

Royal Enfield Bullet (Schwinn) – List of repairs

Friday, April 25th, 2008


This will be an updated list as things break, wear out, are stolen, or added. Hopefully it will be a short list. Add about $50R per litre for petrol and about 25 kms per liter. Biking it is not cheap, but I figure it would come out to about the same cost if I were to go Ac class on the train and took taxis to hotels and sites.

Prices are in Rupees. $40R = $1US
