(Enfıeld)mechanıcs ın Turkey???

Hi there,

I am on my way from Delhi to Holland on an İndıan Enfıeld (Bullet 350) and I am in desperate need for a good servıce.

Can anybody advise me on a decent (Enfield)mechanic ın Turkey, who knows about classıcal machines??? At this moment İ am in southeast Turkey, working my way up to Istanbul via Ankara.

Thanks a bunch for replying (asap)!

BTW, Im doing thıs trip without the Carnet. Therefore İ had to put the bike on a train in Pakistan, but İ could work my way illegally through İran, hahaha! İf anybody needs advıce, just mail me!

Olaf from Holland

I had a broken rearwheelhub near Adana when I traveled with my Enfield from India back to Germany. In Adana was a guy that builds up old BMWs and was a genius with my Enfield (He welded the greycast (!) of the Hub and it work for more than 5000km!).

His name, or the name of his shop, was Enver Motors. I'm not sure if he's stil there. He was located around the airport.

If this does not help, contact the guys from ..:: OMM - One More Mile Riders ::... They are turkish motorcyclists and very nice (and can help you).

Good luck!
