Hello , i have purchased a royal enfield from a insurance company , it was stolen and recovered
and need to find out the year , as i have to go to dept of transport ,
then the local police to get a surrogate engine number ,
they want a year , and rather and guess 1995 ish , i am here for any help ,
it has on the right side of the steering neck stamped 3B5 27__D ( i left out 2 numbers on purpose )
it is also stamped on the inner primary case ,
The engine number has been filed off , and compliance plates removed
right side gear shift , plastic indicators and key locks in the toolboxes
ignition switch in right toolbox

Its a 1993 OR 2003 500 Bullet - with the ignition switch in the toolbox it will be a 1993,
