    • FE Cat descRoyal Enfield was the brand name under which The Enfield Cycle Company Limited of Redditch, Worcestershire, sold motorcycles, bicycles, lawnmowers and stationary engines. The Enfield Cycle Company also used the brand name Enfield without Royal with the first Royal Enfield motorcycle built in 1901. They are responsible for the design and original production of the Royal Enfield Bullet, the longest living motorcycle design in history. During the period when Royal Enfield closed production in the late 1960s, so many parts had been manufactured in Redditch that they continued to build bikes for a further three of four years. Some of the parts were bought by an Indian entrepreneur who shipped them to India where a number of bikes were assembled using the parts manufactured in the UK. It is believed that this bike is derived from this time. Although maybe not assembled by Royal Enfield in the UK, the parts used to assemble the bike were indeed manufactured by Royal Enfield in the UK. This specific motorcycle was used as the catalogue or demonstrator bike, it spent many years standing in a warehouse and was hardly ever used. It was imported to the UK a few years ago by an ex-Royal Enfield engineer who then totally restored the bike to a fully working condition. Presented today in lovely polished condition, this trials variation, single-seater, 350cc Royal Enfield is a very handsome machine with ample chromework to keep clean! This motorcycle is supplied with a V5C registration document and MoT test certificate until November 2019 and the vendor has not used it since the rebuild, hence the 11 miles odometer reading.

    • FE Cat descRoyal Enfield is a brand with the tag of 'the oldest global motorcycle brand in continuous production'. First produced in 1901, Royal Enfield is the oldest motorcycle brand in the world still in production with the Bullet model enjoying the longest motorcycle production run of all time. During the period that Royal Enfield closed production (the mid to late 1960s), so many parts had been manufactured in Redditch that they continued to build bikes. Some of the parts were shipped to India where a number of bikes were assembled using the parts manufactured in the UK, it is believed that this bike is derived from this time, although maybe not assembled by Royal Enfield in the UK, the parts used to assemble the bike were manufactured by Royal Enfield in the UK. This specific motorcycle was used as the catalogue or demonstrator bike and has been standing in a warehouse ever since. First manufactured in January 1977, this trials variation is a single-seater 350cc and presents in very good condition. Imported in 2018, it was then totally restored to a fully working condition. VOSA and the DVLA were supplied with sufficient documentary information for them to certify the year of manufacture before registering the bike for use in the UK. The importer then sold the bike to a collector from whom the present owner bought the bike in June 2019. This is a machine with ample chromework and is supplied with an MoT test certificate which expires on 16th November 2019. While exempt from an MoT test certificate and road tax, it is confirmed as 'road worthy', not just a pretty face. With light use since a rebuild the odometer reads just 39 miles. This is a great looking bike offered without reserve. Guide Price £3,000 - £5,000

    • ModelCafe Racer (500cc)
    • FE Cat descThe functional design of the Bullet, also known as the G2, first appeared in 1947 in Redditch, Worcestershire, the home of Royal Enfield. From a company with a fine sporting reputation and the pioneer of dry sump lubrication, the Bullet was the first motorcycle to incorporate swing arm suspension in a production machine. The Bullet was developed into one of the most successful trial machines of its day with Royal Enfield riders winning most of the major events. Later wins in British classic circuit racing and flat track events in America emphasised the basic soundness of the design. This motorcycle was born from Royal Enfield closing production in the late 1960s however due to the vast amount of excess parts they continued to build bikes for a further three or four years. In this time many parts were shipped to India and, we are informed, this bike was built as a demonstrator or catalogue 'chrome edition' bike in 1977, as such it was not been used whilst in the warehouse overseas. Built using all UK supplied Royal Enfield parts, this gorgeous 500cc Cafe Racer is presented in 'polished chrome'. This bike was imported to the UK and restored by an ex-Royal Enfield engineer and has covered less than 15 miles since being rebuilt in 2018. Originally manufactured on 1st January 1965, this Silver Bullet come Cafe Racer will certainly turn heads and with its 500cc engine it has the performance to match. Presented with a UK V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate to prove road worthy until April 2020, this is a fabulous bike offered without reserve. Guide Price £3,500 - £6,000
