Lot Details
1928 Royal Enfield 225cc Model 203 Sport
Engine no. Z 809
Like many other motorcycle manufacturers, Royal Enfield's origins were in the bicycle trade. The Redditch company built its first powered vehicles - De Dion-engined tricycles and quadricycles - in the closing years of the 19th Century and its first motorcycle around 1900. By 1904 the firm was concentrating on car production, resuming motorcycle manufacture in 1910 with a v-twin Motosacoche-powered lightweight. In 1913 came the famous 3hp v-twin that did so well at Brooklands and the TT. After 1919, the 3hp was phased out, leaving just two models at opposite ends of the motorcycling spectrum: an 8hp sidecar tug and a 225cc two-stroke lightweight. Periodically revised and updated, the latter would remain a fixture of the Enfield range up to WW2. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, this incomplete Enfield lightweight is expected to posses a Swansea V5C document by time of sale.
