Lot Details
1954 Royal Enfield 349cc Bullet
Registration no. RTT 208
Frame no. G2/28310
Engine no. 4759
Reviving the Bullet name in 1948 Royal Enfield's newcomer featured an overhead-valve engine that housed its dry-sump oil tank in a compartment in the crankcase's rear, to which the four-speed gearbox was rigidly bolted in a form of semi-unitary construction. A long running, highly successful and much loved model, the Bullet could be had in road, trials or scrambles versions, with equipment and gearing to suit the application, and there was even a racer in the mid-1950s. Purhased in 1985 by the current vendors father, 'RTT 208' is offered for sale as a restoration project and is believed to be virtually complete but dismantled and awaiting re-assembly, the major components having been restored and repainted. Prospective bidders should satisfy themselves as to the completeness of the lot prior to bidding. Offered for sale with current V5C and original buff log book.
