Lot Details
c.1940 Royal Enfield 346cc Model C
Registration no. MZ 2666
Frame no. 2063
In 1936 Royal Enfield began phasing in a revised range with vertical engines, establishing the pattern for Enfield singles for the next 25 years. The first of these were the overhead-valve models G (350cc) and J (500cc), both of which came with coil ignition, dry sump lubrication with oil reservoir contained with the crankcase, and four-speed foot-change gearboxes. Later in the year the line-up expanded with the arrival of the basically similar 250cc overhead-valve S2 and 350cc sidevalve Model C. Alongside the overhead-valve CO, the Model C was supplied to Allied forces in WW2 but was not revived after the war. This ex-WD Model C was purchased by its late owner and first registered in 1948. Used regularly as his only transport, it has not been ridden on the road for the last 40 years and was last started approximately 10 years ago. The machine is offered with old-style continuation logbook (issued 1977) and is sold strictly as viewed.
