Lot Details
1948 Royal Enfield 346cc Model G
Registration no. JRH 324
Frame no. 7478
Engine no. G10995
Royal Enfield's range for 1946 comprised three related models: G, J and C/CO. The G and J were of 350cc and 500cc respectively and used the same overhead-valve engine but of different bore sizes, while the CO used the G motor and the C likewise but with side, rather than overhead, valves. Models G and J had a new telescopic front fork whereas the C/CO retained the pre-war girders. All had cast-iron engine top-ends, plain big-end bearings, four-speed Albion gearboxes featuring Enfield's characteristic neutral selector lever, and rigid frames. Purchased by the current vendor in 1995, this Model G was stripped down for restoration and partially rebuilt before being stripped again. Other projects then took priority and 'JRH 324' remains in this state today. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine is offered with dating certificate, owners' club correspondence and its original buff logbook.
