Lot Details
1936 Royal Enfield 346cc Model G Project
Registration no. FAS 642
Frame no. 23621
Engine no. G2585
Royal Enfield of Redditch manufactured a range of bewildering and fast-changing variety in the 1930s. 'Slopers' with inclined engines were a feature of the decade's early years, and then in 1936 a revised range with vertical engines began to be phased in, establishing the pattern for Enfield singles for the next 25 years. The first of these new machines were the overhead-valve models G (350cc) and J (500cc) both of which came with coil ignition, dry sump lubrication with oil reservoir contained within the crankcase, and four-speed foot-change gearboxes. The vendor purchased this Model G as a restoration project at Bonhams' Harrogate Sale in November 2002 (Lot 357). Described as '90% complete', the machine is offered in a dismantled state and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot.
