In 1936 Royal Enfield began introducing a revised range featuring vertical engines, the first of which were the overhead-valve models G (350cc) and J (500cc). Later in the year the line-up expanded to include the basically similar 250cc overhead-valve S2 and 350cc sidevalve Model C. In 1940 the ‘WD’ (War Department) military Model C commenced delivery to UK armed forces and approximately 17,600 had been produced before the model was superseded by the overhead-valve WD/CO in 1942. By the war’s end more than 29,000 WD/C and WD/CO models had been supplied to Allied forces, some 2,800-or-so going to the RAF. Consisting of a frame, engine, gearbox and seat, this incomplete Royal Enfield is an ex-WD machine. The Royal Enfield Owners’ Club has confirmed that the frame formed part of a Model C despatched in January 1942, while the engine and gearbox are from one completed in June 1941. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
