Introduced in 1956, the all-new Crusader 250 was unusual in having a unitary construction engine at a time when most British machines still employed a separate gearbox, and in placing the camshaft drive outboard of the primary chain on the engine’s left-hand side. The gears were housed in their own compartment at the rear of the streamlined crankcase casting, which also contained the engine oil tank in typical ’Enfield fashion. The cycle parts consisted of an open-type swinging-arm frame, telescopic front fork and 17” wheels at front and rear. Over the next decade a number of variations was produced on the Crusader theme, culminating in the Continental GT of 1964. This incomplete and partially dismantled Crusader Sports is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
