1965 Royal Enfield 248cc Continental GT
Registration no. JPF 489C
Frame no. 70866
Engine no. GT16228
The Royal Enfield Crusader's ultimate development - the Continental GT - arrived in November 1964. For his £270 the GT owner got clip-on handlebars, rear-set footrests, a racing-style glassfibre fuel tank and 'bacon slicer' brake cooling discs up front, in addition to an extra 1.5bhp. With its café racer styling, brisk performance and excellent handling, the GT was every young motorcyclist's dream and a well-deserved success for the Redditch concern. This example was purchased circa 1985 and kept in dry storage for approximately the next 21 years before undergoing a chassis and engine overhaul. A new V5C registration document was applied for in 2006. Running very nicely at this point in time, the Continental was not used regularly and has been back in dry storage for the last few years. Presented in good clean condition, 'JPF 489C' should require little more than a new battery, fresh fuel/oil and a carburettor clean to return it to good running order. The machine is offered with instruction manual, parts book, workshop manual, sundry bills and V5C registration document.
