Like many other British motorcycle manufacturers, Royal Enfield's origins were in the bicycle trade. The Redditch company built its first powered vehicles - De Dion-engined tricycles and quadricycles - in the closing years of the 19th Century and its first motorcycle around 1900. By 1904 the firm was concentrating on car production, resuming motorcycle manufacture in 1910 with a v-twin Motosacoche-powered lightweight. The first 2¾hp (350cc) Enfield appeared in 1924 in overhead-valve and sidevalve versions, both of which used engines supplied by J A Prestwich. The JAP engine gave way to one of Royal Enfield's own manufacture for 1925, at which time the three-speed Sturmey Archer gearbox was standardised. An older restoration, this overhead-valve '350' Enfield was last taxed for the road in 2006 and will require re-commissioning prior to further use. Offered without reserve, the machine comes with an old-style continuation logbook, old-style V5 and V5C registration documents. No reserve.
