Property of a deceased's estate
1958 Royal Enfield 346cc Bullet Project
Registration no. NCT 846
Frame no. 42341
Engine no. C 243
Royal Enfield revived the Bullet name in 1948 for a sensational new 350cc sports bike with swinging-arm rear suspension, an innovation at the time. Flying in the face of convention, Enfield chose to debut the new frame at the Colmore Cup trial, and the Bullet went on to demonstrated its effectiveness by forming part of Britain's winning Trophy team at that year's ISDT. Enfield's newcomer featured an overhead-valve engine that housed its dry-sump oil tank in a compartment in the crankcase's rear, to which the four-speed gearbox was rigidly bolted in a form of semi-unitary construction. A long running, highly successful and much loved model, the Bullet could be had in road, trials or scrambles versions, with equipment and gearing to suit the application, and there was even a road-racer in the mid-1950s. This incomplete Bullet is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. The machine comes with a V5 registration document and two workshop manuals. No reserve.
