Lot 330: c.1946 Royal Enfield 346cc Model G

Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 October 2005)

Royal Enfield’s range for 1946 comprised three related models: G, J and C/CO. The G and J were of 350cc and 500cc respectively, and used the same overhead-valve engine but of different bore sizes, while the CO used the G motor and the C likewise but with side, rather than overhead, valves. Models G and J had a new telescopic front fork, whereas the C/CO retained the pre-war girders. All had cast-iron engine top-ends, plain big-end bearings, four-speed Albion gearboxes featuring Enfield’s characteristic neutral selector lever, and rigid frames. The vendor describes this Model G is as original and in running condition. The machine is offered with old-style buff logbook and Swansea V5, and we are advised that the registration mark is transferable.
