Lot 109: Royal Enfield 346cc Model G

Important Collectors' Motorcars & Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 June 2012)

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. Purchased by its late owner in 1990, this Model G is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. The machine comes with Swansea V5C document. No reserve.
