Royal Enfield ......Rare find

Recommended Posts

The other side apparently carried a duplicate of the arm of service serial, as per standard post-1941 practice.    '73' was an Infantry Brigade Company RASC in the 1944 listings.

Nice to see those 'other side' pictures Rik. Wish I'd seen them before. Always learning something new. Ron

I thought you'd know, Ron. That's you in the background playing on the bombsite in your school uniform, isn't it ?

Another trialled WD/C (This is Noel Pope on a C6125 bike) and a later model WD/C (C7182 ?) on an East Midlands RASC trial (October 1942)

Hi Ron

Good to chat a few days ago, the bike looks marvellous and I’m very much looking forward to seeing it in the flesh (after the ransom has been paid😉), very pleased with the end result. Thank you.

Thank you to Rik and Jan for their help too, without their help I wouldn’t be in a position to have the bike, Jan’s research into these early Royal Enfields is a benefit for everyone.

Ron, thanks again for restoring the bike and posting the progress here for others to share.

Ben
