1942 Royal Enfield WD CO. Information sort.


Recommended Posts

Trying to find out information for a chap. He has a Royal Enfield CO, on log book it is first registered in 1946, but from the contract number on the bike he knows it must have been before Feb 1942.

The numbers on the bike are:

Contract number: C12425

Frame : M6794 & M244

Engine (overhead valve) : 6794


I've attached a picture of the bike, the RN are just stickers added.


The owner hasn't managed to find out anymore history, the contract order doesn't give details of where the bike went. We can't see any other trace of colour under the black paint, so no clues there.


Would this bike have been army green originally, or were some made in black?

Is there any way to trace it's military registration or history?
