1938 Royal Enfield S2 project bike – SOLD

Engine Number: tba

A fairly complete Royal Enfield project bike. This is a light-weight 250cc OHV from 1938 in original condition (apart from one primed rear mudguard and a new exhaust). It includes an original tank and a restored chrome painted tank (not a new or replica tank). Kevin had been slowly developing this project for over 20 years.

The S2 was the deluxe model 250cc produced by the Royal Enfield factory. It includes a Terry seat, luggage rack, rear registration and tail light plate, headlight, toolbox, Smiths speedo, horn and horn button, etc.

This will be a great restoration/rebuild project for someone wanting a reasonably rare and early, original, Royal Enfield. Historically, this bike was manufactured just as war was breaking out in Europe and at a time when the manufacture of Deluxe motorcycles in England was about to give way to the war efforts.

It includes the parts photographed plus some additional spares (photos still to be uploaded) and a 1938 Royal Enfield catalogue.

This bike was sold in October, 2014 to a lovely guy who is going to restore it and love it.

1939 Rudge ‘Ulster’

engine no: U294

Manufactured by Rudge-Whitworth, the ‘Ulster’ was essentially a racing motorcycle turned out as a production bike. It is a 500cc, single OHV. This one was produced in the last year of the model’s production.

This motorcycle still rides well.
