IMG_6417

Do you like to feel the wind whistling through your handlebar mustache? Can you smoke a pipe and drink tea at the same time as riding? Then this is the classic motorbike for you.

A genuine 1966 Royal Enfield, with only 6000 km since being fully rebuilt from the ground up. This bike has none of that ‘big girls blouse’ electric start fuel injection fancy pants stuff you get on the new Royal Enfield’s – you have to the the old girl a ruddy good kick to get her going and a damn good squeeze to get her to stop. What this bike lacks in top end speed and disc brakes it more than makes up for in character and charm. There is no ‘thump’ like an original carb fed 500cc single cylinder.

Comes with:

Larger 18l fuel tank with luggage rack
5 speed gearbox (the only concession to modernity)
Removable rear pillion seat
Black leather Royal Enfield panniers
Upswept exhaust

Spare smaller fuel tank
Spare straight exhaust
Spare narrow bars
Full service kit

Lovingly cared for and recently serviced but it’s now time for a new classic bike project. R36 000 ono
