The functional design of the Bullet, also known as the G2, first appeared in 1947 in Redditch, Worcestershire, the home of Royal Enfield. From a company with a fine sporting reputation and the pioneer of dry-sump lubrication, the Bullet was the first motorcycle to incorporate swing arm suspension in a production machine. The Bullet was developed into one of the most successful trial machines of its day with Royal Enfield riders winning most of the major events. Later wins in British Classic circuit racing and flat track events in America emphasised the basic soundness of the design.
This motorcycle was born from Royal Enfield closing production in the late 1960s however due to the vast amount of excess parts they continued to build bikes for a further three or four years. In this time many parts were shipped to India and, we are informed, this bike was built as a demonstrator or catalogue 'chrome edition' bike in 1977, as such it was not been used whilst in the warehouse overseas. Built using all UK supplied Royal Enfield parts, this gorgeous 500cc Cafe Racer is presented in 'polished chrome'. This bike was imported to the UK and restored by an ex-Royal Enfield engineer and has covered less than 15 miles since being rebuilt in 2018. Originally manufactured on 1st January 1965, this Silver Bullet come Cafe Racer will certainly turn heads and with its 500cc engine, it has the performance to match. Presented with a UK V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate to prove roadworthy until April 2020, this is a fabulous bike offered without reserve.
Guide Price £3,500 - £6,000
