Lot 438: Enfield Bullet

Grand Palais Sale, Bonhams (7 February 2013)

Royal Enfield revived the Bullet name in 1948 for a sensational new 350 sports bike with swinging-arm rear suspension. The newcomer featured an overhead-valve engine that housed its dry-sump oil tank in a compartment in the rear of the crankcase, to which the four-speed gearbox was rigidly bolted in a form of semi-unitary construction. Production of both the 350cc and 500cc Bullets ceased in 1962, though the model was already being manufactured under licence in India where it continues in production in much-improved form today. The Indian Bullets were marketed under the 'Enfield' name at first before the company acquired the rights to the 'Royal Enfield' title in 1995. This Indian-manufactured Bullet is offered with copies of its UK V5 registration documents and Certificat de Cession d'un Vehicle.
