Win awards, keep as an investment, and or ride this beautiful 1943 Royal Enfield Bullet for pleasure. Beats other investments *and* you can ride your investment.
Matching-serial numbers and overhead valves make this a rare and highly-desirable motorcycle.
I could wait for the Quail next year to auction it, but need the space now.

The rest of the info:
Lovingly restored (mechanically) with pure factory parts. Engine rebuilt with all factory stock except modern chrome rings instead of old cast. This uses the reliable overhead-valve engine that was used for decades by Royal Enfield.
Things that connoisseurs ask about: This specific bike is registered with the Royal Enfield Historical Society and is confirmed to have been issued to the Royal Air Force during WW2. Some argue that the front fender is not original and that hand-shift was not standard on the Royal Air Force editions (which this is). I agree. Change 'em if you want. Yes the horn is original and it works.
Includes second 'original' transmission if one wants to have 100% concours for shows. Also includes a second engine of different displacement for parts if ever necessary.
New parts are plentiful at Hitchcock's online, catalog, and more. Enfield used this as the basis for future bikes for decades. Electrical, horn, lights all function as they should. It's old. It's fun,
And it is really fun to ride and handles surprisingly well in the hills of the Bay Area. Crowds gather when you show up.
I've ridden it for four years, have no room for it in my garage, and am tired of narrowly missing it every time I park my car. Buy it while I'm thinking this way.
