1951 Royal Enfield Twin 500 Needs new home (!!FOUND HOME!!)
« on: August 09, 2011, 04:59:21 AM »
My father wants to find a new home for this bike. It has been stored in his shed for over 30 years.  It ran and he rode it before it was stored. He does keep it lubricated and kicks it over often. As far as I know everything is still original. He is located in Sacramento, Ca. If you are interested email me.  [email protected]

Hi, nice bike.  I don't think our sponsor allows folks to sell bikes on this forum.

Now if you are looking for a new home for the bike and there is a re-homing fee maybe you could get by?

Good luck

I talked to the gentleman earlier today and he also has a Norton ES2 and a 48 Harley available.

They sound like very nice bikes and he will be taking photos of them all asap.

About $3k-4k for the RE and the Norton btw, he hasnt decided yet.

I of course..get first dibs <G>

That old RE is kind of a bobber now. In 1951 the 500 Twin was a top of the line model. They had a chrome tank and the same tool boxes fitted that the India production uses. The air filter/electrical box had a built in ammeter on those but it looks like some one fabricated something else to replace it and instaled it where the tool box used to go. It looks like it has an older tripple clamp mounted front fender. The seat probably is from a K-model Harley. The original would have either been a Lycette type or a dual seat. It has a lot of original stuff there but is definitely not complete or OEM original.

Like I said........As far as "I" know it is original. Never said it was original.
