1914 Royal Enfield
« on: November 27, 2012, 05:09:52 PM »
Anyone looking to sell a 1914 Royal Enfield? This is a classic for sure, but I have never seen one outside of a museum. Any idea how much one would go for if it is in running condition?

I don't have the foggiest idea where one could be found.
If it was in running condition I would guess it would be worth more than $60,000 and with good reason.

Most bikes that old are not only rare but need a good full time machinist to custom build replacement parts just to get it into running condition.
Those guys don't come cheap.

$60K wow, that's alot of money. Dream killer. Maybe one that isn't running would be a better way to get into that. Too bad parts are not readily available like the late model ones.

There is one still showing up on Ebay that apparently didn't sell. Here is a price showing up on there for 21,995, but I don't know if it was sold or that was the highest bid and didn't make the cut.

That is a sweet one! Running and registered. Wonder if that was 21k pounds or dollars. I'll just hop in my submarine and cruise on over to the UK to see it.

We could have lt wgt big cheese pop on over to see if it is worth it.

Of course it doesn't seem to have the "character" his current RE has so he might not think much of it.  ;)

Only just seen this thread. My mother lives about 20 miles from Ashford!

Would I get to run it around until you come to get it or I crate it for you?
