Looking to buy in Seattle
« on: November 13, 2007, 05:49:22 PM »
Hi and greetings, moving from Atlanta to Seattle in Jan 2008 and would like to buy a Royal Enfield when there. Apart from the dealerships, does anyone know of any good used ones for sale ?
I like all the range, but my choice would be for a military one. Thanks in advance and look forward to owning one soon.
Currently I own 60's and 70's Austin Minis but would like an Enfield also.
Are there any good clubs in Seattle WA  or Vancouver BC ?

Cheers- Spencer

They pop up fairly frequently on the local Craigslist.
http://seattle.craigslist.org

Here is one currently for sale in the nearby city of Everett:

If you can't find a used one, the guy to go to for a new one is Vince in Olympia (just 60 miles from Seattle). 

An Bullet will be a cool match to your Minis!

Do not stop, do not pass go, call, write, e-mail or drive to Vinces Motorcycle Store. He is one of the best dealers we have ever had and is not far from Seattle at all. He services that area and has a great reputation. He may have a used Enfield as well from time to time.

Thanks guys for all your help- I think a visit to Vince's  will be in order when I get there and also look on Craigslist
Here is my '66 Cooper I will be bringing if I don't sell before I leave

Agreed on the Bullet being a good choice-

Really appreciate all your help and look forward to getting involved when I move.

Now that's a sweet looking car!  I think you might not legally be allowed to own such a car and not ALSO own a Bullet...   :P

Well it's not inSeattle and it's not a military but what a deal still under $3,000 and set up to perfection probably over $5,500-$6,000 not counting countless hours meticulous labor.
