rare Royal Enfield engine for sale on eBay

There is currently a rare Model D engine for sale on eBay UK:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BSA-Royal-Enfield-350-Side-Valve-Engine-Cylinder-Crank-Cases/264320190116?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D541871d8695641fdb5f9434faf0d24a3%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D264320190116%26itm%3D264320190116%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2045573&_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042

This is the only surviving engine from the two contracts for militarised Model D motorcycles (C/7375 and C/7945). A similar motorcycle was recently featured here.

It would be great if this engine could be saved! Anyone...?

Jan

Re: rare Royal Enfield engine for sale on eBay

Hi gents.

It was me that purchased the engine.

I hope to rebuild the engine to its former originality.

Ultimately I am looking to build a complete bike!

If anyone has any spares or can point me in the right direction please do let me know.

Carl, I will drop you an email.

I will post some more pictures once it arrives.

Re: rare Royal Enfield engine for sale on eBay

Ron, thanks for the offer. What I meant is that I'd have bought it if there was no interest, Cambridge isn't far from me, in fact I'll be working there next week. I like to have a 'wild card' project in the wings, the current one being a 1956 Indian Trailblazer (RE Super Meteor really!) I will be watching your rebuild Steve, good luck!
REgards, Mark

Re: rare Royal Enfield engine for sale on eBay

Hitchcock's had a couple of Trailblazer projects recently and I was toying with the idea. I'm in the "Indian Riders Club" but not so keen on foot clutch riding. But I do have enough on my plate and my easy to ride Indian special anyway! Ron

Re: rare Royal Enfield engine for sale on eBay

Nice...I had a couple of Constellations way back, along with many other Enfields that included a couple of unusual ones...

I still consider them to be under rated by most...Ian

Re: rare Royal Enfield engine for sale on eBay

Yes, the specification on these "Indians" was quite advanced for the time, Monobloc carb, SR2 magneto, sensible prop stand, long swinging arm (the UK bikes only got this for the Interceptors in 1963!) 18" rear wheel, all with an engine that was basically a single carb Constellation. I also have a Chief project so quite a bit to be going on with! And if you really want to go down the authentic period looking route there are a host of US made Indian badged accessories to collect.
