Paul sayssays:

Real Classic - - Royal Enfield 500 -

‘These are the cur­rent racer and its pre­de­ces­sor – now a quick road bike! The 350 racer’s en­gine is ba­si­cally a Fury en­gine short stroked to 350cc and ca­pa­ble of 9500rpm. It’s fit­ted in a Crusader type rolling chas­sis and if I had been in charge at RE, it would have been of­fered as a big brother to the 250 Con­ti­nen­tal GT, and I would have called it the Con­ti­nen­tal TT!’

Life­long Brit­bike en­thu­si­ast Paul runs Per­for­mance Clas­sics in Car­marthen­shire, and of­fers restora­tion ser­vices for all kinds of old mo­tor­cy­cles. Re­builds, tun­ing and wheel-build­ing are all done in-house. 01550 777608 / 07909 740160 / phen­shaw@bt­in­ter­
