Description:

The first automotive vehicles with the Royal Enfield name wereproduced in 1898 - a quadricycle with a De Dion-Bouton 2.75 hpengine. However, it was not until 1910 that Royal Enfieldestablished their name as a world-beating motorcycle manufacturer.In 1910 came the first of the famous Enfield V-twins, initiallywith a Motosacoche 344 cc 2 3/4hp (2 kW) engine and later withEnfields own engine. It was due to the success and reputation ofthe v-twin models that enabled Royal Enfield to be called upon tosupply motorcycles to the British War department and also for theImperial Russian Government from 1914-1918. When originally roadtested by Motor Cycling magazine on 20th August 1912 the writer wasmightily impressed after his ride from London to Worcester on aModel 160 via the Edgware Road. "Along the busy thoroughfaresmentioned, I was able to make good progress, and I can say at oncethat I have never ridden a machine more handy in traffic or on theopen road than the Enfield... there was no shock from the chaintransmission and the engine accelerated wonderfully." Oncesuccessfully in Worcester the exhausted rider simply: "pulled upfor tea, and glad I was to sip the refreshing beverage, whilestrawberries added daintiness to the feast." It''s quite hard toimagine MCN journalists indulging in such luxuries pulled over onthe A43.This beautifully authentic 325cc Motosacoche engined Model 160was first registered in Cornwall on 11th May 1911 to a Mr JohnTheodore Taylor of Penzance. An original buff log book details thesuccession of owners. This Royal Enfield underwent a detailedrestoration approximately 15 years ago. Described by the vendor asa ''useable pioneer'' he undertook the 2011 Pioneer run, Sandown Parkto Briton with only the minor of problems. This Model 160 issupplied with a V5C registration document, old MoT testcertificates and Sunbeam Motor Cycle Club pioneer certificate ofauthenticity. It is not often that such an important and usablepiece of Royal Enfield history comes available for sale.
