1963 Royal Enfield Continental. 250cc OHV Single. VGC. V5C Present. Tidy Bike

For auction here is a 1963 Royal Enfield Continental made to look like its more famous brother the GT. This machine has its current V5C present and is on a transferable registration, although the plate is not valuable. It just shows that its probably its original number. The machine will be tax exempt at this age, but not MOT exempt. This machine has not been used for a while, but is in decent condition and was probably someones pride and joy at some point. I am told that when the genuine GTs were launched in 1965 / 66 you simply could not get hold of one quick enough as there was a waiting list and everyone produced was sold in no time, so aspiring youths who perhaps could not wait, or could not afford a brand new machine at the time would make there older Continentals look like a GT by adding on the cafe racer bits. This was a period thing they did at the time, and so this machine has probably resembled a GT for a long time. It is however the slightly earlier Continental, which in its self is a very rare machine and would have had the jelly mould tank fitted originally. They are very similar machines and it is only really the styling touches and state of tune that differs between them. However, one of the few things that the earlier machines have that I think are a lot better is the original big clocks. This machine has its original Smiths chronometric Speedometer and Smiths Chronometric Rev counter fitted which in todays market are probably worth about £500 on there own. T...
