In 1893. the Enfield Manufacturing Company Ltd was registered to
manufacture bicycles. By 1899. Enfield were producing quadricycles
with De Dion engines and experimenting with a heavy bicycle frame
fitted with a Minerva engine clamped to the front downtube. In
1912. the Royal Enfield Model 180 sidecar combination was
introduced with a 770 cc V-twin JAP engine which was raced
successfully in the Isle of Man TT and at Brooklands. In 1911. br/>prior to the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Enfield added
the word 'Royal' to its name. They supplied large numbers of
motorcycles to the British War Department and also won a motorcycle
contract for the Imperial Russian Government. Enfield used its own
225cc two-stroke single and 425cc V-twin engines. They also
produced an 8 hp motorcycle sidecar model fitted with a Vickers
machine gun. In 1921. Enfield developed a new 976cc twin. and in
1924 launched the first Enfield four-stroke 350cc single using a
JAP engine. In 1928. Royal Enfield began using the bulbous 'saddle'
tanks and centre-spring girder front forks; one of the first

depression years of the 1930's. the company was able to rely on
reserves to keep going. In 1931. Albert Eddie. one of the founders
of the company. died and his partner R. W. Smith died soon
