VINTAGE PRE WAR c.1924 ROYAL ENFIELD GIRDER FORK 225cc 2 1/4HP BARN FIND PROJECT
Price: £1 550 ≈ $1952 ≈ €1806
Item location: Chingford, UK
Seller notes: “Recent barn find Royal Enfield 2 stroke from around 1924. This is the slightly rarer model having the 2 speed "Heel & Toe" foot change type gear. Engine and gearbox turns over okay but the chains are very rusted so makes it difficult. Has the original Lucas magneto and Brown and Barlow carburettor still fitted. What you see is what you get here. There are no mudguards or rear carrier rack. No chain cover. No saddle, no footrests / footboards. No rear brake block / pedal and it will need handlebar control levers.”

This is a recent barn find and is being sold for restoration
There is no reserve on this sale and the bike will be soldto the highest bidder!
No documentation with the bike sadly
Engine number- 16012Frame number- 14462
This is the lesser seen model with the rarer 2 speed "Heel & Toe"type foot change gear unit instead of the more commonlyseen models with the "Coffee grinder" type handle fittedto the top frame tube.
Frame, forks, engine, gearbox, handlebars and petrol tankare all in very solid order given the time its been in the barn!It mostly just has surface rust.
Also has its original Lucas magneto and Brown & Barlow carb still
The wheels will definitely need rebuilding as the rims and spokesare very badly rusted
Will need the following parts-
Mudguards, rear carrier rack frame, primary drive / magneto chain guard, rear chain guard, foot rest bar or footboards, Saddle, rear brake block unit and pedal, exhaust silencer, rear stand and handlebar control levers.
I'm sure there will be other odds and ends it needs but these are the itemsI could think of so far.
Overall, this will make a lovely pre war girder fork machine which would also be Banbury eligible! Just needs the time and knowhow putting in to get her right again.
