Naah. Royal Enfield two strokes were always far more interesting than those four-stroke thingies. Theyíll never catch on.

Ha ha! I am assembling the parts for a 1939 Royal Enfield G (G39) which is the all alloy pre-War 350 Bullet. Few were made and of those that were made for the 39/40 season many were impressed into the forces so they are rare. That's 'proper bike' enough for me! Factory pic of engine attached.

Certainly were Leon, plus Albion also supplied them with a couple of different chain lines to boot. As it happens the VMCC library has quite a few official Albion factory line drawings of various boxes giving all the relevant dimensions and particulars needed to install them in the frame of your choice.
On my solitary visit to the library I managed to get a copy of each and Iím surprised how often I refer to them.

And I donít know why youíre grumbling MarkM. You now have the start of a proper bike.

Cheers,

Thanks for that very detailed reply 33d6! I will pass the message on. It might end up with me if I know the finder. Not that I can do anything with it...

It was their own design and build - they had a very extensive factory and building 25,000-ish bikes for WW1 established them as manufacturers. The 2-speed cross-over box didn't change much between about 1912 and 1926-7.

Any idea who would have made the box for Douglas?

Maybe, but I suspect leaking oil and a bit of maintenance were considered ok in the 1920s.

That's interesting - I'm obviously stuck in the 1920s. Were there other versions of the box with pivot or top mounts?
