SOLD - Royal Enfield 500 Bullet Electra X with Watsonian GP Manx Sidecar
A rare opportunity to acquire this lovely classic combination of a Royal Enfield paired from new with the classic Watsonian GP Manx Sidecar, surely one of the handsomest retro outfits anywhere.
This outfit was supplied new from Dave Wick's Motorcycles in Norfolk for a retired lady school teacher (true!) who only used it locally for visiting friends etc. It had only done barely a 1000 miles when acquired by the second owner who then sold it on to the third owner in January 2016, he cleaned it, serviced it, replaced the rear shocks as they were rusty and added a further 1350 miles before I purchased in June 2018 and now showing 2710 miles. It is MOT'd until January 2020 and passed without any advisories.
I have a file with MOT and parts receipts from the previous owner and myself.
I've upgraded a few parts to give it a retro look with a new Bullet tank, smaller chrome indicators, new seat cover and new exhaust down pipe instead of the lean burn pipe that restricted the power now producing more power.
Riding a bike and sidecar has its own style, but is brilliant fun, especially if you have a dog. You may not get there fast, but you look good getting there slow....., and everybody loves seeing our dog with his Doggles and neck scarf, (always have to wait for people to take photos on arrival!) Dog not included in sale.
Other stuff you need to know; there is minor pitting in the chrome on the wheels, but it doesn't detract from the looks. It weeps a bit of oil from the engine when it's hot (it's an Enfield!). There is a slight bit of paint damage to the mudguard on the sidecar due to hedge rows. The sale includes the original luggage rack, original tank, tonneau and indicators.
Selling as I now have a VW project and need the space.
The bike is available to view near Crewkerne, Somerset.
