2008 Royal Enfield 500cc Clubman c/w. Electric Start and 5 Speed gearbox

 converted to Hitchcock 612 cc.


The previous owner (an American) purchased this bike 2008 and commissioned Royal Enfield of Surrey (RES)  to tune it using the

Hitchcock 612cc kit. On his return to America he decided not to take the bike with him and left it with RES to sell it.   


I purchased this bike from Royal Enfield Surrey. Ripley in May 2010 and have owned for 5 years. Being an old rocker at heart. nbsp;I

always wanted a big single sports bike like the iconic BSA Gold Star or the Thruxton Velocette but their current market value

is prohibitively expensive.

This Bike has been sparingly used (1. 32 Miles to date) and totally mollycoddled from new. In my ownership over the last 5 years I have

completed less than 500 miles between the months of May to October 2010 to 2014. It is then stored over winter in a heated garage until

the following spring when it is re-commissioned. serviced and MOT'd ready for the summer.

This tuned Royal Enfield will match the power and looks of the iconic sixties big singles and has the benefit of modern construction methods

(especially electric start).  This bike has lived up to my expectation and it is a fantastic ride. Regretably due to health problems I have not

used it as much as I had hoped and so have decided to sell it.


This bike Is truly a one off and the new owner will have one of the best Royal Enfield Clubmans built.
