    I have also the Royan Enfield gentlemen’s bicycle from 1930s. The frame number of my bicycle is 432XXX, but I don’t know the production year of it.

    What frame number is on your bicycle? And which type of backwheel hub it has?

    If you wish, I can take pictures from my bicycle.

    I’m vintage bicycles collectioneer and restorer from Estonia, I have more than 200 bicycles (before 1970) which have all driven in Estonia decades ago.

    I have a Royal Enfield bicycle that was purchased in San Francisco in 1947 or’48. It is a girls bike and, I believe, it is 3/4 height of a full size bike. It is missing its original tire pump and the tiny leather pouch of tools that hung from behind the seat. It was given new tires about 15 years ago but they are now not in good shape. It has not been riden for about 12 years. I would like to sell it if anyone is interested. Thank you. Susan Nelson

      Susan, I also have a Royal Enfield girls bike from the late 40’s or early 50’s. I’ve just been trying to find information on it when I found your blog. Do you still have yours and what are they worth? Thanks, John

    I have just purchased a Royal Enfield off Ebay, it is a Olympiad model with a curved top tube. Vendor says it was his grandfathers bike and he bought it in 1963. It is completely original, only the tyre inflator is missing and the rear tyre has been replaced as it is blackwall and i think it should be whitewall like the original front. Does anyone have any information on this model.
