Rare Enfield cleaned up and running

Further to the article on Royal Enfield 250s in the December 2012 issue of TCM, I have only just acquired a 250T trials model, fitted with lights at the factory, which is in original condition and one owner for almost the whole of its life
Rare Enfield cleaned up and running

It is a 1963 model and I have the original bill of sale but not the original logbook. I think it is quite rare. I have never seen one before in many years of involvement in trials riding and motor cycles generally.

The original owner bought it in 1963 and used it until 1989, after which it was stored until acquisition by a new lady owner earlier this year. The first owner had it for 49 years.

I have spent the last couple of weeks cleaning it up, getting it running, and checking that everything works with a few short rides.

Perhaps it would make a good follow up article, not only as a rare model in its own right, but also because it has an interesting history and would make good reading as an ‘original and unrestored’ feature.
