I AM RELUCTANTLY PASSING ON MY 1964 ROYAL ENFIELD SERIES 1 750 INTERCEPTOR. I BOUGHT THIS BIKE IN 2013, THE GENTLEMAN I BOUGHT IT FROM WAS THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL VELOCETTE CLUB OF NORTH AMERICA. HE ALSO HAD A HUGE MOTORCYCLE COLLECTION, A MUSEUM IN FACT. YOU CAN GOOGLE "JOHN STANLEY MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM" AND SEE WHAT I MEAN. IF YOU GO TO THE "BRITISH BIKES 2" PAGE YOU WILL SEE THIS BIKE THERE. AMONG OTHER THINGS IT SAT FOR 30 YEARS WITH THE TOP END APART. JOHN ACQUIRED AND RESTORED THE OLD GIRL IN 2001-02. THIS MOTORCYCLE WAS RESTORED WITH NOTHING BUT OEM FACTORY PARTS. HE RODE HER A BIT AND THEN THE OLD GIRL SAT IN HIS MUSEUM. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THE MILEAGE IS CORRECT, THIS BIKE HAS LESS THAN 11 THOUSAND MILES FROM BRAND NEW IN 1964.
WHEN I BOUGHT THIS BIKE IT RAN PERFECT WITH THAT BARK THAT ONLY A MAGNETO CAN PRODUCE. SINCE THEN I HAVE HAD TWO FULL HIP REPLACEMENTS AND TWO FULL KNEE REPLACEMENTS. THERE IS NO WAY THAT I CAN KICK THIS MASSIVE MOTOR OVER NOWADAYS, MUCH LESS RIDE HER.
AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICS THE CHROME IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE, AS IS THE ALUMINUM. THERE IS SOME PITTING, BUT ALL IN ALL EVERYTHING IS IN REALLY DECENT SHAPE.
THIS BIKE HAS BEEN SITTING FOR CLOSE TO FIVE YEARS. IT TURNS OVER FINE . THE MAIN THING THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IS THAT THE AMAL CARBS WILL NEED TO BE PULLED AND REBUILT, THEY ARE FROZEN FROM SITTING. THE BIKE REALLY SHOULD BE GONE OVER BY SOMEONE THAT KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING WITH OLD BRITISH MOTORCYCLES. IT SHOULD NOT NEED MUCH AT ALL TO GET HER BACK ON THE ROAD. THE NEW OWNER WILL GET DOZENS OF PAGES OF PARTS RECEIPTS, AND AS PER PICS, A CLUTCH CABLE, OWNERS MANUAL REPRINT AND A SERVICE MANUAL.

THIS IS A TRUE AND HONEST EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC MOTORCYCLES IN HISTORY. ITS WHAT THE NEW INDIANS (MADE WITH CHINESE METAL) AND ALL OTHER PRETENDERS WANT TO BE BUT NEVER WILL BE. A TRUE INVESTMENT IN A BYGONE AGE.
I HAVE LOTS OF PICS AND CAN TAKE ADDITIONAL PICS IF YOU WANT TO SEE ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR. WHATEVER ADDITIONAL INFO YOU NEED JUST LET ME KNOW AND I WILL TRY AND GET IT FOR YOU. THE BIKE HAS AN OPEN OREGON TITLE.
