Flat tank Royal Enfield 350
circa 1927 Royal Enfield 350cc side valve.
Cracking photo of a chap in Scout (?) uniform astride his 350cc Royal Enfield. Until the thirties Royal Enfield model names were extremely dull and just reflected the engine size or a model code. So it was that this particular bike was simply known as the 2 3/4 hp Standard Model 350. Note the rolled up blanket serving as a pillion seat.
