Army Enfield on civvy street

A couple of snaps taken in the immediate post-war years. The bike is an ex-WD Royal Enfield Model CO typical of the thousands of army bikes auctioned off after the war, sold in job lots to dealers and civilianised for a post war home market starved of bikes by the export drive. Many of the surplus Royal Enfields were sold off through London dealers Pride and Clarke and finished in their hallmark burgundy paint.
