Royal Enfield 3hp

On Display

The production vee-twin engine, with overhead inlet and side exhaust valves, and other machines from the Redditch factory were built under licence by Motosacoche in Switzerland.

This particular machine recalls an unhappy occasion. It was ridden to third place in the 1914 Junior TT, but after crossing the finish line, the rider, P.J. Walker, crashed into barriers across the course and later died from his injuries. It is thought that he suffered concussion when he fell during the last lap.
