Thank you Eric for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our October Gallery.
Congratulations to Eric Biley of Norwalk for winning Bike of the Month with his 1954 Royal Enfield Ensign.
This is a rare bike here in the US. The current models of Royal Enfield available in the US are manufactured in India. This Royal Enfield Ensign, is the original English built model.
Eric has owned this bike for eight months. He has placed in the top three Bike of the Month votes two other times. Finally he joins the ranks of the winners.
Two modifications have been made to the bike. New custom canvas saddlebags have replaced the original leather bag and an LED brake light has been added to the rear fender where there was a reflector. Both mods fit well with the age and patina of the bike.
Eric also owns a vintage 1968 Triumph 250 and a 1994 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail. Maybe next month we'll see his Triumph.
