Veteran Royal Enfield shows what it's worth

The first motorcycle was produced by Royal Enfield in 1901, one year before Triumph and four years before Harley-Davidson (although the New York Times is unaware of this). Motorcycle production was interrupted in 1904 when the company concentrated on cars, and resumed in 1910. An example of this "second generation" of motorcycles is depicted in the photo, sporting a Motosacoche V-Twin engine with 2hp. The bike went out on auction with an estimated price range around £3000. It sold for £13,000!
