There you go, I never knew that the legendary motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield used to make bicycles. Royal Enfield used to be a British motorcycle manufacturer who also made bicycles (like many other manufacturers, then and now - see related below), and when they closed down the factories in the 1960s, transferring the production to India, it would appear that the bicycle section went to Japan.
The bicycles, like the motorcycles, are sturdy with class. However, it looks like they never went back into production. Pity. Maybe Royal Enfield India should consider making bicycles again.

So now your kids can emulate you.... and get used to living the life of the green team.

You too can be the proud owner of a Harley-Davidson. But not a motorcycle... a bicycle!
No, Harley is not abandoning building motorcycle for bicycles. They used to make bicycles back in 1917-1918, but stopped since no one was interested in buying them.
Except maybe this person, who is auctioning off the 1918 girl's model.
