I just received this message from the great people at "battlegraphics" .....Graham Scarth, hairman of the Royal Enfield Owners Club in the UK confirms that, ased on the motor number you provided and factory records: "Engine # SMR 4409 is from an Indian Apache despatched from Redditch in June 1957 to the Brockhouse depot at West Bromwich (UK) for subsequent export." The Apache is a rare model. Graham asks that you let him know the additional number that should appear on the front of the crankcase so he can add that to the factory records. (I believe this number relates the motor to its transmission, nformation the club is trying to gather). All best........... Don't let this RareOpportunity to own n "Old School" Classic slip away ..... Good Luck !!
