Default 1919 Royal Enfield engine for sale

To those who are aware of the motorcycling heritage, Royal Enfield doesn't need any introduction. And to these people goes this offer.

The engine is purchased 10 years ago. The former owner told that it belonged to a motorcycle that came here to Armenia after the World War II. After the parent bike crashed, the engine was put on another bike, which was riden for around 10 years, following which the engine was took off that motorcycle and kept idle until the 2000s. The engine label reads year 1919-1920. The gearbox and the carburator might not be original Enfield, not sure. However, they are present. The CC of the bike is not written anywhere, I assume (and it looks like) 650cc, I might be wrong. The engine is all rusty, some of the cylinder corners are broken as shown on the photos. The inside of the engine, however, is not rusty, it has been opened 10 years ago (then it was in a perfect condition), oiled and closed until now. Spark-plugs are present but are not original Enfield. The engine is not in a working condition. The bottom legs that can be seen on the photos are added later, for attaching the engine to the wooden stand.
While this is certainly not an engine to put on your next custom chopper and ride, this piece of history certainly has a much higher exhibitional (or collectional) value. Not everyone in the world owns a 1919 year Enfield engine - the period when the motorcycling manufacturing was just being born. The engine is made in England, it has witnessed the 2nd World War being riden by a nazi soldier, after the conquest of Germany it came here with an armenian soldier on, and now it can belong to you - attractive, ain't it!
