Royal Enfield Firefly

One more...

For offer...a Royal Enfield Firefly...to be honest, I have had this frame for a few years and have found out very little about it! But...in reducing the fleet...time for me to fly!

Specs...

Seat Tube CTC = 55 cm
Seat Tube CTT = 56 cm
Top Tube CTC = 56 cm

Head Tube = 5.5"
Rear Gap = 124 mm

This one has QUITE the look to it...it is a very attractive older bike!

I have a lot of "stuff" to go with it...look at the last picture. Also...not sure if the seat post or stem are stuck...simply was lazy and did not try them. If there is interest, I can test them

Price for this one...$125 plus shipping, payment via Paypal Friend/Family (if you want other Paypal, you pay fees)

Pretty neat, and I'm kinda-sorta interested in picking up a frame that's older than I, but too small for me. Is that unique white design running back from the head tube lugs original, or did some PO get creative there?

Seatpost looks to be a Birmalux. Nice frame. Surprised it does not have the right fork bolt for a light. Does it have the inside nub ?

Not sure what the "inside nub" is...

My apology for the vagueness. Instead of a bolt to hold a light bracket on the fork, they had a nub on the inside of the fork to keep a light bracket clamp from sliding down.

Was wondering if the fork has that nub or bump.

I wish [MENTION=190292]daf1009[/MENTION] rode bigger bikes! Judging by the rear dropouts and fork crown, this bike came out of Raleigh's Nottingham factory; but I don't recognize the lugs nor the seat stay caps. That is to say, I don't think I've seen them on a Raleigh. Interesting frame with a lot of character for sure!
