Royal Enfield tricycle is in great shape, seller says

Looking at ads for used Royal Enfields is often challenging.
A Royal Enfild tricycle for sale on CraigsList here in Florida is "in great shape," the seller says but, unfortunately, the photographs make it hard to see the bike.

I've tracked down the origin of Royal Enfield pedal powered tricycles, which often turn up for sale in the U.S.

No doubt they were especially popular in retirement communities like those in Florida. This one is in Altamonte Springs, near Orlando.

Look closely at the photos. It does appear that the tricycle is in like new condition, although it probably has been around since the 1980s.

A U.S. company brought the tricycles to the United States branded as Royal Enfields. They were manufactured in Asia, with no connection to Royal Enfield of England or India.

The white-wall tires on this one are especially attractive.

The asking price seems high: $1,000, about 10 times what we normally see in ads for these tricycles.
