Built in England out of a Royal Enfield Bullet, “Patrol Car” was branded as an Indian when sold in the United States. Others were sold as “Pashley Enfields”. By any name, it’s a rare find. This one’s even more rare as it has been customized and now features a 1964 Royal Enfield Mark 1 Interceptor engine.
Typically, the Patrols were equipped with a three-speed (plus reverse) transmission with hand change and foot throttle, but this one-off isn’t typical. Called the Royal Rickshaw, it was purchased new in 1967 (yes, after sitting at the dealer for almost a decade) and the original owner took four years to clean up the storage wear and create an interesting custom.
The seller states that the “bike starts and rides good but will need to be serviced/tuned and needs new tires before it can be ridden. I believe these tires are the original tires used in the build.” The sale includes trophies, a tow hitch, and magazines in which this custom was featured.
Find the Royal Rickshaw for sale in Phoenix, Arizona with a BIN of $6,795 here on eBay.
