Enfield Meteor 700cc Secioned Show Model
This sectioned exhibition Enfield model shows
the constuctional details of virtually every
component and sub-assembly of the Meteor.
The production models gave out 36bhp @ 6,000rpm
and this increased power meant that an extra
clutch plate was required together with modified
damping of the rear suspension units and a stiffer
rear fork than on the earlier 500cc machine.
To cope with the higher speed, the machine was
given a dual 6 inch front brake and a 7 inch
The 1953 Motor Cycle road test reported very
favourably on the machine and gave a top speed
of 94mph. Detail improvements followed over
the next few years, including a change to separate
magneto ignition and an alternator system in
1956. The model shown here has the 1955 pattern
of magdyno and the last year of metal tank badges.
The price was approx. £240.0.0.
