It doesn’t have to be shiny to get on this site!  This was discovered by Dave Greaves whilst digging some foundations for his shed!  And thanks to the guys on the forum for this info "it is a 2 3/4 hp touring Royal Ruby of about 1922. The 3 hp has the two side stands but the 2 3/4hp has the conventional rear stand. It is the touring model as the sports model had downswept bars . All models had the Royal Ruby patent adjustable forks fitted with a laminated spring. As well all Ruby frames have patent safety stays fitted to the front down bar connecting the steering lug to the engine and "eliminating all chance of breakage to the front down tube" (i.e. it has 3 front down tubes as it has two supplementarys bolted on either side of the front down tube)."   And the bottom picture shows how the bike will look after a tube of Solvol Autosol and a samll amount of polishing….

  1. Hello,

    My collegue is interested to rebuild vintage motorcycles. He already build this motorcycle and showed me pictures of it. It looks really exactly the same brand new Royal Ruby 1922. This business is his hobby.

    I said to him that he should share pictures with internet. What do you think? Wanna see what happened to this salvage motorcycle?

    Sorry for my bad english.
