A Fitting Tribute

John Hoban has honoured his grandfather’s achievements in World War Two by restoring and running a Royal Enfield WD/CO 350cc

The Royal Enfield 350cc WD/CO overhead valve model superseded the underpowered side valve 350cc WD/C early in 1942

John Hoban’s family worked the land of the West Lancashire coastal plain for generations. Nestled in a well-tended workshop beside the old brick farmhouse where John now lives, stands a finely restored Royal Enfield WD/CO 350cc. The bike is a tribute to John’s grandfather, also John Hoban.
