Introduced in 1963 the mighty 750cc Interceptor was closely based on the 700cc Enfield Constellation but with added refinement of a dynamically balanced crankshaft. Most of the production was destined for the USA to satisfy the North American market’s insatiable appetite for ever larger engines, although it sold in relatively small numbers when compared to the more popular BSA and Triumph twins. Probably one of the best kept secrets in classic biking today, more likely as they are relatively few of them on the roads of the UK the Interceptor has character all of its own, and today it commands a loyal following among those lucky enough to find one.
This MK1 example was first registered 1st Nov. 1964. Partially restored in 2008 the bike received further recent work by the last owner in 2017 and is good running order and generally good cosmetic condition. It comes with a large file of bills for parts, and an original workshop manual as well as the current UK V5C logbook.
