Instructions for use:
1. Remove carefully from the packaging.
2. Inspect the sign and feel pleased that you bought it.
3. Find a suitable spot on a suitable wall or door.
4. Position the sign thoughtfully using strips of masking tape if necessary.
5. Carefully mount the sign with nails or screws taking utmost care not to damage any part of the design (Tip: Use fibre washers both in front and behind the sign if you're the particular type or have an obsessive-compulsive tendency).
6. Open a beer, light a fag, hug your partner or favourite pet.
7. Stand back and enjoy the sign and do this as often as time and convenience allows.
8. Drop us an email to let us know how satisfied you are.
9. Wipe the sign occasionally with a soft cloth (and wax it if you're the particular type or have an obsessive-compulsive tendency).
10. Tell your friends.
That's all that's required. The sign should still be fit for purpose long after you're gone, and we hope that's a long time into the future.

IT'S GOTTA BE RIGHT
We only sell signs that we
hang on our own walls. If you have a problem with anything you buy from Sump, tell us and we'll sort it out. Pronto.
No fuss. No arguments.
With every year, Royal Enfield motorcycles get better and better. New bikes. Improved design. More effective quality control. Superior materials. And better marketing to ensure that the world knows all about it.
And it's only fitting. The original Royal Enfield (RE) company was, after all, a great manufacturer.
Based in Redditch in the West Midlands of England, RE built a range of excellent bikes, not least the famed Bullet which was a seriously competent challenger on the trials circuit.
Most people are now well aware of the fact that in the mid-1950s the Bullet was built under licence in India, and when the UK factory finally closed, the Indians continued to build the bikes.
The company, currently part of Eicher Motors, has thrown a lot of money at the Royal Enfield brand and has very large ambitions. The "Britishness" is still there in the design—not least due to the various British firms and British individuals that are currently involved in the manufacture. But the modern product is all Indian. No one should try to diminish that.
Our metal garage sign, however, is aimed not directly at the Royal Enfield Bullet, but at one of its successors; the 500cc Classic Chrome which has been around in one form or another since 2009.
Same basic design, but with a brand new 500cc engine that's far more refined than the older Bullet, more reliable, more oil-tight and even better on fuel at around 70 - 80mpg.
Additionally, there's both electric and kick-starting, and a five-speed gearbox.
Horsepower is around 27 @ 5,250rpm. Top speed is around 80mph. But these bikes aren't about top speed. They're all about having the right speed as required by a laid back touring and commuting mount.
We devised the slogan RIDE THE WORLD because REs are so ubiquitous. You can find Enfield dealers just about anywhere on the planet, and at any given moment there are always a few Royal Enfield riders exploring the more remote countries and regions where only the more intrepid among us dare venture.
The size is a generous 300mm x 400mm, which is roughly the size of two A4 sheets of paper. The signs are printed direct to metal in the traditional way.
Will you like it when you see it? We think so. If we didn't, we wouldn't be flogging 'em.
We package these signs as well as we reasonably can, and we despatch as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours of ordering, and very rarely longer than 2-3 days if stock has run out and needs to be re-supplied).
Either way, we'll keep you posted. And if for any reason we can't supply your sign, we'll tell you without unnecessary delay and will refund your money in full.
And remember this if you will:
We don't sell anything that we don't hang in our own garages.
