You may want to read more about Royal Enfield.
Royal Enfield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have attached this picture that I took in the National motorcycle museum in Birmingham.

More commonly known as BSA Bantam. I was told they initially came with hand gears?

Yes it is a Bantam 250 two stroke BSA. The rigid frame version of this had hand gears but not this one

These were quiet common till the mid nineties
