Description

1961 Greeves 250cc Trials
Frame no. 61/3217

Greeves trials and scrambles models between 1959 and 1967 require very little historic introduction other than how for 5 or more years they were the UK's most popular mount for competitive Clubmen. At the same time the factory's 'works' riders were continually winning trade-supported national events. This purposefully-trimmed trials Greeves is a functional 'cocktail', with several components replaced by lighter or later items, in particular the single sided steel hubs which save approximately 2lbs over the full-width-alloys. Although not available as a factory option until 1968 the telescopic forks are arguably a more desirable fit than the original rubber-controlled leading link suspension; likewise, the machine is fitted with the stronger earlier steel 'tank. Owned by an active feet-up enthusiast, who has a preference for 4-strokes, the square-barrelled Greeves has not been ridden for at least ten years. Offered without documents.
