Description

"The company founded by Bert Greeves ,MBE soon after WW2 was the same Invacar company that won a major contract to provide motorised, three-wheeled, invalid carriage vehicles to the UK Government Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance. The invalid carriages sold well and established a firm foundation for the factory, based in Essex. The factory possessed its own foundry and very soon, became expert in the new technology of fibreglass moulding. As a keen trials rider, Bert Greeves soon indulged his interest and started to build motorcycles for trials and scrambles and in 1954, a roadster joined the range. Using Villiers or British Anzani engines and suspension based on the invalid cars' rubber units, the frames illustrated another Greeves innovation. In place of the normal tubular front section and steering head was a single enormously strong aluminium alloy H-section beam.
This Greeves TS Trials bike presents in very good condition after being restored although she does require a little recommissioning due to lack of use. Supplied with an official dating certificate and a V5C registration document, this 250cc motorcycle looks to be attractively estimated given the condition and rarity of this motorcycle. "
