Bert Greeves began making invalid carriages after the Second World War before going into production of motorcycles in 1953. Greeves' interest in off-road sport was evident by the inclusion of a scrambles model in the very first model line-up. Subsequently offering models for trials and motocross competition throughout their manufacturing time, Greeves made the break with Villiers engines by producing their own engine for the Challenger motocross model introduced for 1964.
This first year Challenger dates from approximately 1964 and is an older restoration. It has twin-shock rear suspension with the traditional cast alloy beam frame, alloy wheel rims, fibreglass petrol tank and lightweight plastic front mudguard. Fitted with drum brakes front and rear, it will require some re-commissioning prior to further use. There are no documents, and whilst the engine turns over, its mechanical condition is unknown and is sold strictly as viewed.
As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
