Lot Details
1959 Greeves 246cc 24SAS Hawkstone Scrambler Project
Frame no. 59 1292
First introduced for the 1958 season, the 'Hawkstone' scrambler and 'Scottish' trials iron used the 197cc Villiers 9E engine to begin with. Versions powered by the new 246cc 31A engine joined the range for 1959, the scrambler being distinguished by radially finned 'paddle' hubs as standard. The Hawkstone was updated with the 34A engine for 1960, at the same time gaining a beefier cast-alloy frame fitted with taper roller head bearings and boasting a stiffer and wider rear sub-frame. The following year Greeves' own alloy cylinder barrel and head debuted on the 24MCS 'Moto-Cross Special', the 24SCS Hawkstone continuing to use the Villiers cast-iron barrel. Updated with the later alloy engine top-end, this incomplete Hawkstone is offered for restoration and sold strictly vas viewed. The machine comes with a copy programme for the Nantwich Grand National Scramble held at Hatherton Hall on 7th October 1962, which lists 'H Parker' as competitor on a Greeves. There are no registration documents with this Lot, which is sold without reserve.
