Lot Details
1967 Greeves 250cc Anglian Trials
Frame no. 24THS A112
Engine no. 37A 161FC687
Between 1959 and 1966 Greeves effectively dominated the open to centre trials scene and, thanks to Don Smith, won a fair number of national events against intensive opposition from Sammy Miller on Ariel. While Greeves were in the ascendancy at this time a Scottish Six Day win continued to prove elusive, and, after the arrival of Bultaco, Montesa, and Ossa, they were forced to share the honours. This wasn't simply a question of sharing awards for, far more importantly, the Spanish "invaders" were now selling in considerable volume. Thundersley's response was the Anglian, although still fitted with the superb Challenger-barrel Villiers engine. The improved model Greeves was introduced with "banana" type front suspension, which gave more movement than the traditional rubber sprung forks; Cerianis were later offered as an option, a spec that helped Bill Wilkinson to a convincing SSDT victory in 1959. Supplied new by Don Smith Motorcycles in December 1967 'RRK 10E' was formerly owned and prepared by Alistair Cameron (note the "works" hubs and MDS type alloy fuel tank) who, prior to his untimely passing, would spend several weeks at a time working at Thundersley. The machine was apparently stored for a lengthy period, 1975 onwards, and subsequently acquired for the vendor's collection six years ago, since when it has not been ridden. Offered without registration documents.
