Lot Details
1971 Greeves 249cc Griffon Enduro
Registration no. XFW 119J
Frame no. 60 N 188
Engine no. GPF 6 / 173
Founded in Thundersley, Essex, by Bert Greeves and Derry Preston Cobb, Greeves were perhaps the most distinctive of the British lightweight motor cycle makers. Firmly based in off-road competition, their most distinctive feature was their cast-alloy frame beam. Late in the 'sixties, their staple Villiers engine outdated, Greeves moved to other suppliers and more modern designs. XFW 119J is, states its long-term owner, 'a 'Griffon Enduro' much as it left the factory'. The tank is a new steel replacement for the porous original and stainless spokes have been fitted to the original Dunlop rims. Offred in beautiful condition, with V5C and Greeves Association certificate, this is one to cherish.
