Greeves' unorthodox trademarks of a cast beam 'downtube' and rubber-in-torsion leading-link fork proved adaptable to almost all forms of motorcycle from humble commuter to clubman's road-racer, but it was the firm's off-road products which really put it on the map. 'Scottish' had been adopted as the trials model's name following Jack Simpson's victory in the Scottish Six Days Trial's 200cc category in 1957, the first year Greeves had fielded a factory team in this prestigious event, but it would be 1969 before the Essex firm took the premier award, courtesy of Billy Wilkinson. This particular Scottish was purchased by the current vendor in 2012 and subsequently restored, as evidenced by a £862.86 bill on file from Villiers Services for an engine rebuild. The machine is described by the vendor as in generally very good order, having covered only test miles since the engine rebuild. A new tank has been fitted (original included in the sale together with the original front numberplate). Accompanying documentation consists of an old style buff logbook, current V5C, two old MoT certificates and quantity of expired tax discs. Deviations from standard include - most notably - the telescopic front fork and REH hub/brake, improvements made by the vendor.
