Whilst their street machines were acknowledged as slightly more expensive than the equivalent sized James or ’Barnett Greeves built a strong following amongst the cognoscenti, who appreciated the many quality touches, some inherited from the firm’s all conquering range of competition machines. The cast alloy frame for instance, which provided such fine handling, was undoubtedly the main feature, and, when coupled with leading link forks, sturdy alloy mudguards, plus self-locking nuts on all the chassis parts, it’s no wonder that Greeves were perceived as a little bit special! In single ownership throughout VJT 52 was purchased new from Mentone Motors, Parkstone, on January 12th 1964, and has completed 11562 miles to date. The last MOT expired in July 1976, since when it was laid up, under blankets, in a dry garage. According to the owner her late husband rode the Greeves regularly to work, accumulating about 1000 miles each year. Resulting from his exceptional care of the machine while in use, and its subsequent storage, it is in 100% original condition, if very slightly “faded” for a machine that’s been unused for over 30 years. The sole damage is a scuffmark to the nearside front surface of the handlebar fairing, and a missing roundel [inscribed “25”] from the offside front fork guard. The specification includes a horn, a two-tone seat cover – under which resides the original pristine red seat – and pillion footrests. The Lot includes Greeves and Villiers Service booklets, a spare set of gaskets, two new control cables, and an HPS tyre pump. Supplied with an RF60 Log Book.
