1959 Greeves 246cc 24DB Sports Single Project
Frame no. 59/2892
Engine no. 411A 3847
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, generating valuable publicity that helped sell the roadsters. For the 1959 season there were two new road models: the 24DB Sports Single and 25DB Sports Twin, the former powered by Villiers' 31A engine and the latter by their 2T. 'Paddle fin' hubs, as fitted to the Hawkstone scrambler, were an extra-cost optional. This incomplete Sports Single is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
