1964 Cotton 250cc Trials
Registration no. JGC 446C
Frame no. TC192
Engine no. 652B 2312
Trials became increasingly popular in the early 1960s, given that more expensive and heavier 350/500cc 4-strokes could now be "out-gunned" by the 200/250cc models from DOT, Greeves, or Cotton. Gloucester's Cotton factory enjoyed considerable success in this period with a series of neat trials and scrambles machines powered by Villiers engines. JGC was acquired in a restored condition by the vendor's late father, circa 1987. A lifelong 2-wheel enthusiast he used the machine just occasionally for riding the back lanes adjacent his north Kent home; it was subsequently stored from about 2005 onwards. The bike is fitted with a Greeves alloy cylinder barrel, plus side stand and speedometer. This is an ideal mount for green lanes or highway, subject to the usual mechanical checks before riding. Offered with V5C and currently SORN-ed.
